Cupcakes by Sonja's 10084️ All I can say is, this is a must to try. Their Red Velvet's are so good. The cream cheese frosting blends perfectly with their moist cupcake. But then again, I am disappointed that they have increased their price when the size diminished a little. Their smores cupcake is another great buy! Don't forget to grab their Christmas cupcake during the Holidays. And, ugh. I love their bars. It's pretty pricey, but the blondie bars. Worth it!! 128525128525 They do have cakes now; red velvet, naked velvet and rainbow. Plus this croissant-cupcake thing which is good too! Everything is good. I'm just sad with the inflation changes. So yeah. 128524

Finally tried this Crupcake- it's a hybrid of croissant and cupcake! A good friend of mine gave this box for christmas 128525128536 flakey and soft texture of a croissant filled with cream and toppings depending on the flavor with a cupcake size. It's perfect pair with a cup of coffee or milk. Flavors are banana nutella, green tea, pecan pie and peanut butter speculoos!🖕🏻 Thank you again Charu Z 128139128523

I am a big fan of cupcakes, cakes and anything sweet. It's been a while since I visited a cupcake shop. I often taste good cupcakes from other shops but this one is THE BEST!

I ordered Red Velvet Vixen, Pistachio Berries n Cream and Choco Cream Cheese Swirl. Their cupcakes are moist, full of flavors and when you're done eating, you'll beg for more 🤗 I will definitely come back and try other flavors!

We needed to rest our weary feet so we plopped down at Sonja's and I ordered what seemed to me the least calorific in their display case -- a cupparon. It's a mini-cupcake topped with a macaron. I figured since it's so small, it wouldn't hurt to order 3, the red velvet, salted caramel, and hazelnut. (This is why my diet never progresses.128530) I liked the hazelnut best and the red velvet the least, which is somehow surprising given that Sonja's is known for its red velvet cupcake.

Service was just ok. I don't know if they're forbidden to leave the counter, but it would have been nice had they offered to refill our water. Anyway, since they didn't seem keen on going to the tables, I cleaned up after we ate and returned our tray to them.

On a final note, I'm all for creativity but sometimes I think these hybrid desserts don't really "create" a new product with their own distinct flavor and texture. Then again, maybe I'm overthinking this. Still, I found the cupparon less easy to handle than if I were eating just a macaron or a mini-cupcake, either of which I would have picked up with my thumb and forefinger and popped in my mouth. A cupparon however is a little taller and does not easily fit in my mouth. Hence, the need for a fork to break it down. So this is where it gets a little messy because a macaron is delicate with a shell that does not yield into just two neat portions, but breaks into pieces. Maybe I'm a tad OC, but I wanted to ask whoever created this -- how do you eat this with dignity?

Right: Peppermint Patty, a favorite for my daughter... It was good chocolate cupcake with that pink minty frosting that didn't taste like toothpaste... I get why she likes it.

Left: I ordered the slice of red velvet layered with devil's food chocolate cake. I forgot what it's called. It had cream cheese frosting around it. But this was served room temperature. I think I would have liked it a bit cooler. The cream cheese was a bit melted. The cake was also a bit dry. Couldn't figure out which one. But it's expected since I got the slice that was the last in the display so maybe it had been standing alone for long.

I should have just gone for Elvis cupcake as I first wanted to do so... 128532

Had our favorite cupcakes for merienda today. We just never get tired of eating their cupcakes. What's good about this store is that they always have new flavors to try. Each cupcake costs around 100-150 each.

Flashback Friday.

2 years ago I got to try their branch. I was in a mood for a cupcake adventure and make no mistake I was a bit excited upon seeing their open store. Any interior design that is not common to see just wows me 128561 From their lights with hanging whisks to their colored palette chairs and wooden tables. Just a perfect setting to have my cupcake fix. 128076

So I was sure of trying their red velvet back then but I felt I wanna try out other flavors as well which is more lighter than the red velvet. Then I was struck at a bunch of cupcakes at the bottom with colorful frosting on top and went with it as well which is Vanilla Sunshine.9728

I had to go first with their Red Velvet. I love their cream cheese frosting on top but the cupcake itself back then was a bit dry for me. Good thing there was enough frosting on top just so to finish the cupcake itself. Hope they have improved it by now.

Next was the Vanilla Sunshine. The frosting on top was sweet. Just the right amount of sweetness and love love their vanilla cupcake.

Maybe I'll get to try them again within this year and make a comparison. 9786️ Here's to more cupcake adventures. 10084

To be honest, I came here for a socket because the cd signing session of my boys is at 6pm and it's just 12. So after eating at mcdo, i noticed there's a socket on one of the tables here. So i just tried to order an iced hazelnut latte because it kinda suits my last money for the day. So yeah. I've heard many good comments about their cupcakes, telling it's sweet and yummy. But what happened to this latte? I know it's not a cup cake but it was too sweet like they put too many sugar. I actually tasted sugar sweet, and the taste of coffee is absent. But anyway, thanks for the socket and the good reads inside the scout magazine. Awesome service, though. 128513

After having lunch, my friend and I craved for something sweet so we decided to go to Cupcakes by Sonja since it was just near the restaurant where we had our lunch.

I chose the Mocha Motion cupcake to satisfy my craving. It's a chocolate cupcake with mocha buttercream and chocolate sprinkles on top. It was so good! It was moist and the sweetness level was just right. 128522

Here's a trivia: "Sonja" in Cupcakes by Sonja is actually pronounced as it is spelled: "Son-ja". All along I've been saying it as, "Son-ya". Haha!

After our fulfilling and tummy-busting dinner at Tim Ho Wan, my friend and I wanted to have some dessert before we end the night. Even though we're already full, we still insisted in getting one because life without dessert is just..boring! And so we settled for Cupcakes by Sonja to try some other cupcakes.

I tried one of their bestselling cupcakes, that is the Elvis cupcake (Pho 115,00). That's Peanut butter cream, few bits of Reese's, caramelized bananas, and caramel on top of the whipped cream then lying on a chewy oreo crust that stands as the base layer of the cupcake. Can you imagine how good it is? It's definitely better than their own version of red velvet cupcake, at least, in my opinion.

My friend tried the Red velvet and thought it was okay, but nothing remarkable. He still preferred Cupcake Lab's and the one I already forgot. 128513

Let's see if the others were as good as the others on my next visit.

I'm here at Glorietta so early and battery almost dying! So i passed by coffee shops and no seats with sockets we're available. I passed by cupcakes by sonja's and they had sockets, yay! I got their pairing meal, which was a cupcake then a drink. I got a blue vanilla sunshine and lemonade. Lemonade was refreshing, but I'm still looking for more *bang* when it comes to sourness of the lemon and the cupcake i got had a super hard topper, feels like it's been in the fridge for a while now. The exposed part of the cupcake was a bit hard, not the soft and fluffy kind of sonja's cupcakes I know. I have tried a freshly made vanilla sunshine one time and this is nothing close to the cupcake's fluffyness and softness.Guess I got an almost bad batch today? Boo!

Yee haw! I had some cupcakes and cappuccino while waiting for our dinner last Saturday. Ah, who cares? 9996

Sonja's probably my favorite cupcake and quick go to place. I remember that time when they only have a branch in Serendra, I'd go to all the way from Mandaluyong just to have some luscious cupcakes.

What I had was Mocha Motion. I liked it but the frosting was kind of salty, I found it a little bit off. And unlike the other cupcakes I tried, it's not moist.

This flavor was okay but probably not one of those 'babalik-balikan' ones.

You just can't resist bacon. You just can't. 128514

I was on my way home when I thought of dropping by to grab something to drink. Having second thoughts of getting milk tea or this. I chose this! 128513 My curious self was in for the odd drink they have. It's bacon and waffle. Yep! Bacon! Who doesn't love bacon? I was still hesitant to try it because I still asked what's better. But my love for bacon still prevails. lol. And my strong desire too. 128513 I was just quick to prepare. I had it take out.

The bacon and waffle was surprisingly good! 128077128077

The first sip was hard because the milk was thick but in a good thing. I like milkshakes like that. Thick and creamy. 128077 The whipped cream was camouflaging the creamy mixture but you can distinguish which from which. The bacon bits stand as contrasting taste with the sweet milkshake. Tho I find the bacon a little chewy. I don't know if crunchy bacon is better but I guess you don't want oil mixing in your drink. 128514

I wish the cake itself has lemon flavor, not just the frosting. Still giving Sonja four stars for the blueberry ginger drink (not pictured), which I find soothing for my itchy throat. (Yes, I still eat sweets even if my throat is complaining!)
