Let it snow let it snow let it snow!

In anticipation of my family's arrival for Christmas I've been researching sweet treats to order from home bakers. I personally find the desserts and cakes in the Philippines to be the best in the world, and the creme de la creme are those made and sold straight from people's homes. My family and I have a sweet tooth. Growing up in HK, every time someone would come visit from the Philippines, we'd ask them to handcarry boxes of sans rival, buttercake and Brazo de Mercedes. Now those very familiar desserts have spawned creative variations with every home baker adding their signature touch to call it their own.

I came across a Manila food writer who writes about, among many other food delights, the pleasures of homebaking. Here are some home baked cakes I found on her site that I can't wait to order and try. My family and I are sure to sail through this Christmas on a sugar high!
