Hey, guys! I hope you’re enjoying your weekend. I am here to post my brother’s birthday cake two weeks ago. Yes I know, this is a long overdue post. We bought this cake for Php 600 or $12 from a passionate baker. She’s a first-time entrep and we’d like to support her so we’ve decided to buy this strawberry-flavored cake from her. Do you support small business owners, too?

She needs to perfect her icing. Yes, I support small businesses. Two bakers I promoted on fb are now big time pastry entrepeneurs.

That's true. She needs to perfect her icing, though. The taste was just okay but I am glad we were able to help.

Yes, I have started doing it after COVID-19 But the product must be worth too... No compromise on the quality.. Was the cake yum?

i agree. but sometimes it's hit and miss. you're encouraged by the positive comments, but when you finally order, it's just so-so. but then, at least our curiosity was satisfied and we can cross it off our list.

I think everybody would love to support small businesses but also they need to perfect their products for continuous support

I do. Always try to purchase from them if I can. I am hoping that even a small amount I spend will help to boost back the economy.

Yes, if there is anything I would want or need, I will choose to seek for it from my local business first. If I could not get it, then I would end up sourcing for it in a MNC
