Meet the Queen of Ube Treats

Olga Manansala is a local baker from Elk Grove, and the owner of Baked By Olga.

“I started baking as a hobby in 2008. Infusing standard baking staples with the more exotic, I create flavors transcending all ethnicities;  available in a plethora of ube (purple yam), coconut, and standard varieties.

I am very creative and loves art so much, that with baking I can express and create what I want to create. I feel freedom and be just “me”. Baking makes me happy and baked goodies make everyone happy. 

Spreading joy is extremely powerful.”
