TRP Cake Studio | Character Cake | A Very Filipino Cake

When the super nice Patty Laurel asked us to make a Tondo cake, we couldn’t wait to start making it.

Tondo Fiesta Cake

I grew up oblivious to what happened in Tondo, but media portrayed the place as dangerous and dingy. Unfortunately, that’s what I grew up with.  When I grew older, I’ve met people who lived in Tondo and I have actually gone to Tondo several times. I learned that it’s just as Filipino as anywhere in the metro. You’ve got kids enjoying street games, and women with their rollers chitchatting with the friendly, neighbourhood sari-sari store ale. You have the tanod (patrollers) going around, also taking their occasional breaks, and the askals generally chillin’ around.

Thanks, Patty, for allowing us to be a part of such a wonderful event! We had so much fun making this cake for the kids 🙂
