Baking has been an interest to me, but back then I was busy with my studies and enjoying life (hmmm :D ) that I don’t have the time to do any baking, until in 2007 after I graduated from UiTM in BSC (Hons) Tourism Management. While waiting for job offers, I’ve decided to sell cookies during Raya. Well let me tell you, for a first timer, I did pretty well! But then, that was just to get extra pocket money. After working for a several months at a language centre, my father proposed an idea. He asked whether I would like to open up a business so that I can learn to be independent and at the same time work for myself. I liked the idea and decided to quit my job as a student counselor. In the beginning I have no idea what kind of business I’m going to venture in. After discussions with my family and friends, they said do something that I have passion for and that I will enjoy doing it for the rest of my life. And finally, cupcakes business has caught my eyes!
This is when Sabrina & the Cupcakes is born! I started the business in July 2008 and for the first and second month was a struggle because I need to do extensive marketing to ensure people are aware of my products. I started with 2 flavours of cupcakes, which are Classic Chocolate and Very Vanilla. The feedback was amazing and I added another flavour, Chocolate Chip, also a best seller. It has been tough, since I’m managing everything from the buying of supplies, the baking process, delivery, marketing and managing accounts (which is not my cup of tea). But hey, I have to do it to keep the business going. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family, friends and my loyal customers (you know who you are) for the incredible support. God bless!
After nearly a year, I’ve decided to add more products. By adding new products, I need to change my name because now I’m not just selling cupcakes. Yes, re-branding is required. I organized a small contest among my friends to give me the name for my company. After a couple of months, I’ve decided to use the name Little Bakerina, which is suggested by my dear friend Mardiah Azmy. Thanks babe!
Now the journey has just begun. LITTLE BAKERINA is officially registered on May 12 2009.
