I am a sucker for cupcakes. I love sugar, spice and everything nice. When we got back from Manila last December, I actually went home a bit frustrated because I wasn’t able to try even one of the famous cupcakery spots here, you know, the ones you see in food blogs or posts of people you follow in Instagram and Twitter.
While we were walking to find a jeepney to ride home after we attended a Prayer Meeting, two or three months ago, we passed by a then closed colorful shop. When I read it was a cupcakery, I got all giddy and told my sister I want to go and try this place. Lo and behold, after more or less a month, we did. 😉
We went to Marie’s Culinary Creations last month (I know, this is an overdue post) and I disproved my sister’s theory that it’s just a simple shop where you can buy to-go cupcakes or cakes and then leave the place. The moment we entered, I felt like a child entering such a nice place for the first time. With all the pastel colors surrounding the place, the vibes went from okay when I was outside to super good when we came in. The person who accommodated us and led us to a table (Ate, I’m sorry, I forgot your wonderful name) was so welcoming, she immediately gave us a flier (with the Cafe’s menu at the back) plus their calling card after we were seated.
So after ordering and checking in on Foursquare I took some photos of the place. The place, I think, can hold 15-20 persons. It may be quite small, but I love the fact that it’s colorful and a bit private. When we went there, two girls were on their way out and we had the place all to ourselves. And yes, ladies and gentlemen, there’s wifi.

Here’s a closer look of the cupcakes in the above photo.Won’t go on naming them one by one as I believe the labels are easy to read.
Of these lovely cupcakes, I got to taste the Tiramisu (which I ate at home), and the Pink Coffee Cupcake since my sister ordered that one for dessert. Aside from cupcakes, they also have Oatmeal Cookies, Brownies and Butterscotch. They also serve a few rice meals and pasta. Not only do they have cold beverages but hot ones as well! And oh, I heard they are also open for orders and customizing cupcakes, aside from their specialties and the ones they serve in the place.
Let’s get to my favorite part! I ordered Lasagna and Dark Chocolate Truffle Freeze. I loved how their Lasagna tasted, plus the fact that it was served hot. The bread seemed to balance the taste of the Lasagna. As for my Truffle Freeze, I wanted to go dark this time (although I’m not really a fan of dark chocolates) and it didn’t disappoint! For my dessert, I ordered Blueberry Cheesecake, which is my all-time favorite dessert. If you want to see what my sister ordered, go check out her post here [x].

Yerp, that’s me, shamelessly posing with my Dark Chocolate Truffle Freeze
Ting and I stayed there for more than an hour, talking about my plans now that I have graduated and some of the things we both wanted. It’s nice to have sister bonding time and talk about anything under the sun. She’s been complaining incessantly that we haven’t had a date in a long time (last time was when I treated her in Khalil’s). Yes, ladies and gents, she’s clingy like that.
My forever date
The wonderful person I was talking about in the first part of this post. Sorry Ate, I forgot your name. 🙁
Here’s a map of their place, which I grabbed from their Instagram. So if you’re in Legazpi and you want to try something new, go visit Marie’s Culinary Creations. You can also find them on Facebook and Instagram. I left the place satisfied and having the feeling that I should come back again some time soon! I’m pretty sure you’ll feel the same way too! 😉
