Why sell cakes online

Selling cakes online in the Philippines is a growing trend due to the convenience it offers to customers who are looking for a variety of flavours and designs that are not always available in local bakeries.

Online cake shops also provide the option for customisation and delivery, which makes it easier for people to order cakes for special occasions or surprise gifts.

The competitive pricing and discounts offered by online cake shops have also contributed to the popularity of this business model.

As the demand for online cake shops continues to rise, it presents a lucrative opportunity for entrepreneurs to enter the market and establish a successful business.
