Upon entering the bazaar, friendly event organizers filled me in on the details of the event. There are over twenty food stalls that feature Alaska Crema in their creations and as a blogger I get to sample them all and rate their Alaska Crema Creations in my scorecard. Scorecards from different bloggers will be tallied and winners will be announced at the end of the event.

Wow, sample over twenty selections of holiday desserts and dishes?! Let’s get the party started!
First up, Alchemy with their Chocolate Macaron with Alaska chocolate Mousse. A bit crispy for my liking but chocolate-y nonetheless.
How cute is this lechon cake from Nothing but C? Yes, it is a cake and it’s so Pinoy! I love it! Very creative. Classic.
Cakes & Bakes has this Chocolate Mousse Meringue with Alaska Crema. Reminds me of the French classic dessert, Concorde.
I went around the bazaar as leisurely as I can seeing that there are lots of families, friends and food afficionados alike excitedly exploring the event.
Oh wait! There are cupcakes from Forever Cupcakes! My type of dessert! Love their custom cupcakes on the shelf as well.
Bettina Carlos was also at the event but I was too shy to ask her if I can have my picture taken with her. Bettina is the creator of Nutella Rocks winner of the Anton’s Ultimate Taste Test 8.0. For the event, Bettina has the Dulce de Leche Pecan Cheesecake Cups. It’s a bit sweet given that it’s dulce de leche. I have a feeling it’s bet served chilled.
Special mention goes to Malagos Chocolates – a locally produced chocolate products from Davao. Yes, locally produced! Wow, I wish I can go to Davao and see how they make these.
My top three choices (in no particular order) for the event actually surprised me because two of my top choices are actually savory ones. Yes, Alaska Crema is not just for desserts, it actually works even for savory dishes.
(1) First up, the 5P’s Burger from The Serving Spoon Manila. The burger is just right, moist, and as succulent as it can be.
The Serving Spoon Manila is even generous enough to share their recipe.
(3) Next up, Contemporary Bite Cuisine with their Escargot Chowder. I’d like to believe that they are the rebel in the bunch for serving a dish with an exotic ingredient. But I think it worked in their favor. I absolutely adore how they creatively used Alaska Crema for this soup.
(3) And lastly, Nothing but C‘s Yema Cake. Ahhh…. the cake that captured my heart that day. Fluffy and moist, perfectly baked, not too sweet. Need I say more?
Thanks to Nuffnang PH for inviting me to the event!
