10 Jun List of Cake Makers and Cake Bakers in Cagayan de Oro for Your Pastry Needs
Just a decade ago, any chef or baker in Cagayan de Oro specializing in cakes for all events was looked upon with awe by Kagay-anons. For many, being a cake maker/cake or pastry chef/baker was something out of the ordinary, something reserved only for those probably with inborn skills and talents, given also the fact that culinary and baking schools were only found in Manila. Today, however, with a variety of culinary and baking schools all around Cagayan de Oro, everyone is suddenly finding ways to become a chef, baker, or cake maker, and going into the business as well. Perhaps it also has something to do with progress since Cagayan de Oro is now recognized as the next doorway in Mindanao to the culinary and baking arts.
That is why, with the proliferation of cake makers and cake bakers in the city, sometimes we’re not aware that our next door neighbor is actually a top cake maker/baker, or that seemingly ordinary windowed shop in Divisoria is a top cake maker. Here are some of the top cake makers and bakers around the city you probably don’t know about.
