When it comes to sweet things, I have my go-to places. I have my favorite cookie place, my favorite cake place, my favorite brownie place… you get the picture. Never did I imagine that I would find a place where I could find all of my favorite sweets in it – and with them all being really delicious to boot! Say hello to Baked by Mon.
Baked by Mon was a childhood dream of a kid who loves to cook. He started with simple fried food at a young age and made his way to basic Filipino delicacies in his college years. Since he had a sweet tooth, this kid (who had already entered the corporate world) thought: “Why not try to make pastries and cakes, too?” What started as a hobby of baking cakes and pastries for his friends eventually turned into the online shop that I am raving about today – made for people with a sweet tooth like him.
When I tried the sweets by Baked by Mon, I really thought I had gone to sweets heaven. They offer a wide range of products from pastries to cupcakes to customized cakes. And let me just say it again: THEY. ARE. ALL. DELICIOUS.
Here are some of my favorites:
Brownies (Php160 for a box of 6)
As you can see, they don’t scrimp on the chocolate chips!
Portuguese Egg Tarts (Php300 for a box of 6)
My daughter fell in love with these at first bite!
Red Velvet Cupcakes
They were almost too pretty to eat!
Just look at those huge chunks of chocolate! These were our ultimate favorite of the bunch!!!
Ube Macapuno Custard Cake (Php1,000)

Mon shares that he takes several aspects into consideration when choosing the products that he bakes. First, he bakes products that he knows he can perfect. He prioritizes people’s happiness, after all, so he focuses on both taste and aesthetics. “If it’s pleasing to the eye, then people will be drawn to taste it and it will start the repurchase process,” he explains. Well, that’s definitely not something he needs to worry about because everything looks absolutely gorgeous.
Even the packaging in itself will make you feel oh-so-special. It’s so pretty!
Mon adds that he also considers commonly bought products, and injects a different twist to some products to have a variety of choices. He even offers the trending ube cheese pandesal!
Baked by Mon delivers to places in Metro Manila, as well as to nearby provinces like Bulacan and Laguna. To ensure the freshness of their products, Baked by Mon makes sure that they bake everything a day before delivery if not on the delivery day itself. This ensures that their products arrive as freshly baked as possible.
