Sweet Treats

Wednesday, November 9, 2011


I am not a fan of sweets but I have a very sweet spot for Sophie's Mom's sweet treats. My first taste of Sophie's Mom's treats was during the 1st Blogger's United Bazaar last May 2011. I got the Strawberries & Cream mochi ice cream and I must say, it got me at first bite (more about my mochi ice cream post HERE). But Sophie's Mom is not just about mochis. They also offer a variety of cookies, cupcakes, pastries and bread. About 3 weeks ago, I received two boxes filled with savory sweet creations (and le tummy couldn't be happier). Take a look below to find out what was inside those boxes.

Inside one of the boxes are 6 pieces of decadent Red Velvet cupcakes. To be honest, Red Velvet is my least favorite flavor for cakes (well, that and Banan too). I just don't like cheese mixed with anything sweet (and this includes cheess in puto or bibingka). But Sophie's Mom's Red Velvet cupcake is a whole different story. The cream cheese topping is not too "cheesy" (which works for me!) and inside the cupcake are chocolate chiips (which for me, counters the cream cheese taste a bit).

Moving on to the other box...


Inside is a mix of different pastries and cookies: Spanish bread, Oreo stookies, Nutella sweet buns and White Chocolate Macadamia cookies. The Spanish bread was a bit of a surprise. I don't like Spanish bread in general. There's something about its taste which doesn't sit well on me. But Sophie's Mom's Spanish bread is different. It has a sweet creamy filling which tastes like pastillas. I give extra points to Sophie's Mom for coming up with a new version of Spanish bread! The small buns (with sesame seeds) that you see in the photos above are the Nutella buns. This is a wee bit like the local pandesal but with a chocolate filling inside. Very tasty and yummy! As for the cookies, unfortunately, I wasn't able to taste any of them because my officemates ate all of them! Haha!

If you want to order any of these treats from Sophie's Mom, just visit their shop at 8760 Santol St., San Antonio Village, 1203 Makati Philippines (see sketch map below). You can also reach S.M. via landline (4048165) or fax (8564849).
