These Are the Sassiest Cakes We’ve Ever Seen
One says "HBD, Wash Your Hands."
(SPOT.ph) With all the options you have in the Metro for really good cake, how many years has it been since you’ve gotten one for your birthday that had the classic greeting written on it? You know the one, with its buttercream frosting and neat script written in brightly colored piping gel. It was always a thrill when your mom would bring it to the table with a flourish: a huge rectangular confection with its little candles and ceramic superhero or cartoon character. Well, we found a baker that makes cakes that are kind of like that—only more grown up. Cakes for the Sassy is an online shop that makes cakes with witty messages—they’re so fun, you’ll want to order one even when there’s no occasion at all.
“I’m a big fan of birthday celebrations and it wouldn’t be complete if there is no cake,” says Mica Sedano in quick online chat with SPOT.ph. Sedano started Cakes for the Sassy in 2017. “I would scout bakeshops with the most unique and tasty cakes for my family and friends but I always get frustrated when I couldn’t find the perfect one without it being too expensive or stylish or as witty as I want it to be. So I came up with the idea to bake one and write anything I want on it. Soon I realized, it wasn’t just baking that I loved but the pure joy it brings me every time I see my family and friends appreciate and have a good laugh at it. It’s like converting inside jokes, good humors and shared memories all together in one cake.”
She wasn’t always a full-time baker, she says. “Before I discovered my passion [for] baking, I was lucky enough to experience [a] different [field] of business entrepreneurship which I could apply as a full-time baker.”
The messages on the cakes are often thought up by clients themselves, with Sedanto happily obliging. The most memorable message she’s written on a cake so far? “’16 YEARS MO NA AKONG CRUSH,’ and ’P’s FIRST HAPPY HEART-NIVERSARY’. Both messages came from one client who celebrated their 16 years of marriage and [the] anniversary of their daughter’s heart surgery. I would say that the best thing about writing cake messages [is] it brings me closer to our clients as they willingly share its meaning and their backstory,” she shares.
Orders can be made using their online form. Cakes are 6 or 8 inches in diameter and can be ordered with pink or white icing. Payment can be made through BDO or BPI bank transfer or bank deposit and pick-up can be done curbside or through a delivery service.
