Project Wheelchair: 12-Course Lechon Degustation Charity Dinner @PepitasKitchen

Their passion project started with Dedet and her two daughters, Lileya and Liyora, raising funds to donate wheelchairs as a legacy to their sister Lauren.

With a humble beginning of selling ButterBeer and Chocolate Happiness (Hot Choco) in school fairs, turned into a beautiful full packed 12-course Lechon Degustation at Manila Hotel's Champagne Room, with successfully raising funds for 150 wheelchairs (P3,500 per wheelchair) for the less fortunate people with disabilities.

CHOCO LIQUOR CAKES: Best Chocolate Cake Gift this Christmas! @MaricarReyesPoon #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

Choco Liquor Cake is the product child of celebrity couple Richard Poon and Maricar Reyes. Their cakes are made from high-quality chocolate bonbons with a small kick of red wine for flavor.

This heavenly decadent chocolate cake won the hearts of our foodies, with its very rich and moist chocolatey goodness. We like that the quantity of wine had just the right amount bittersweet aftertaste, without it overpowering the cake.
