MANILA -- Curious as to who makes those "super sarap" ensaymadas Batangas Governor Vilma Santos gave to television host and actress Kris Aquino?
The pastries, whose accompanying dedication card triggered a flurry of negative comments because of the spelling and grammatical errors of Santos, came from Cunanan's Ensaymada.
This was confirmed to ABS-CBNnews.com by an executive close to Aquino.
Cunanan's Ensaymada is considered among the yummiest in town, making it to the top 10 list of best ensaymadas in Metro Manila of website Spot.ph.
Created by Maricel Cunanan, her home-baked ensaymadas are topped with grated queso de bola and sugar, then brushed with butter. Its distinguishing feature is the wax paper uniquely folded in the shape of a tent.
Spot.ph described Cunanan's ensaymadas as "softer and fluffier" than most of those on the list. The article also noted that very light with just the right amount of sweetness.
Unfortunately, the famous ensaymadas are only available for order and pick-up. Since it first opened for business, Cunanan's has yet to open a standalone bakeshop-cafe.
