Our Wedding Cake from Salazar Bakery

.
After visiting four bake shops, we finally ended our search at Ongpin Street of Binondo Chinatown because My Beloved Wife Lei found the best deal for our wedding cake in Salazar Bakery.

Salazar Bakery is popular for its Chinese delicacies like hopia and mooncake. I once visited this bakery to buy mongo hopia and diced hopia, which tasted good.

Salazar Bakery is one busy shop along Ongpin Street because I always see plenty of customers inside their shop. The bakery is also one of the old bakeries in Manila, like Bakers’ Fair and Bakerite, since it was established in 1947.

I thought that Salazar Bakery only sells Chinese sweets until I passed by their shop one day and saw their window display:

It’s a three layered wedding cake!

Lei immediately liked the cake design so she decided that we visit Salazar Bakery.

One of the bakery staff immediately assisted when we asked about Salazar Bakery's wedding cakes. Their catalog shows different cake designs but I cannot remember if I saw fondant cakes. But that didn't matter for us because what we wanted is a wedding cake without dummy.

The prices of Salazar Bakery's wedding cakes are jaw-dropping for me since it is way cheaper than the cakes from Red Ribbon Bakeshop and Goldilocks.

Another plus point for them is that they can deliver the cake for a fee. The delivery fee depends on the location. I was also informed that earliest delivery time is around 9 in the morning. Good thing that our wedding reception is around lunch time.

Our Experience with Salazar Bakery


Lei decided to book Salazar Bakery for our wedding cake. The cake design that she wanted is the one displayed at their window.

Salazar Bakery allowed us to choose the flavor and motif (color scheme) for our wedding cake. For the flavor, we chose mocha. We also specified that the ribbon around the cake be in old rose accented by violet ribbon flowers. The flower candies are colored light blue. The “Happy Wedding” was replaced with our names.

We paid 1,950 pesos for the wedding cake inclusive of the delivery fee. We gave the full payment when we ordered the cake.

We were told that Salazar Bakery must be informed of cancellation or change of orders 2 days before the delivery date. Unfortunately, they don't refund for cancelled orders. This means that Salazar Bakery will not give you the money even if they don't make the that your ordered. These restrictions, however, were fine since were sure that we will not cancel our order.

We didn't have any complaint with Salazar Bakery. They delivered the cake on time and without any problem.

As for the wedding cake, the icing is sweet and that is to be expected. The sponge cake tasted really good. It reminded of the sponge cake from Eng Ho but Salazar's is softer.

I'm so happy doing the first slice of it with my wife during the wedding reception.

I highly recommend the wedding cakes of Salazar Bakery. Their cakes are cheap but they didn't disappoint.

Salazar Bakery may be contacted at telephone numbers (02) 733-1392 and (02) 733-1397.

Their address is 779 – 785 Ongpin Street, Sta. Cruz, Manila.
