The cupcake craze in the country was started when a quaint little bakery opened in Serendra, giving Pinoys a new take on this delectable dessert. Cupcakes by Sonja really is the front runner in the cupcake world, being the one to introduce flavors such as the Red Velvet and Cookie Dough. A few years later, Cupcakes by Sonja now has 4 branches around the metro, with the fourth one in my neck of the woods, East Wing of Shangri La Mall! I love how homey and cozy this branch feels like. Z and I will surely be regulars here!
At yesterday’s opening, Cupcakes by Sonja announced a new product: Cake Cups! They describe this product as “all of the flavors we couldn’t quite put in a cupcake”. The Cake Cups come in 3 delicious flavors: Tres Leches with Strawberries, Coffee Caramel Biscoff Crunch and Milk Chocolate and Hazelnut Praline. I tried all three and they were all oh-so-good!
What’s great about these Cake Cups is the fact that when you order one, you’re supporting the feeding programs of Move.org. This truly is a #SweetCause! It is during the opening that the special partnership of Cupcakes by Sonja and Move.org was announced. The goal is to raise funds within the next 3 months in order to construct a kitchen for Move.org’s feeding program. So, mark your calendars as these Cake Cups go on sale on November 6 at all Cupcakes by Sonja branches. Be one in the journey of spreading #SweetCause to create a positive change for the future of our country, one cake at a time!
Molding Optimism and Values Education (Move.org) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to build schools and provide care for the underprivileged children in the Navotas and Malabon area. Started by Alex Eduque (who is just 21!!!) to complete the initiatives of Habitat for Humanity Philippines, Move.org will be the one to implement early childhood education and development programs in these communities. Such was the theme at yesterday’s opening! Take a look at these school-themed treats:
