Cupcakes by Sonja - not a two thumbs-up for me!

We had a couple of hours before the Ultimate Taste Test starts. So we went around High Street. Truly a splendid time with my little princess. =)

First stop - Cupcakes by Sonja. I have read a lot of comments about their Cupcakes, good and bad. So i thought it was good timing that we can finally taste it.

The store itself is interesting, I liked the cupcakes bouquet displayed on top of the shelves. Pretty yellow cupcakes in a pot, cute! =) My little girl was awed by the little cakes in different colors but just chose to have the mini ones. Maybe because we just baked a few batches last week for a friend's daughter's 2nd birthday. Green, orange and yellow Vanilla Sunshine, priced at P55 for the three. A little pricey I think, since I remember selling a box of 12 for these mini versions for only P80. And that was just last year! Or did I price it too low?

Anyway, the seats inside are occupied, so we went out to get a bite of the cakes. My daughter's first comment - "too sweet!" So I took a bite and yes, is indeed sweet. I ended up removing the frosting for her to just eat the cupcake itself. The cake was moist enough but I think it lacks a bit of vanilla flavor. "Your cupcakes are way better, Mommy!", she added. Aw, my sweet, loyal daughter. =) Good thing I didn't decide to get a couple big ones. Or maybe that tastes better. Maybe. I looked around and they have these on display- Banana Monkey Cream Pie, Mocha Motion, Mint Condition, Chocolate Surprise, and Red Velvet Vixen. Their cupcakes range from P55 to around P95 each, depending on the flavor. I'm not sure if I'm going to go back. Or if I am, might try the bigger ones.
