I'm talking about sugar addiction! When the dreaded sweet tooth comes knocking, well, it's definitely an itch you just have to scratch.
So while in Serendra one fine sunny Saturday morning, I finally found myself with enough time to drop by Cupcakes by Sonja to figure out why other sweet tooth sufferers like me are so obsessed with them.
I love period decor, especially those that have a rustic, French, summer cottage feel and the Cupcakes by Sonja store has definitely whetted my visual appetite. Every corner was so inspiring, so chi-chi, so cute!

Wonderful and well-trained staff will gladly assist you in placing your orders. Although their menu listed down quite a number, there were just a few on display, and so I chose from that lot.
|Guess what's inside.|
|Such pretty colors. =)|
I went home with samples of 3 flavors:
Vanilla Sunshine, which I bought for Php55 each;
|Vanilla Sunshin (Php55)|
Chocolate Surprise for Php68;
|Chocolate Surprise (Php68)|
And since it was the Little One's first month birthday, a Peppermint Patty (Php68) just for her.
Let me start off by saying that these cupcakes are ok. I mean they taste good but are a little dense. Quite heavy on the stomach actually, but good. I love the Chocolate Surprise! =)
The icing was a first for me, as I am used to creamy frostings, but with Sonja's, it's a little granular in texture (sort of reminds me of those Dunkin Donut cream fillings) and a tad too sweet for my taste.
All in all, not a bad product, but I think I'll save this for those very special occasions. =)
