A MESSAGE FROM YOUR FAVE TÍA-TITA Hi love,
I just wanted to send you my love in this moment. This week has been heavy and exhaustingly frustrating and I want to hold space for you to take a breath.
Try your best to take care of yourself with the basics of nourishment and rest as you're able. To continue to right the wrongs around us, we need you well.

❤️❤️❤️

Hey friends!
Hope y'all got some rest & rejuvenation over the weekend. I know I felt all the love from new catering clients to connecting with some of you fab people in person at pop-ups!
Excited to see y'all again this weekend!

I did also want to share that up until recently, the one-women show life of a business owner & artist was taking a toll on me. Not because I don't love what I do and the opportunities y'all provide, but because I was caught up DEEP in the trap of comparison. How are people staying "booked & blessed", how am I trying so hard and still struggling to reach my people, what's wrong with my food, what's wrong with ME?
These are the questions an artist has to conquer when what's so close to your heart is also your business. I realize these thoughts may always float around but that never makes them truths.
The truths are I ignored and trampled my boundaries to the point of exhaustion in order to prove how hard of a worker I am. To prove how deserving I am- all to be someone who can just pay my bills. When you're exhausted trying to survive, it's damn hard to let creativity thrive. It's even harder to see that comparison to another is an impossible standard when you will always be on your own unique trajectory. Your story, your life & your why will never be exactly the same as another creator so why expect for the journey of opportunity to be. I'm feeling that so intensely. All I've ever truly wanted was to just make badass art I love & connect with awesome people.
So, I am now trying to set hard boundaries with my time, my rest, my health, my loved ones, & creating just for me first.
I'm sharing so as you see shifts in menu, schedules, & fulfillment options, the changes are efforts to make for a happier baker, artist, & lasting business.
Love you & thanks for reading this novel!
Much love,
Minda ❤️

So grateful I got to cater for @dallastheatercenter opening night of The Sound of Music with mini pop tarts, mini conchas & chocolate chip muffins.
Honestly the longest week of my life! I'm thankful for everyone who continues to give me wonderful opportunities like this by sharing my treats with friends and family, sharing my menus, visiting pop-ups, & tagging me in your posts!
Thank you for your support while I figure out this wild & beautiful world as a small business owner ❤️✨

Merienda Monster will be popping up at the HAG for the very first time ever this Saturday night!!! Their menu is 🙀🤯💯!!
Thank you to the North Texas Honda Dealers for engaging with the Oak Cliff community they passed our 75 horchatas and pastries from Merienda Monster. Merienda had a sold out pop-up. Thank you everyone that stopped in this weekend to support and shop local. Thank you to Crecer Dallas for the gifts. @DJEZEddyD even stopped by and grabbed some mezcal truffles and his horchata.
Another amazing day with our pop-up newsroom at MLK Food Park III! We met new neighbors, greeted a lot of familiar faces, and heard from community residents what they thought of the event — “more of this!” was the overwhelming response. Thanks to Dee Powell, the mastermind and beating heart behind this Black and Brown collective, for including us again as a partner. Thanks also to the Dallas Free Press team — Jesse Jines, Shardae White and the inimitable Anita Crethers — for the surveys and sign-ups, and to the vendors who accepted our $5 tokens.

Come anytime until 4 pm today to 2929 MLK Blvd and get some lunch, a treat, home decor and gift products.

Spent the morning in Dallas with one of our favorite clients and friends, Merienda Monster!
It’s a pop-up for pop tarts! Raise your hand if you’ve supported a cottage baker who started their biz in the last year 🙋🏻‍♀️ Merienda Monster is one of those pop-up bakeries you don’t wanna miss. Minda Rocha, the gal behind the vegan and Filipino shop, is a former Sugar Fang baker on a mission to spread love through dessert. I got my hands on the Sweet Treat Yo’self Box, a collection of Ube treats with a portion of the proceeds going to Stop AAPI Hate. Which one would you grab first?
Great to see you two again at Peaberry Coffee OC
I love to see a happy client use their logo I made for them... especially in cool ways like this! Check out these cute Merienda Monster masks!
When you get a dessert that matches your hair: 💜🥧🤩 • • My love for bright, fun colors definitely doesn’t stop at my hair and clothes, but also my sweet treats! 😋🌈🤗 I feel so fortunate to live in Dallas where there are so many amazing vegan chefs that are not only baking up COLORFUL and unique vegan goodies but ALSO extending their sweet gifts to great causes. 💕 • • These amazing Ube Handpies by Merienda Monster were apart of her contribution to #bakersagainstracism where she did a raffle (which I was happy to be one of the lucky winners 🥳) and donated all of the proceeds to Black Trans Protesters Emergency Fund. 🙏🏾🌈 I also picked up some RAINBOW COSMIC BROWNIES made by the lovely The Baking Fairy as apart of her contribution to #bakersagainstracism where she donated her proceeds to BLk lives matter. 😌💖 • • It’s pretty incredible to have such a win/win situation where the Dallas local vegans (or you know, just anyone in the Dallas area with a sweet tooth 😉🦷) gets to enjoy some treats + give to a cause that will truly make a difference in the #blacklivesmatter movement. 💌 • • Now I am SUGARED UP and fueled for great change ahead!! 👏🤩👊
