Cupcakes by Sonja Opens New Doors for a Sweet Cause

“Each branch is a unique place of cupcake delight.” –Sonja Ocampo, Cupcakes by Sonja owner.

On October 24, Cupcakes by Sonja, opened another cupcake haven at the East Wing of Shangri-la Plaza Mall in Mandaluyong City. This new home for sweet treats is so far, the biggest store branch they ever had.

As soon as I entered Cupcakes by Sonja’s newest home, it gave me that cozy feeling from home. It is a great place for family to get together for dessert, or even a small tea party with your girlfriends.

“With Serendra as its original home and new branches in Glorietta and Power Plant Mall, Cupcakes by Sonja opens its latest and biggest store to date at the new wing of Shangri-la Plaza Mall. Apart from offering our delicious desserts to walk-in customers, it will also be the hub for customized dessert orders in the area,” says Anne Gonzalez, Cupcakes by Sonja partner.

Since Cupcakes by Sonja is now bigger in size, they are now accommodating family gatherings and corporate events.

I love their interiors with hints of love and nostalgia!

“The design of the store in Serendra was really inspired by New York and all the cupcake stores I visited then. We then refreshed and updated the look of the Glorietta store, made it a little bit more grown-up. It’s still nostalgic, but it’s more current at the same time. It now has more of an industrial vibe, partnered with a sustainable style. We were drawn to native, recycled, and re-purposed materials, so we used upcycled elements such as salvaged wood, antique bricks, and corrugated container metal sheets,” reveals Cupcakes Mademoiselle Sonja Ocampo.

2013 is such a sweet year for Cupcakes for Sonja because this year, they opened a few branches that serve their yummy cupcakes treats. Adding up to the sweet roster of their pioneer/flagship store in Serendra, they are also now serving cupcakes in Glorietta, Rockwell, and now in Shangri-la. Cupcakes by Sonja Shangrila-la Plaza Mall is their 4th branch.

A moment on the lips, forever on the hips, but I’d still have these yummy sweet treats! 🙂

My daughter and I were very honored to be a part of this joyous and momentous occasion for Cupcakes by Sonja. The opening of Cupcakes by Sonja in Shangri-la Plaza Mall has a “School” theme for a great reason.

Check out these very cute centerpieces, which I later on found out made by my friend Anne Mateo of Ant’s Pocket.

I’ve personally knows Red Velvet Cupcakes first at Cupcakes by Sonja as early as 2006 if I’m not mistaken. My favorite sweet treat from this shop would still be the Berry Strawberry Delight Cheesecake Cupcake.

In this newest Cupcakes by Sonja’s branch, the children have a special spot wherein they could do some activities like reading a book or doing some coloring. I love the little rocking chairs they have for the children.

This is my daughter N as she enjoys reading a book at the Cupcakes by Sonja Shangri-la Plaza Mall branch.

Next to the children’s area at their shop is Cupcakes by Sonja’s open kitchen. I just loved watching these pastry chefs decorate these cupcakes.
