I remember I started baking when I was 9, much fascinated by the whole idea of creating something unique of my own-self. Yes, like other parents, my mother also was hesitant of allowing me to do such “toddler’s baking” stuff in kitchen but let’s say I had to find ways for that like a child does. 🙂
How It Began:
Growing up, I never thought of launching my own startup. Baking was just a hobby that took me away from the stress, illness, and problems of life. But in my intermediate, my brother started a small venture which allowed me to showcase my baking skill set by creating and selling cakes to customers. The venture lasted a few years but it enlightened me to channel my hobby in something that is today Once Upon A Cake.
People Who Helped Me:
Speaking my heart out, OUAC is an early success to me and it requires managing and business skill set that a baker like me doesn’t have. This is where my family support jumps in. Alhamdulillah, I proudly say I’ve got the best people around me. I cannot be thankful enough to my family who have assisted me through thick and thin, and to my founding customers who actually got to eat my initially not-so-good cakes. Obviously, self learning takes time and lots of sacrifices, sweat, and money.
