The folks in Benguet really take their Strawberry Festival seriously. To commemorate the special event, they decided to bake a replica of the giant strawberry cake which bagged them a place in The Guinness World Record back in 2004. It took them three days to finish the pastry using over Php60,000 for the ingredients. The slicing started early at 11am last March 23 with the first 50 slices served for free. The rest of the cake was sold at only Php20 per slice. It must have been every cake lover’s dream!

Just a couple of months ago, Cara Mia’s fan favorite, the Strawberry Shortcake, returned to the shelves for a limited time. The new version contains more layers and strawberries inside but to the shock of many, the famous dessert shop announced its last call for the pastry for those who still want to try it. It’s almost gone and it might be a while before it returns so if you want to get a taste of this wonderful creation, drop by one of their branches now!
