Cozying up to Larcy's Cupcakery

Valrhona Triple Chocolate Cupcake
Larcy's Cupcakery is a cozy hangout place in BF that specializes in- you guessed it- cupcakes. Aside from cupcakes though, Larcy's also serve cafe drinks and savory meals.

Parking is usually full whenever I pass by and I am not too crazy about going through the hassle of waiting for a spot to free up so I cannot say that I frequent the place. One very late Saturday night though, when I was with some friends and we were hankering for dessert after our dinner at Songkran, there was one parking space that seemed to have been waiting for us. So there we parked and set off to this wonderland of sweets.

I love these pretty lightbulbs!
The interiors of Larcy's bear all the hallmarks of a cupcake shop. Pastel colors (think pink!), whimsical furniture, cutesy light fixtures and decorative items, it's a place that a "manly man" would not be caught dead hanging out in, except, maybe, when he is with his girlfriend or his little daughter.

Even on a late night, Larcy's counter is full of customers waiting in line to place their orders, and the turnover rate of customers per table is impressively high. We stayed there for about an hour and we'd seen the table beside us seat three different sets of customers.

On top of that, the place isn't small, even having an outdoor terrace on the second floor accommodating several more tables. Although, the terrace is where the air conditioning units are so it can get pretty warm up there.

Larcy's staff urged us to try the Pink Velvet (Php65), their signature cupcake, so that made its way to our table. Other cupcakes we've tried are the Banana Cream Cheese (Php70) and Valrhona Triple Chocolate. As for drinks, we've had the Hot Mocha, Larcy's Freeze in Vanilla (Php150), and Hot Frozen Choco Velvet.

Hot Frozen Choco Velvet
I liked the Hot Frozen Choco Velvet the first time I tried it. On this visit though, the drink seemed it could use a longer whir in the blender, there were too many ice crystals in it and hardly felt like velvet in my mouth. But I'm chalking it up to a busted blender or perhaps a too-tired crew, something that can be fixed, and would still order it the next time. (I really enjoy drinking from that cute mason jar mug, too.)

Larcy's Cupcakery is located at 178 Aguirre Street, B.F. Homes, Paranaque City. Contact Larcy's at (02)799-4174.
