Monde Summer Mamon-it-Yourself: Delightful Activity to do with the Kids

I always thought that decorating cupcakes is a wonderful activity for kids.  It rolls two interests in one - baking and arts.  It was a delight to know that Monde came up with Mamon-it-Yourself mamons.  It's a brilliant idea to let the kids saunter into the world of baking less the intimidation of a full blown baking activity and instead indulge in the charm of decorating.

Monde Mamon Bloggers Kit

My daughter and I giddily clapped along when she saw this delightful kit.  Wouldn't anybody?:-)

Yesterday, my daughter and I had loads of fun decorating the Monde Special Mamons.  My daughter, a baking afficionado and artist rolled into one, was in her element while she was decorating the mamons.  I, the ever, reluctant baker and artist was surprised to find myself finding the activity so easy and fun.

Monde Mamon Ensaymada

Our first foray was the Mamon Ensaymada.  We followed the 3-step recipe that came with the kit and voila!  Mamon Ensaymada:-)  Check out the recipe here.

Then, my daughter whipped up her simple butter cream icing (softened butter, powdered sugar and milk) and we whipped out a colorful star!  To decorate the pretty cream icing, use an icing/piping bag together with a decorating tip.  We used the disposable piping bag Monde gave us but we also have a reusable one.  You can buy the piping bag and decorating tip in baking supplies stores or even in department stores.

Monde mamon ala mode

I couldn't resist making the Mamon ala Mode.  I topped Vanilla Ice Cream on the Monde Special Mocha Mamon (the mamon also comes in Classic flavor) and sprinkled it with pounded chocolate cookie and chocolate chips to achieve the wonderful ala Mode look.  Also try mixing all-purpose-cream with some 3-in-1 coffee mix (I used Capuccino flavor), sprinkle it with some powdered sugar, keep in the freezer for awhile then top it on your Monde Special Mamon!  Sarap!

Eating Monde Mamon

My little boy insisted he help out too!  He ate up the ensaymada while I gobbled up the Mamon ala Mode.

My daughter was unstoppable.  She had to finish decorating all mamons in the kit!:-)

It was a whole afternoon of Mamon-it-Yourself activity, happiness!

  1. This is a very nice activity for parents like us and our kids. Aside from the fact that my daughter also loves eating monde’s mamon, we can try being creative too by decorating this with my daughters favorite ingredients for more fun and of course bonding. =)

    • Hi Cris! My daughter and I had so much fun decorating the monde mamons:-) I used to think decorating cupcakes is a bit difficult but it’s so easy lang pala. It was so amusing to see my daughter so absorbed in the activity, her creative juices working full time. When you make a cupcake, you can share your design at #MamonItYourself in Instagram, your daughter would be thrilled to see her creation immortalized on the net:-)

    • Hi Cris! I know, me too:-) It’s a very good idea that we can use pala home ingredients plus the affordable and yummy, Monde Mamon. Hehe before the campaign I never put the 2 together, pwede pala:-)

  2. favorite namin yan monde mamon! di katulad ng iba, yung monde siksik sya di lang puro hangin. Good thing pwede na pala mag decorate using their mamon. Magandang bonding. Mukhang you had fun decorating din with your kids ms. lilian. =)

    • Hi Mary Joy! Yes we had so much fun! Lalo na yung daughter ko kasi she likes baking and arts so perfect activity kasi hitting two birds with one stone sya:-) When your daughter is mga 2 na, you can start doing it with her:-)

      • we’ll definitely try that too pag malaki laki na si baby A. Ang sarap talaga mag bonding ng ganyan!Since wala ako alam sa kusina, kaya ko naman siguro mag decorate ng cupcake, hehe! =)

        • Haha! Pareho tayo Joy, wala akong alam sa kusina. But now, I try once in awhile to cook. Husband ko kasi laki sa mommy who cooks so he kinda looks for that from me. I like cooking up pasta dishes kasi madali:-)
