Have you ever been to a party where the cake was so beautiful it was almost too painful to cut? It’s so exciting to get the first bite of such a beauty, but too often these gorgeous cakes decked out in fondant are just pretty on the outside.
We found a dessert spot in Maginhawa whose sweets are beautiful inside and out!
Wadough’s is a whimsical cafe that specializes in out-of-the-box and Instagram-worthy pastries. After first selling their cakes and pastries online in 2012, Wadough’s now offers all-day breakfast meals, coffees, light snacks, and customized cakes for special events.
Maginhawa is known for being a busy place that’s packed with restaurants and foodies crawling through the neighboring streets. Wadough’s is neatly tucked away in the laid back area of the food haven known as Sikatuna Village.

The understated cafe has simple interiors that are intimate and make for a cozy place to work or chill. They don’t have a lot of decor going on because let’s face it: the cakes and pastries are decoration enough! See for yourself:

You’d think that the brains behind those beauties was either an artist or a master pastry chef but you couldn’t be more wrong.
Wadough’s owner Eduardo used to work as a video editor until he got burned out and wanted to try his hand at something new. Having a fondness for the kitchen and a history with video, he joined a baking competition on reality TV. Without any formal experience, Eduardo bagged 4th place.
Fun Fact: Eduardo, the owner, had a hard time pronouncing his letter Rs as a kid and "wadough" was the result of that.

Taking this as a sign, he joined Globe’s 2015 Big Food Entrepreneur and pitted his signature Black Bottoms (chocolate fudge cupcakes with a salted cheesecake center) against 90 chefs from all over the country. He took home the gold and a free spot at Mercato!
Two years later, Wadough’s was born. The little neighborhood cafe has become quite the dessert destination. They serve all the sweets in store, but they also customize cakes and take special orders.
