Reality tends to go off its rocker when the holidays come around. Yet however convinced you become that December is a month set aside for the enjoyment of children and the distress of adults, there’s one constant that remains: more than gifts, the material glue that keeps the Christmas spirit together is food.
Whether it’s the decadent leche flan that only gets made for noche buena, or the lechon reserved for extended family gatherings, food is Christmas’ infallible ally.
In full embrace of this thinking, this December Cupcakes by Sonja has brought back it’s limited edition Christmas collection.
From end to end, the catalog is an unapologetic lure for the family sweet tooth. It starts simple with cake and cupcake toppers in the in the image of snowmen and Santa Claus, but finishes strong with the likes of a rich, six-layer vanilla chiffon cake that’s filled and covered with marshmallow icing and sprinkles. For those looking for something extra special, there is the Souther Pecan Pie, an incredibly rich pie crust filled with a heaping of pecan nuts covered in sweet maple syrup.
As hectic as the holidays can get, food will always be the saving grace. And family, of course.
Cupcakes by Sonja is located in 2/F New Glorietta Mall, Ayala Center, Makati, and G/F Serendra Piazza, 11th Ave, Taguig.
