Yonzon, an artist who studied at the Philippine High School for the Arts, helped decorate the cake. He is also the bakery’s “latte artist,” painting Pacquiao portraits upon request.

The Yonzons first planned to auction their cake for charity, but quickly realized that moving the weighty confection would be an ordeal. Instead, they will feed it to customers. “If Pacquiao wins, we’ll eat it to celebrate, but if he loses, we’ll stuff ourselves with chocolate cake to make us feel better,” Yonzon said, before the match began.
