OhMaih’s Cakes: Sinful, rich, delectable

OK, full disclosure.

I don’t like chocolate cake. Anybody who knows me well would know about that strange quirk: I could eat tons of those lovely dark bars (the higher the cacao content, the better), but I always steer clear when the bars are baked into pastry.

Like I said, it’s a quirk.

Until I tasted OhMaih’s Dark Booze Cake.

It’s sensual, and sinful, and silky and with a melt-in-your-mouth texture, with just a hint of the liquor . When I cut through the cake, that lovely dark melted chocolate just oozed out of the cake. But before we get to the melted center, you have to break through the thick crunchy chocolate top.

Heaven. I’m an instant convert.

Owned by Maita Gasataya, who according to her husband Cong. Greg is an excellent baker, OhMaih’s Cakes and Pastries also offers a slew of products.

There is, for instance, the 100-gram cookie, a gut-busting, diet-destroying confection the size of a small fist that comes in two variants: chunky choco cookies, and chunky Oreo cookies. The chunky choco cookie is generously topped with hunks of chocolate chunks – chunks, not chips, mind – while the chunky Oreos have large shards of the cookie embedded within and on top of the dough base.

Others are the Red Velvet Cake, with a cream cheese filling, and the Chocolate Oreo Cake.

The pictures alone are enough to make you grab your fork and eat through the LCD screen.

Don’t believe me; just buy one of ‘em cakes. Bonus green points for the lovely gold tin can that comes with the Dark Choco Booze Cake, and the Red Velvet Cake. Beats a cake box in my book because the tin cans can be re-used.

Plus, it is for a good cause, because part of the sales goes to Missionaries of Charity, as Maita herself has been deeply immersed in charity work.
