Easter Cupcake Decorating at Vanilla Cafe

Posted on

This year, Jael and I spent Easter at Vanilla Cafe Trinoma for an Easter Cupcake Decorating activity. Vanilla Cafe is one of the prettiest places I’ve seen. The pastels, cute decor and candied smell of sweets from cupcakes to cake slices overwhelms the senses and my eyes!

I told Jael all about the activity and he was excited to decorate his very own cupcake. It was Vanilla Cafe’s first event and the accommodating and cheerful staff were looking forward to it as well.

Like all Vanilla Cafe branches, Trinoma has a well decorated restaurant. The dainty set up was too pretty for words.

The Easter Cupcake Decorating event included a toque, apron, DIY cupcake kit that included a cupcake, piping bags filled with assorted frosting, assorted toppers with 1 Easter Sunday topper and a Kiddie Meal (spaghetti bolognese, fried chicken and 1 glass of juice). For Php599, that was definitely a steal.

As we were waiting for it to start I just had to capture the prettiness around me. I could tell that it was a well though out concept with details and personal touches here and there.

Jael was a bit under the weather but he was looking forward to creating his design. He looked so adorable in his blue toque and apron.

Jael got to work on his cupcake decorating skills garnishing with sprinkles and choosing from cute Easter themed toppers.

The final result! Jael couldn’t resist eating some of the toppings especially the gummy bears.

Other kids also had a fun time decorating their cupcakes.

Vanilla Cafe Food Choices

Bacon Carbonara (Php248)

Each bite was heaven for me. Pasta being my most favorite food topped with bits of bacon was delicious with every bite. Jael tried it and I told him that it was so good. He said the sweetest thing! “I like your pasta better mom.” <3

Kiddie Meal

Crunchy fried chicken and spaghetti bolognese is the perfect kiddie meal combo.

Naughty Nutella Frappe (Php128)

The Nutella frappe had the distinct Nutella flavor but it also had a coffee flavor. I had ordered this for Jael but he found it too strong for his tastebuds so I gladly drank it.

Strawberry Iced Tea & Calamansi Juice
