HAVE YOU DISCOVERED ESTREL’S CARAMEL CAKS? IF NOT, YOU MIGHT want to check it out because Estrel’s has been around since 1946—unbeaten in the made-to-order cake business.

Its best seller is the caramel chiffon cake, which you can order at P485 for an 8”x12” cake without filling and P585 for one of the same size with filling. The caramel cake isn’t too sweet, makes you crave for more, and leaves a light feeling in the stomach. It’s a perfect gift for people who have everything. Other choices for icing aside from caramel are marshmallow, chocolate, and butter. Estrel’s also has a new products that are just as irresistible: freshly baked chocolate chip cookies  (P700 for 35 pieces of large cookies or 70 pieces of medium-size cookies); apple squares (P150 for 12 pieces); and leche flan (P180).

Estrel’s is run by Alice Ylagan Navarro and her daughters Joy and Gina. The shop is named after its founder, Alice's sister Estrel Ylagan , who died in 1989. The cake shop stands on the same spot where it was put up in 1946: at the corner of Scout Limbaga and Scout Tobias Streets, Barangay Laging Handa, Quezon City.

Orders should be placed one day in advance on ordinary days, and much earlier during holidays.
