CAKE CUPS. Kumori releases Presidentiables Cake Cups 2022.


Have your cake and vote for it, too! The bakeshop's new cake cup covers feature Robredo, Lacson, Pacquiao, Marcos, and Moreno.

MANILA, Philippines – At Kumori Japanese Bakery, you can have your cake… and vote for it, too? The local bakeshop is gearing up for the May elections with the release of its Presidentiables Cake Cups 2022, featuring the faces of five presidential candidates.


We all know that choosing the right candidate is never a piece of cake. But you can at least show your support for your presidential choice by choosing from Kumori’s five cake cup covers: there’s Vice President Leni Robredo, Senator Ping Lacson, Senator Manny Pacquiao, former senator Ferdinand Marcos Jr., and Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

Kumori also offers five new four-layer, cake cup flavors, such as the Okinawa Milk Tea Cup with a crumble base, spongecake, Serenitea Okinawa Milk Tea mousse, and whipped cream with choco crunchies.
