Only recently that I found out that the Baker's Dozen at the Power Plant mall is back on again. Since September, actually, so it's probably not news to a lot of people. The Baker's Dozen is held every weekend at Level P1, Concourse Area Center Aisles, which lights up beautifully with showcases of delectable baked delights. The good news is, it runs until December.
The last time I was there, I got myself a box of a dozen pretty and colorful macarons from Empire. I got White Chocolate, Chocolate, Mocha, Cookies&Cream, Pistachio, and Triple Chocolate. Other available flavors are Lemon, Blueberry, Strawberry, Hazelnut, Caramel, and Mango Chocolate. While every flavor is wonderful, the Cookies&Cream is my favorite among the bunch.
Aside from macarons, Empire also offers Cheesecake Balls. I have never seen or heard about cheesecake balls so it was pretty new to me. Flavors are Original Chocolate, Black&White, Strawberry White Chocolate, Walnut Chunk, Mocha, Sprinkles, Almond Chunk, Chocolate Chip, Caramel, Cookies&Cream. Unfortunately, I was not able to get some of them but they look cute and I must admit, the concept does sound yummy. Definitely next time I go there.
A good thing to know about Empire is that they do party, wedding, and corporate giveaways. And they deliver for free if you're getting at least 15 boxes. (Php150 delivery fee for Quezon City, Mandaluyong, San Juan, Makati, Taguig, and Pasay areas, if you want less than 15 boxes delivered.)
Empire contact numbers: (0917) 8861190; (02)4671995. Look for Georgia
