Satisfy sweet cravings at Dessert Caravan

It was a holiday yesterday as Muslim Filipinos marked Eid al-Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice. But I, being a member of the media dishing out news everyday, still had to go to work. As I usually do on holidays, I tagged along my youngest child to the office and together, we discovered a new place to satisfy our sweet tooth - a cake shop called Dessert Caravan. It's on the second floor of Wilcon City on Visayas Ave. in Quezon City, quite near my place of work. On display were different kinds of cupcakes, mini cheesecakes and some muffins, 
plus a few slices of chocolate cake and tiramisu. 
Our orders:

Black Forest Cupcake, P50.
Mango Cheesecake, P65.
Blueberry Cheesecake, P65.
Brewed coffee, P75.
The cupcake at left is Apple and Banana with Dulce de Leche, P50.

 I had the Mango Cheesecake and my son, the Blueberry Cheesecake. I was supposed to eat the Black Forest Cupcake, too; my taste buds wanted me to! But my mind got the better of me, firm that I should eat just one if I were to avoid an elevated blood sugar. The Mango Cheesecake was yummy! It was sweet, oh yes, but only a little. Curiously and interestingly, it was also a bit salty, thus all the more delicious! I tasted my son's Blueberry Cheesecake and I loved its smooth texture and subtle sweetness. To wash them down, I had a cup of brewed coffee and my son, hot chocolate (which I forgot to take a shot of). 
Before we were done, one of my friends at work texted me asking me to buy her three cupcakes so I decided to give her my Black Forest and ordered another Mango Cheesecake plus an Apple & Banana with Dulce de Leche cupcake. She took them home but I'm quite sure she loved them. I think you will, too! By the way, Dessert Caravan makes cakes upon order and they have beautiful designs and themes to choose from. But I must warn you, if you want to eat here, don't come hungry because all they serve are desserts and hot and cold drinks. In short, come only for dessert and have your meal beforehand. 
Don't expect a fancy setting, too, as the place is simple and quite small (just three tables!).
Well, happy eating, folks!
