Our first stop in the Bonifacio Global City Food Tour was Sonja's Cupcakes at Serendra. In another food tour held by Spot.ph some years ago, we were also treated to these awesomely sweet but a little bit pricey cupcakes made by Sonja, who have had her training in baking in the United States. We were served (L-R,T-B in the photos above) Chocolate Overload - rich moist Valrhona chocolate cupcake filled with creamy ganache, and topped with velvety chocolate cream; Vanilla Sunshine - classic and fluffy yellow cupcake topped with either vanilla or chocolate buttercream.
Their popular Red Velvet Vixen - traditional southern cupcake made with Belgian cocoa and cream cheese icing; My personal favorite, Melt-In-Your-Mouth Flourless Chocolate Cupcake - Dense Valrhona flourless chocolate with rich velvety texture dissolved in your mouth with pure sublime flavor; and one of the less-sweet, more appealing flavors of Sonja, Choco Cream Pie - Rich, luscious, Belgian chocolate cream in Oreo crust and topped with mouthful of whipped cream and sprinkled with Oreo bits.
Alongside Cupcakes by Sonja's, Miss Dessert, a dessert establishment right to the right of Sonja's Cupcakes when you're facing it, sampled their sweets to the participants as well. Ultimate Brownie, Butter Cake and Lemon Squares were their treats for the afternoon :)
The next posts will feature the main course, a break from the main course, and pre-dinner meals. It was truly a yummy and filling event.
