Featured Supplier CAKE “You dream it we make it.” Partners, and sisters, Maite Gregorio and Candy Sanchez, combine their unique specialties to whip up a cake surprise. Your Cake Concept Cakes have gone a long journey from just being sweet breads. We’ve seen the simple cake transform to all kinds of shapes, colors and themes. The cake maker’s creativity and skill is critical in the designing of a cake. Only those with the steadiest hands, the sharpest eyes and the most vivid imagination can take on this challenge. And, those who succeed, did because they’ve made our dreams into lovely sweets. Ms. Maite shares, “In the beginning our inspiration were our families and friends who believed in our talent and creativity. Today, our inspiration is our clients who come to us with cake designs that challenge our talent, skill and creativity. When a soon to be wed couple come to us with a challenging task- a cake design that has a new concept and is challenging. Our team of skilled cake designers and decorators look forward with great anticipation to the next challenging cake. Right now, my sister, Candy, is busy doing an Air Force 1 cake for a regular client.”. Maite is the one with a flair for the elegant and the classic, while, Candy uses her hands to form the funky and quirky designs matched with playful toppers – together, they offer clients exactly what they want. She describes the most memorable cake concepts they have encountered and have delivered, “we are proudest of the shoe cake for a debutante, the Malacanang cake we did for our past President GMA for her last birthday, the Caleruega Church cake, a replica of the said church, and the Canyon Woods Clubhouse cake. In July last year, we received a call from a client- a debutante who wanted a cake with several pairs of shoes, lots of them. We never met her. We sent her a sketch thru e-mail and from there she placed her order. We felt that she has given us full trust and confidence, and we told ourselves, ‘we will do our best to make this cake turn out really nice’.” Ingredients for the Perfect Cake While she emphasizes that “there is nothing difficult if you love what you are doing..” She also underscored, that aside from their talent, skill and passion, punctuality is also vital in the business. They make sure cake is delivers on time. She adds, “at Cake Concepts, [we] would always provide the cake required by the couple.”. Perhaps, it is also important to note, that before their cake business, she and husband Geo Gregorio, were already in the bakeshop business. A foundation that carried Cake Concepts Unlimited through almost 2 decades of nothing, but, impressive cakes (and impressed clients!). “Our cakes are one of a kind. Made to order. Our service includes a one-on-one meeting with the couple wherein I get inputs as to the theme of the wedding, the color motif, what they like and what they don’t like in a cake. Candy and I would discuss about the cake and would come up with a sketch. Which is presented to the couple for approval. Our smallest three layer wedding cakes cost P10,000.00. A big three layer wedding cake may cost P15,000.00 up. Price may depend on cake size, cake flavor and design. It is also a policy of our company not to make dummy cakes or cakes that have only a small piece of cake. After all we are not styro makers, but cake makers and decorators.” “..we are not styro makers, but cake makers and decorators.” Maite Gregorio and Candy Sanchez geomaite@rocketmail.com (+632) 723.2534 (+632) 723.2570 Cake-Concepts-260994653921680 (+63) 917.8326212 (+63) 922.8226212 www.cakeconceptsunlimited.com
