Hey friends,
I have some big life updates happening. So, I have started & kept up a whole business during a pandemic, found my community of amazing and inspiring, big-hearted people, and learned what my boundaries and needs are as an individual. Now clear of the space I need to take care of my mental & physical wellness, I have decided to no longer bake full-time.
So what does this mean for Merienda Monster you might ask? I fully intend on continuing pop-ups after I get settled into another daytime job so this definitely isn't the end by any means. Just a different season with a little more space so I can continue to give love to myself and baking without being in survival mode.
Grateful for you all & appreciate your endless support and understanding ❤️
pop-up is still happening this Saturday 9am-1pm before my break & hope to see some of y'all there 💕

Bringing all the comfort in a soft sweet bread is ube pandesal ❤️❤️❤️ The ube halaya or purple yam jam flavor reminds me of roasted marshmallow. Smooth and silky center with lightly nutty notes in the background. A treat I can never deny myself.

TW: body image & colonization

Snack time can be anytime if you're living right!
But seriously, the truth is this tradition, like many, has roots in colonization but now we get to do it our way.
Removing shame is the first step in decolonizing snack time & food in general. Fear of food due to hatred of our bodies is a tool of oppression to brown and black bodies.
In my book, just like there's no such thing as "good" or "bad" food, there's no right or wrong way to treat yourself if you're nourished and take joy in the experience.
Eat well & be well today, friends. Even that simple act can be a form of reclamation & resistance ❤️.

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. 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.

We’ll see you again in November!

We’re here at the second round of the with Do Right by the Streets and SO MANY amazing vendors! Come anytime until 4 pm today to 2929 MLK Blvd and get some lunch, a treat, home decor and gift products. Stop by to see Ms. Anita to sign up for text messages and let us know what you think of the food park, and we’ll give you a token worth $5 at any vendor booth.

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 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 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 movement. 💌


Now I am SUGARED UP and fueled for great change ahead!! 👏🤩👊
