I just love desserts and after hearing from my good friend Patty Taboada about her new red velvet love affair at this 5 month old meek cupcakery in Escario, I apprised myself to fleet and grab some of those cupcakes at Sweet Little Things. Proprietors PJ Lee, who by the way was my college classmate, with wife Sandra baked and gave out the Sweet Little Things cupcakes to friends during the holidays, and soon enough got orders through SMS from the same people who they were giving the SLT cupcakes as gifts. The demand grew even more which made them decide to open a modest 15 seater cupcakery last year of November.
Sandra shared with iLuvCebu.com that their cupcakes are made from fresh and high grade ingredients. And every product that their selling at Sweet Little Things are products that are loved both by PJ and her, from their own recipe cupcakes to the choice of coffee and beverages sold at the store. The store’s interior design and furnitures are designed by PJ’s architect and furniture designer siblings making the store a reflection of the Lee family’s taste, a good one that is.
Now let’s meet the cupcakes at Sweet Little Things! Pj and Sandra currently has 10 Sweet Little Things cupcake varieties. Cinful Apple , The Red Velvet, Flourless Mudpie, Blueberry Crumble, Monkey Business, Triple Chocolate, Lemon Poppyseed, Cappuccino, Cookies & Cream and Strawberries ‘N Cream.
Dense crust yet moist and chewy on the inside, that’s how I would describe SLT’s Flourless Mudpie. It’s not that sweet so you’d still have an appetite to taste one or two more of their cupcakes on one sitting.
This I would say is my SLT’s favorite. The lively sunny citrusy smack on the soft cake with the cream topping and the poppyseeds’ sparse crunch is sublime! And did I mention that they use real lemon zest for the SLT’s Lemon Poppyseed?
And after having 2 cupcakes (Flourless Mudpie and Lemon Poppyseed) at Sweet Little Things, I just have to grab 6 other flavors of SLT cupcakes to go. Go grab some at 158php for a box of 3 and 298php for a box of 6!
