Enjoy this and other lip-smacking cakes, pastries, and other specialty treats from Red Ribbon stores nationwide.
Comfort food lifts the spirit. It’s familiar and nostalgic. It’s food that simply satisfies.
All of us have our own list of comfort food, and in every list, there is always chocolate cake. Always. Just what makes it a comfort food?
Is it the chocolate? Science offers an explanation about this magical ingredient that Aztecs used to worship. Chocolate contains tryptophan and phenylethylamine, chemicals that stimulate secretion of hormones like endorphins. These produce feelings of elation, attraction, and pleasure. How wise those Aztecs were.
Is it the way it was prepared? Comfort food is not necessarily hard to prepare but one of the reasons they are special was the effort it took to make them. Chocolate cake is made with layer after layer of goodness. We taste the love that went into the preparation – that’s what makes us feel better.
Is it the familiarity? We grew up with our comfort food. They are the food “like mom used to make” or Tita brings every time there is a family reunion.
Chocolate cake may not have been served often, but memories of eating it bring a warm feeling because of its family ties.
Whatever the inexplicable connection, we love chocolate cake and it loves us back.
Red Ribbon whipped up a version of the classic chocolate cake with its new Chocolate Fudge Cake. This sure comfort food list-topper is made with its moist chocolate pound cake layered with luscious chocolate fudge filling and then smothered with velvety chocolate icing. It’s the kind that will make you savor every bite, scrape off the last bit of crumb and icing on the plate, and then lick the fork clean.
Every time you need a slice of warm embrace, a back rub, or a reassuring word, you know you can easily get a Chocolate Fudge Cake in all Red Ribbon Stores nationwide – now that’s a tremendous comfort in itself.
Chocolate Fudge Cake is available in regular size for P495.00 and junior size for only P295.00.

After CCA, she added me up on FB. Told me we have a common friend on FB by the name of Edwin Francia (who was my long time friend from Bayantel), turned out they are cousins.
I got a chance to talk with her during Parentin.TV's First Year Anniversary. I then invited her to join me on Mommy Academy come July 10, 2010. . She is busy, I am busy so we didn't have the time to chat even online.After Mommy Academy event, Electrolux (in cooperation with Mommy Academy) were looking for moms who'd like to join their Wok-a-holics Cook off Challenge. My teammate was supposed to be my husband, due to unforeseen events, my husband wasn't able to join me. Meanwhile, Jenny Roxas told her we're joining a cooking challenge, ask her if she wants to join too. I told Jenny to tell her to call me. When she called and asked me if she can join the cooking challenge I said yes. I didn't know then she's good at cooking. I just told her we'll be teammates since my husband backed-out. Long story short...we won 1st Place at the Wok-a-holics Cook off Challenge. I am no good in cooking, as I've said in my previous blog, I can only cook beef steak, chicken curry and afritada...but because of her, I won the following: microwave oven, table top electric griller, blender, and a 4 burner gas range all from Electrolux.
(Visiting her at her welcoming abode in preparation for Electrolux Finals)
(I particularly like this chair, her husband brought from Sri Lanka)
(With her youngest son, Enzo)
(Naiinggit ako kay Enzo, so I slept...while she prepares everything)I believe that any person who comes along has something to give or share to enrich our lives. I am not pertaining to the material things mentioned above (but those are a BIG PLUS!). What I truly appreciate from meeting her is her ability to tell me straight the traits I should mellow on. Not very many people are frank enough to voice out their opinion or view on somebody. I am thankful to her. She has shown me that honesty will forever be a good policy.
The person I am thankful for: LOURDES VINDOLLO-LABII, loyal, faithful and supportive wife to Jerry, loving and caring mom to Luis and Enzo, kind daughter to her parents, understanding eldest sister to her siblings, a dependable friend to many...a very good cook, my Electrolux Wok-a-holics partner.
