These days, there is much demand for high quality and delicious cakes and pastries. Cakes and pastries have become staples in special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, debuts, baptism, anniversaries and the like.

Because of Filipinos natural love for celebrating special events, there is big business in cakes and pastries. At present, bakeshops continue to mushroom all over the country. Established names in the business continue to thrive while newer and smaller ones have been emerging, including those that are homebased. This situation proves that demand for cake and pastry products continue to rise.


Cakes and pastries are specialized products and are not usually found in ordinary stores. They can be bought in bakeshops and are a bit more expensive than the usual bread like pandesal and monay. This is because ingredients for cakes and pastries are also more expensive.

Cakes and pastries may also be sold in schools and offices, as well as in hotels and restaurants.

A 100% return on investment (ROI) is possible in this kind of business. In a year's time, you will recover your costs and earn a profit.
