OVER the past years, it has been known that Filipinos not only enjoy consuming food, but are also avid chefs and bakers when it comes to cooking for their loved ones.

Tinapayan Festival, a local bakeshop in Manila, offering soft and sweet baked products for over 40 years, is no stranger to that. While the bakeshop’s patrons come back for its best sellers sucha s ensaimada, cheese rolls, eclairs, napoleones and its slew of over 200 baked products, nothing stops them from sharing and recreating family recipes in order that more Filipinos can enjoy delectable treats made from the heart.

“It was always a dream of ours to share what we have not only in the knowledge and skills in baking but as well as the family recipes we have grown to love. Our customers are very dear to us and our growth, so it is just right to share products that are inspired by our own family recipes and memories,” Tinapayan Festival Founder and General Manager Lucito Chavez said.

In 2020, Tinapayan Festival offered for the first time its bestselling Queen’s Chocolate Cake, which was launched at a time when Mother’s Day was just around the corner. It is made with the finest Couverture chocolate and the highest quality cream. The team behind Tinapayan Festival answered a growing need for celebratory cakes during Mother’s Day when the Philippines underwent its first lockdown back in 2020.
