Alba's Tarta de Santa Teresa
One of the Inquirer’s 20 Yummiest Commercially-Baked Cakes.
Sponge cake filled and iced with custard, encased with almond slivers and topped with yema balls.
It wasn’t as good as I envisioned it to be. I thought it would be creamy and sweet but it wasn’t. It was tart and tangy just like a cheesecake. Also, the yema balls on top tasted more of pastillas than yema but still with that tanginess present. While the sponge cake was soft and smooth and delicious.
Overall, it was a good cake but not worthy of the P120 price.
