We definitely did not miss the official opening of Sophie's Mom Backery and Confectionary last Saturday, after having been to their store during its soft opening phase.
As expected, there were more pastries to drool from and it's the first time I've seen the cupcakes which are all tempting to try!
This is me in my typical weekend get-up: Columbia shirt, Columbia capri pants and my Fit Flops! I'm carrying my Balenciaga Bag.
Now let's get to know the cupcakes:
The Cookie Dough Cupcakes will definitely be the kids' favorite! Caramel-sweet frosting in cookie-flavored cupcake.
The ultimate temptation! Chocolate Creme Brulee Cupcakes! It's something new and it's sooo goood!
Bread and cookies are also available aside from the cupcakes. Among my favorites are the sourdough bread and french bread. Sophie's Mom also bakes her own ensaymadas.
The little transparent square boxes contain the truffle mochis and we bought the Nutella variety to try. It was good! I love the texture of the mochi and it's not too sweet (which I prefer).
To complete the store's vintage look, art paints are on display but some (like the one below) are on sale as well.
The Mochi Ice Cream were also available that day so we took home their strawberry mochi to try. We regret having bought only one because it was really good! This is going to be their best seller, hands down, so I suggest you get your own ration already because they get sold out fast! Other great flavors available (aside from our favorite strawberry) are the banoffie and frozen brazo (de mercedes) mochis.
Sophie's Mom and Confectionary is located at Unit 111, 8760 Residences, Santol cor Aranga Sts, San Antonio Village, Makati. For orders, they may be reached at 4048165 or 8564849 (fax).
