For 23 years now, Sue’s Cake Gallery (SCG) remains to be one of the leading providers of customized cakes in Iloilo City. What started with 15 employees expanded to a full blown commissary, one cake and party shop, and two cake and coffee bars with almost 60 employees after it was bought by power couple Wilda Wuthrich Usi and Elmer de Jose Usi in 2011.
On one fine evening, we were invited for a visit at SCG’s Robinson’s Jaro Branch. As per usual, our table was chaotic. These saucers with different cakes were passed from one side of the table to the other. Down to the last bite of each flavor, we were chatting rowdily about how delectable and gorgeous each slice of cake was.
The owners’ goal is always to exceed the expectations of their clients. Through their creativity and innovation, they expanded their client base and brought their cakes to the A/B market. Sue’s Cakes are oftentimes found at the centerpiece of a wedding reception, a debut, baptism, and they also provide for various premiere hotels in the city.
Sue’s Cake prides in their homemade traditional way of baking. Mrs. Wilda and her sister makes all of the main ingredients from scratch before it goes to the commissary. Their bestsellers are their Black Midnight Chocolcate Cake and Buko Pie.
When Sue’s Cake Gallery opened its first branch, they also offered coffee and they did not settle for less. They use 100% Arabica beans which are procured from a local bean farm in Benguet. These beans are then roasted locally at La Roasteria of Iloilo and brewed fresh for the Ilonggo coffee lovers.
The Millionaire’s Cake
I ended 2016 with a penchant for cakes and pastries. I developed a sweet tooth throughout the year. I’d say I loved a lot from the few dozens I have tasted and it’s safe to say that this is one of the best. It’s beautiful on the outside and gratifying on the inside. This is probably so satisfying for the OCs to look at. Check how neat the cake is! My most favorite part is that thick layer of dark chocolate icing. Ooooh so sinful and so luscious.
