Chocolate Cake – Dimpy’s

If there’s one thing that makes Dimpy’s Chocolate Cake a clear standout among thousands of chocolate cakes in Manila, it has got to be its moistness.

While most chocolate cakes need elaborate decorations, Dimpy’s delicate cake speaks volumes in itself – even without the decorative caramel icing and all.

Chocolate Truffle Cake – Sugarhouse

Layers upon layers of chocolate chiffon cake and chocolate buttercream, it’s no wonder Sugarhouse’ Chocolate Truffle Cake comes out so smooth and creamy. Do get yourself in on the National Chocolate Cake Day festivities with an 8” cake, or their baby version of it if you’re feeling ‘healthy’.

Death by Tablea – Chocolat

They say chocolate cake tastes only as good as the chocolate you use, allowing us to safely assume that Chocolat’s Death by Tablea uses only the finest cacao.

Among this entire selection, it is certainly the most culinarily Filipino: marrying flavors of the bittersweet tablea and condensed milk for a unique depth of flavor. It’s a perfect mix of flavors for the perfect pair.

Supreme Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake – Sonja’s Cupcakes

Sonja’s Cupcakes is one of the biggest players when it comes to fun-sized iced confections, so it only makes sense that they also have bigger counterparts.

Double Chocolate Yema Cake – Slice

For locals and balikbayans alike, yema will always have a special place in our hearts. Slice must have had this in mind when they came up with their sinfully nostalgic Double Chocolate Yema Cake, which elevates the childhood snack by intelligently incorporating it into the classic dessert.

Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion – Nono

Many cakes do a lot of play on texture, but no one seems to pull it off quite like Nono’s Chocolate Oblivion. The cake itself is light and airy, but thanks to several layers of whipped cream and flavorful praline bits, you can’t help but get a nice contrast in every bite.
