Discovery Country Suites’ Restaurant Verbena unveils the Naked Cake

Discovery Country Suites in Tagaytay brings in one of the hottest pastry trends to the Philippines, in the form of the “Naked Cake.” No need to blush at this seemingly immodest-sounding dessert. Simply put, a Naked Cake has the frosting applied in between the cake tiers instead of covering the outside. Making this change gives your guests a conversation piece, and more.

Decorated with garden-fresh flowers, fruits and alternate layers of thick icing, the Naked Cake becomes the centerpiece of your event—perhaps a dream wedding, an anniversary, birthday or even a corporate milestone. 

After receiving massive buzz in the U.S., particularly from brides who were looking for that “polished-but-unfinished rustic look,” Discovery Country Suites’ Resident Manager and Pastry Chef Rhea SyCip now offers the Naked Cake to Filipinoswho are looking for a unique touch for their gatherings.

“Discovery Country Suites is one of the first bed and breakfasts of its caliber in Tagaytay. Because of this heritage, we have become known as the venue of choice for those looking for a country-style venue.  The Naked Cake is the perfect dessert to embody the same principles of what a bed and breakfast should offer, which are uniqueness and attention to detail,”shared Chef Rhea.

Naked Cakes come with extra bonuses. 

First, since the cake isn’t covered in fondant or icing and so can dry out faster, the baker must make it on the day of the event, giving you and your guests a freshly-baked pastry. 

Second, since there will be no frosting to cover say, overcooked or underdone sections of pastry, you know you will get a perfectly made cake! Naked Cakes put the baker’s expertise to the test, and the final output demands nothing short of baking precision.

Discovery Country Suites currently offers different flavors of naked cakes, namely: 
  1. Signature Hummingbird cake made with only the freshest Tagaytay pineapples and bananas
  2. Red Velvet
  3. Chocolate
  4. Strawberry Shortcake
  5. Butter Pound Cake
