We all need a little (or in my case, a lot!) of sweetness in our lives.
Those little sugary treats can sometimes spell the difference between a disappointingly sad or a sweetly satisfying end to a day. (Foodies, don’t ever underestimate the power of a good dessert!)
That’s what you can expect from Cucina ni Sheng: classic desserts made with love. Every weekend, you can anticipate honest-to-goodness treats to sate your sweet tooth.
This little cucina is run by mompreneur Sheng Magcalas left her corporate job a few years ago to take care of her newborn. Aside from her daily routine of house chores and child care tasks, she also took up baking as a hobby and would sometimes gift her creations to friends and family.
However, the recent quarantine heightened her anxiety. Seeking a distraction, she tried out different recipes and expanded her baking repertoire. After three months of trial and error, she grew confident of her baking skills, enough to venture into online selling.
And thus, Cucina ni Sheng came to be.
Sheng takes pride in her little home-based operation: her cucina’s offerings are not outrageous nor avant-garde, just classic desserts that are tasty and affordable, such as:
Calamansi Muffins (Php180/6 pieces). The tangy taste of freshly squeezed calamansi juice adds a zesty, palate-tickling highlight to this fluffy and buttery muffin. It’s perfect when taking a break and leisurely enjoying a cup of your favorite coffee.
Decadent Chocolate Cake (Php400). A choco-holic’s dream come true! This tin-can dessert is made with super moist chocolate cake topped with a thick layer of creamy chocolate ganache and dusted with cocoa powder. Cap a fabulous dinner with this show-stopping dessert and you’ve got yourself a memorable meal.
So this weekend, treat yourself to something sweet from Cucina ni Sheng. You deserve it.
