Inspired by my heritage & my love for baking, I started incorporating my favorite Filipino flavors such as ube, mango, and buko pandan into desserts like cookies, French Macarons and cakes. Working with Filipino Food & Bakery in 2014, I was able to focus on this niche and offer my goods to the public. People who tried my goods began inquiring about larger orders, and the rest was history!
FILIPINO-INSPIRED CAKES, COOKIES & FRENCH MACARONS
Decorated Buttercream Ube Cakes– A special celebration calls for a decorated cake that not only looks amazing, but tastes amazing as well! My ube cakes are made with real ube halaya (baked in), and filled with your choice of two of the following: ube buttercream, vanilla buttercream, chopped macapuno (young coconut strings), and ube jam. The buttercream on the outside can be in different custom colors and textures such as: smooth, rustic, or an extra charge for ruffles, petals, or rosettes. Starting at $65 for a basic 6″ single-tier (16 servings). Add $2 per French Macaron for an elegant decorating touch!
Crinkle Cookies are soft & flavorful cookies rolled in powdered sugar and baked until perfectly chewy. These are scratch-baked and made from my original recipe! My signature flavors are ube purple yam & buko pandan coconut. Red velvet & Lemon also available. A favor mix of 36 crinkle cookies on a ready-to-serve platter is $30.
