The Weekend Pattiserie wants us to eat our Manila Bay white "Dolomite" sands frustrations


Wazzup Pilipinas!

"Here’s a cake inspired by the infamous white sand project on Manila Baywalk, complete with a toy backhoe. The cake is topped with crushed Oreos for the black sand and crushed vanilla cookies for the dolomite."

This one is not fake or synthetic. It's real creativity!

The Cavite-based The Weekend Patisserie bakeshop has designed a one-of-a-kind cake inspired by the Manila Bay white "Dolomite" sand, and it has gone viral among netizens because they can't help but relate especially the DDS who are now cursing the bakeshop and accusing them of being political. Several media outfits have also picked up the story to join the bandwagon.

It has gained captions like "Dolomite sand in a cake?" and "Self expression is a piece of cake!", "Manila Bay-ke ang peg?" and "Don't worry, this cake doesn't cost P389 million."

The Weekend P√Ętisserie's "Dolomite Cake" made a statement with the literal icing on the cake reading “It really hurtz...P389-M na 'yon ghorl???," using crushed vanilla cookies and Oreos for the Dolomite and black sand respectively.”

And unlike the Dolomite beach that costs millions, the cookies and cream-flavored cake with buttercream icing only cost around P800.

This is what I love about Filipinos. Creativity mixed with humor and sarcasm keeps us anchored to sanity. Instead of going crazy towards rock bottom, we manage to become resilient enough to laugh at our situation by creating memes out of our frustrations.

But as expected, not everyone is awed by it especially the supporters of this administration as they bombard the articles with hate post like the one below:


People have been saying "I told you so" even before Benny Antiporda of the DENR reasoned out that it was not a case of "wash out but wash in" as dark sand, trash and water hyacinths have been continuously littering the shores of their prized fake sands that the administration has promoted as beneficial to our mental health.

I guess the situation at this portion of Manila Bay only proves this government has gone mental.

But we have the cake from The Weekend Pattiserie to help us get through with the disappointment.

“It was just for fun and it was our way to express our frustrations with what’s happening right now in a witty way!” the shop said.
