Weekend Food Tripping at: The Pink Vanilla

"Aging leads to weight gain due to slower metabolism" --- I've read that on various health magazines and fitness books for the longest time! Not that I worry about it but I do want to look fit and healthy as I grow older!

And on that exact day I got to be a year older, look at the surprise I received! 


A dear reader, who owns a home-based online store "The Pink Vanilla", sells cupcakes and bars got my address as she wanted me to try their cupcakes!  Who would have thought she'll send me ALL their cupcake flavors and MORE?  I'm not complaining though, it was delivered at home the morning of my 33rd birthday!


Eye candy!


And more!
Scroll down for more details of EACH cupcakes

Revel Bars 
Box of 12
Php175.00 (approx $4.00)
I took out a knife to slice the Revel Bars into smaller pieces as I'm scared of anything that goes above 50% sweet!  It was a nice surprise to taste a good amount of "fiber" on each small bite with the melted taste of chocolate MINUS the "very sweet" factor! 


Carrot Cupcake with Cream Cheese
Php45.00 (approx $1.00)

Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting
Php45.00 (approx $1.00)


Chocolate Chip Cupcake
Php49.00 (approx $1.10)
 

Carrot Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting
Php40.00 (approx $0.90)

Carrot Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting
Php40.00 (approx $0.90)

Devil's Food Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting
Php40.00 (approx $0.90)

Devil's Food Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting
Php40.00 (approx $0.90)


Oreo Cupcake
Php49.00 (approx $1.10)

Banana Cupcake with Vanilla Frosting
Php40.00 (approx $0.90)


Each of the cupcake is not only physically attractive but they taste equally as good!  My top picks would be Red Velvet with Cream Cheese Frosting --- I can't get enough of this!  I am saving this up and slicing them into tiny pieces and enjoy each bite!  Mr. AMW likes the Oreo Cupcake and Chocolate Chip cupcake because he enjoys not only the cupcake itself but the added cookies right on top!  Oh, he told me the generous amount of cream is a wonderful bonus!  My mom-in-law enjoyed the Banana and Carrot cupcake so it seems like we're not fighting over the same cupcakes!  

I actually brought some to my mom and dad and I told them to remove the cream and there they were savoring each mouthful not leaving a "spot" of cream behind!  (Sorry doc, I ruined their diet!) 

It was one of those extra "sweetness" in life that can make us smile and I want to thank The Pink Vanilla for the generous birthday treat! :)

Though I can't share the cupcakes to you, I hope the lovely photos can bring a smile on your face! :)  I'm 33, probably gained pounds from all the sweets, yet, I'm very happy and probably off to jog while you're reading this! :P

Feel free to check out The Pink Vanilla's Facebook page for price list, other food offerings OR you can just enjoy the photos without gaining weight!

 Have a sweet Sunday!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
