I was having a terrific lunch of Pesto Cream Spaghetti and Grilled Porkchops the other day when my cousin raved about her friend’s cupcakes. I asked her what was special about it. She said they were soft, creamy, rich and downright sinful. I said ok I’m sold, what do I order? She recommended the Red Velvet cupcakes by Johnny Cupcakes.
Johnny Cupcakes is owned by CCA-trained Davaoeno John Ramirez. For now, he takes orders from his home but will soon set up shop on Jacinto Extension where his new store is being built.
I was so excited when I received my box of cupcakes. As soon as I took a bite, I was in cupcake heaven (if there is one). The cupcakes were nice and moist and not too sweet. The frosting was really creamy too. I’ve tasted high-end cupcakes such as Sonja’s in Manila, but I found their cupcakes somewhat dry. Johnny’s, on the other hand, are super moist (yes I have to say it again), and I could tell he doesn’t scrimp on ingredients.
Because of that, his cupcakes are a little on the expensive side. He sells them by the box of 6 pieces at P500, about P80 per piece. But I assure you, it’s worth it! These are perfect as Christmas giveaways and holiday treats for your kids. Other flavors include Chocolate Torte, Vanilla Torte, Carrot Cake and Tiramisu.
