Right before the Holy Week started, I was able to visit a
new cupcake place in town called B.C.C.
At first, you’d think it referred to
the school but really, it stands for Bacolod Cupcake Café Inc.
As a newly opened café, BCC Inc. is still in its soft
opening stage and this gave me reason to try it out. After a 2-year hiatus on
my previous food blog, Eats Trixie, I decided to pursue my love for eating +
writing and start a new one. With BCC as a new spot, I make my debut.
Personally speaking, I’m not too keen on cupcakes. I do have
a sweet tooth but after living in Manila for 6 years and my late Dad’s
diabetes, I have cut down on sugary snacks. However, I do have an occasional
craving that I need to satisfy. And when it comes to cupcakes, all it takes is
an episode of DC Cupcakes or Cupcake Wars.
Back in Manila, I already have a favorite cupcake store and
it’s called Gigi’s. For me, they
have the best Red Velvet Cupcakes
ever. Their only branch is in Eastwood and for someone living in Makati, I had
to be patient until my next craving.
When I visited BCC Inc., I decided to try their Carrot Topped with Pineapple Cream Cheese.
It was something new and intriguing so I decided to try it out.

were with me during the visit and we were all able to try a little of
something: Chocolate, Salted Caramel, and the Low Fat Vanilla.

With the summer heat, I particularly enjoyed the fact that
the café did not have too many customers yet. It gave me more time to enjoy the
cool air and the free Wi-fi.
I liked my order but I was only able to eat half because I
thought it was too sweet for me already. It might be because I was drinking
their Iced White Chocolate along
with the cupcake.

I already made a decision on what my next cupcake order
would be... Black Velvet, No Fat Chocolate, Bibingka, and the Ferrero.

Mmmm… now I want a cupcake…
B.C.C. currently has a summer promo. From March 25-May 31,
2013, they have a Buy One Get One promo for their blended drinks. You just need
