Hi! I am Clarenz Alcantara. During the week, I am a regular employee of a New Zealand based IT Company. On weekends, I am a New Gen Baker who specializes in baking various cupcake flavors using MAYA Celebrations by Sharon Party Cupcake Mix, and just an oven toaster!
I started baking upon discovering Sharon Party Cupcake Mix. This was back in November 2016, almost two years ago. My first cupcakes were Strawberry-filled Cupcakes.
I was a frustrated baker for a long time. I’ve always wanted to bake, but didn’t think I could unless I took formal lessons. One day, I saw Sharon Party Cupcake Mix at a grocery, and was intrigued by it. I decided to experiment with my oven toaster, and found the right temperature settings and timing needed to bake simply delicious cupcakes. I have since perfected several flavors using the Sharon Cupcake Mix as the base mix.
Depending on my mood, I bake once a week, mainly for my daughter, who is my best customer.
My signature recipe is the Calamansi Cupcake, while my most challenging and memorable recipe to date was a Banana Butterscotch with Banana Cream Frosting Cupcake Tower. I made this for my daughter’s 12th Birthday.
My number one baking tip? Use MAYA Celebrations by Sharon Party Cupcake Mix. This changed my life!
