The most popular cakes in Los Banos can be found at Mer-Nel’s Cake House. Rightly so, because their tagline says they’re the “Home of the Famous Chocolate Cakes.” No wonder people line up and they often go out of stock during the Christmas season. They say Mer-Nel’s cakes are almost always present during birthdays, reunions and other special events in the households of Los Banos.

Their bestseller is their heart-shaped chocolate cakes which you can buy the whole year round, not just during February.

My two most favorite cakes are the choco caramel cake and ube cake with yema filling.

I have a sweet tooth and the choco caramel cake truly does the job. It’s perfect with strong coffee to complement the sweetness. There are cherries on top. The whole cake is covered with hardened chocolate. And when you slice it, you’ll get a treat because just beneath the chocolate coating is a layer of icing. Then you’ll see layers of chocolate and caramel icing in between the moist chocolate cake.

The ube cake with yema is also something I could eat everyday. The icing and the chiffon cake are ube (yam) flavored but when you get to the center, you’ll enjoy the yema complementing the ube flavor. Yema is mostly egg yolks, milk and sugar.
