Get ube macapuno, yema cheesecake cups from this Manila bakery
These homemade New York-style cheesecake cups are available in eight other flavors, including blueberry, strawberry, Oreo, KitKat, and matcha

If you’re looking to enjoy the classic cheesecake in both familiar and unique flavors, check out local bakery Hi, Cakes! Dessert House and their freshly-baked, homemade cheesecake cups.

Hi, Cakes!’ premium cheesecakes feature a tangy, creamy New-York style cheesecake base and a sweet, crumbly graham crust, available in 10 flavors and in adorable solo cups.

Among their best-selling flavors is the Pinoy favorite ube macapuno, made with a smooth cheesecake batter that’s mixed in with fresh ube halaya. It’s topped with creamy ube jam and firm, sweet macapuno strings – a treat for fans of the purple yam.

Another familiar favorite is the Yema flavor, which is their cheesecake topped with a generous swirl of smooth yema custard, made with eggs, sugar, and butter.

Fan of fruity flavors? Try out the Blueberry and Strawberry Cheesecakes, topped with tart puree jams and berries; or the Mango Chocolate, topped with dark chocolate leaves and fresh mangoes.

Their Salted Caramel flavor is also a good choice; the silky caramel topping is not too sweet, thanks to the sea salt it’s topped with. Fans of green tea may enjoy the earthy Matcha flavor, made with a strong matcha cheesecake base that’s topped with whipped cream, a sweet white chocolate flower, and dusted with real green tea powder.

Hi! Cakes also offers two sweet flavors for the chocoholics: Oreo and KitKat. The Oreo flavor is made with a cookies and cream crust and cheesecake base, topped with fluffy whipped cream and mini Oreos. The Kitkat is also made of the same crust and base, but is drizzled with a rich chocolate syrup and crunchy pieces of KitKat.

You also can’t go wrong with the classic – Hi! Cakes also offers their original New York Cheesecake flavor. Can’t decide which flavor to get? Try them all in one beautiful assorted box, and you’re guaranteed to find at least one (or two) flavors you like.

Hi! Cakes’ cheesecake cups come in a box of two (P180), assorted box of four (P325), assorted box of six (P450), and assorted box of 12 (P875). They’re good for up to six days stored in the refrigerator, or for up to six weeks in the freezer.

Hi! Cakes is located in Sampaloc, Manila. They require a one-two day lead time for orders. To place your orders, you can message them on Instagram. –
