Food Chronicles: Enjoying the sweet life with Sweet D's Cakes and Pastries

Sweet D's Cakes and Pastries is a home business started by Pastry Chef Cha Cleofas in 2010. Fresh from the Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Culinary School in Bangkok, Thailand, Chef Cha wasted no time when she got back home in Manila. She immediately started churning out delectable concoctions in her kitchen for a test clientele of family and friends. I was one of the lucky few to sample her delicious treats, much to the chagrin of my waistline. A few months later, Sweet D's was born. Cha's five-year old niece came up with the name Sweet D's -- short for Sweet Desserts. 

For the 2011 Christmas Holidays, Sweet D's has launched three mouth-watering cakes that are sure to test any dieter's conviction. All cakes and pastries are homemade and baked to-order, so you are always guaranteed of the quality and freshness of each batch.

Sweet D's indulgent offerings:

Sweet D's Kahlua Chocolate Cake: "a perfect combination of dark chocolate and kahlua, sinful... but worth it!"
Red Velvet With Fresh Fruits and Cream Cheese Filling: It doesn't get any more festive than this!
White Chocolate and Oreo Cheesecake: Creamiest cheesecake base I've ever tried!  Together with the generous Oreo pieces and white chocolate, it's smooth and crunchy at the same time.

For an easy sweet-tooth fix, Chef Cha also makes scrumptious cookies: Chunky Peanut Butter and Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Chunky Peanut Butter Cookies -- "baked with dark chocolates and chunky peanut butter."  One is never enough!
Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookies -- Cookies with generous chunks of premium dark chocolate and roasted cashews. This is my all-time fave!

These treats are perfect for parties and as gifts.
