Cakes are more than just a mere dessert of choice at ceremonial occasions like weddings, birthdays and anniversaries. They are now one of the focal points of special celebrations not just by Filipinos but also people from around the world.
Cakes have evolved from a rectangular bread with icing on top to what they are now – an edible art. Cake artists now not only bake and use flour, eggs and sugar; they are also equipped with special tools to create complex works of art by molding, sculpting and coating.
Wowie Lontok, a graduate of PSID (Philippine School of Interior Design), started Cake designing as a hobby. While attending a product launch, a Pastry Chef encouraged her to try baking and sell some to friends. She started with cupcakes, brownies and other small pastries. Not bad for a start up, this kind of business would not only satisfy your tummy, but your pockets as well! An opportunity came and from her first cake design which is a Nikkon camera btw, she would get calls from different customers and ask how much it would cost to make one. From a hobby, WoW Cakes which started last May of 2011, is now getting 3-5 customers a week.
If you are looking for customized sculptured fondant cakes, like soccer balls, designer bags, a caricatured version of someone, or any thing that would represent your loved ones personality, we recommend Wow Cakes. They have a wide range of flavors to choose from and their designs are just amazing! Don’t just settle on the common and ordinary.
This is what we love about Art, no matter what medium you use, it’s not just about the money you earn from it, sometimes it’s about the satisfaction you get from doing something that love to do while wholeheartedly letting your creative side work on your craft and see somebody smile and say ‘thank you, we love it!’ on the side.
