We got introduced to Symphony of Flavors through Jason of WheninManila.com. I actually stayed away from it because it was too rich, too sweet and too tempting -- even just by looking at it.
I must admit I thought it would not make the 3.3 cut but it did very well at 3.7. A lot of people like it because it is especially made for those people who like a sweet, rich, overloaded cake. I must agree with one foodie that this would be perfectly paired with strong, black coffee (no sugar needed).
Congratulations to Symphony of Flavors! Their Cookie Monster Cheesecake is quite unique and it would stand out among other usual cakes.

The Symphony of Flavors Bakeshop Story by Margie Tan-Caw
Symphony of Flavors Bakeshop started as a home-based business nine years ago. It was originally just a hobby of the owners, a mother-daughter team. After a successful fund-raising project back when I was in high school, my mom and I were inspired to make this a tandem business. Our products started from developing old-time favorites that the family were craving for such as coconut macaroons, chocolate chip cookies, revel bars, cheese cupcakes and boat tarts. These were the items in our first product list back in Christmas of 2000. Since then, there was no more looking back, we kept on creating new products to offer each Christmas Season. The home-made goodness of each product that comes out of our kitchen is guaranteed, because up until now, baking is done by mom or me, no mass production and no scrimping on ingredients.
For this year, we would like to offer something that would offer a burst of texture in every bite; hence, the Cookie Monster Cheesecake. Every bite will give you velvety smoothness, creaminess and with a little chewiness and crunchiness. Enjoy!
