2) Workshop

Key ServiceCarrot Cheesecake
AddressThe Grid Powerplant Mall R2 Rockwell Center, Makati, Philippines
Phone0917 707 7459
Operating HoursDaily 11:00 AM – 9:00 PM

Though carrot cake is typically considered a more humble dessert, it can also be dressed up to fit a more sophisticated palate. Workshop’s Carrot Cheesecake is the perfect example of how delicious and elegant this classic cake can be. Rather than the dense, moist carrot cake you’re used to eating, this confectionary leans more towards an entremet. It has rich layers of a carrot-walnut cake full of spices like cinnamon, cheesecake, and white chocolate mousse–all given a deep flavor with a milk chocolate sable crust.

Key Differentiators:

  • Rich and dense carrot-walnut cake
  • Cinnamon-tinged cheesecake
  • White chocolate mousse

Customer’s Review:

I love this carrot cake! It has a perfect balance between carrots, cream cheese, and walnuts. The white chocolate mousse adds an extra layer of sweetness that really makes it stand out from the rest. The service is always great, and the presentation is beautiful. Highly recommend!
