Rockwell Ultimate Taste Test Winner #25:
BAKED BY ANITA
84 foodies rated 5- Awesome! I would recommend it!
120 foodies rated 4- I love it!
105 foodies rated 3- We had a good time.
50 foodies rated 2- It is OK.
10 foodies rated 1- Thanks, but it could be better.
Baked by Anita is dubbed as the “Queen of the Market” in Mercato Centrale. An interesting tidbit: She was the only vendor mentioned in the movie “No Other Woman” when Cristine Reyes (in the final scene in Mercato Centrale) said, “Hi, Anita” as she passed by her booth.
Anita continuously surprises us with different gourmet combinations of her bite-sized cupcakes. I just love the balsamic vinegar reduction flavor with fresh strawberries. With her unique concoctions, it won’t be long before Anita becomes a legendary cupcake baker in Manila. 🙂
In Rockwell’s UTT, she introduced her mini-cupcake with maple roasted bacon with maple buttercream. A lot of foodies raved about this bacon cupcake. Congratulations to Baked by Anita!
