When I learned that my former classmate Jo Iris De Ramos went all out with her sweets biz, I got excited! I first saw her creations on her personal Facebook account and I couldn’t help commending her! Then I learned that she got no formal schooling and no cake decorating tools (she just used their very own kitchen knives in carving fondant)–wooow! She really has “it”! So when I was tasked with the cake and cupcakes in the wedding of a friend, I messaged Jo Iris about five days before the wedding to order her cake and cupcakes. I just told her the motif, and I left everything to her (that’s how much I trusted her–alam n’yo naman kung gaano ako kapakialamera normally ‘diba?) So how did the cake and cupcakes looked like? Was I disappointed? Let’s take a look:
How can I be disappointed with such lovely creation? And then when I bit into it, mmmm! The cake was moist, rich, and has just the right amount of sweetness. Thing with cake artists and pastry makers is that they need to have both the artistry to decorate, and the taste buds to make the cake actually taste good (not just LOOK good). It’s usually just one or the other, but I vouch that Iris has both! Take a look at Iris’ other mouthwatering creations:
Impressive eh? With these creations, it is hard to believe that Iris only started October last year when she decided to make a birthday cake for her niece and her mom’s joint birthday celebration She then posted the pictures on her FB and her aunt in the U.S. and her sister both encouraged her to make it a business. And then in November last year, Rainbow Confections was born.
Right now, Rainbow Confections offers customized artisan cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, and cookies. Iris says that the price of her cakes may be a tad more expensive than regular ones on the market (because they are customized thus takes a longer period of time to make), but in my opinion they are NOT! When I compared her price to that of other cake artists’ customized cakes, Iris’ cakes are definitely cheaper!
Graduations, recognition, and moving-up ceremonies are around the corner…make the bida‘s of these momentous events feel even more special, give them a Rainbow Confections treat!
Tell me what you think!
