Wedding Cakes from Red Ribbon Bakeshop

The wedding cake is one item that should never be absent during the wedding day. The presence of the wedding cake is already a Filipino wedding tradition. During the reception, newlywed couples slice the cake and then feed one another with it.

It was believed that the slicing of the cake symbolizes the commitment of the husband and wife to work together ad support one another. Of course the wedding cake is surrounded by various superstitions, especially the one about good fortune for the newlywed couple and the guests.

My Beloved Wife Lei wanted a beautiful cake with three layers. Of course, we both wanted our wedding cake to be affordable.

Lei and I have tasted plenty of cakes from Red Ribbon Bakeshop. We enjoyed eating their cakes, especially our favorite Black Forest.

Since Red Ribbon sells good quality cakes, then they might also have the wedding cake that we wanted.

The Red Ribbon branch in SM Mall of Asia (SM MoA) is the very first place we checked for our wedding cake. Lei liked these two wedding cakes:

The two Red Ribbon cakes are both three-layered fondant cake. The cake is at the first layer while the other top layers are just styrofoam covered with icing. These cakes are offered in two flavors: rich rhum butter cake with chocolate filling and moist chocolate pound cake with chocolate filling.

The Twirl wedding cake costs around 4,500 pesos while Simple Elegance costs 3,850 pesos.

Red Ribbon Bakeshop requires that wedding cakes should be ordered one week prior to the wedding day. I think that they deliver the wedding cake right at the wedding venue.

Visit the Red Ribbon Bakeshop website for more wedding cake designs.

Our Verdict

Lei was turned off by the cakes of Red Ribbon Bakeshop, not because of the price (though that is the secondary reason), but because of the styrofoam at the top layers of their wedding cakes. Lei wanted all layers to be real cakes.

Inquiring about the wedding cakes is easy at Red Ribbon because they have books that contains all the cake designs for weddings, birthdays and other special occasion. Just approach any of the staff and ask about their wedding cakes.

Meanwhile, our search for the wedding cake continues.

  1. I love it all white. To me, that's classic.

    1. I'm pretty sure that white will be the cake for your daughter. :-)
