Years ago, my friend Joie started out baking cookies and brownies as her hobby. Her friends (me on top of the list) are the very lucky beneficiaries of her “experimental” goodies. All of us agreed that she should level up and turn this hobby into a business. It wasn’t easy to convince her. She felt that her end products were not good enough for people to actually spend on them. Looking back, I think this is the thing that made her really good in what she does. What may seem to me as lack of self-confidence is actually passion in disguise. She does not want to settle with just having delicious goodies. She wants her future customers to get the best out of their hard-earned money. And it's not false humility. She is one of the humblest people I have ever known. So rest assured na hindi kayo makakakain ng cupcakes/cookies/brownies na gawa sa kayabangan! =))

I would like to think that My Sweets’ Haven is a product of friendship and collaboration. I remember spending numerous lunch breaks with my former office mates as we brainstorm on the possible names for Joie’s future business. It ranged from serious up to the silliest suggestions like Joie’s Minatamis and Cookies en Cream! Hahaha! Jeff helped Joie in coming up with the logo. I had inputs too. When they were still conceptualizing the first logo, she made me choose between two, and I remember telling her, “Huwag ‘yan! Mukhang tae ‘yung frosting ng cupcake!” Nyahahahaha!!!

Other than that, I also had the chance to taste most of her creations. I am her unofficial Quality Assurance Tester (or should I say Taster?!). She told me that she values my opinions very much because of my very critical taste in food. She believes me too, and she does not get hurt with my criticisms. Others attempted to do the same, they failed. Ako lang ang may karapatan batikusin si Joie! :p

Today, she is beginning to spread her wings. She is now more fearless. After countless of pushing from her super kulit friend (that’s me), she is finally investing in promoting her products. One way to achieve this is by throwing a giveaway via the most popular blog in the country among her circle of friends! Tatlo lang yata kaming friends niya ang may blog?! =))

Before I give you the mechanics, allow me to show you some of her products. Make sure you have a hanky while looking at the photos. You will definitely drool over these!

A lot of online sellers are just focusing on baking and selling cupcakes. Joie’s versatility sets her apart from them. She offers a lot more than those cutesy cupcakes.

You have to try Mary Melts! Named after Me-Anne, our cray cray friend, this will make your taste buds go crazy too! I am not lying. Even my pintasera mom loves this!!!

Do you know any online sellers who offer cupcakes, cookies, brownies, cake pops, bibingka and cassava cakes? I only know of one – My Sweets’ Haven! I remember buying bibingka and cassava cakes to Joie countless of times. In all occasions, I had to restrain myself from eating the cassava cake after I have already consumed half of it! I’m not kidding. My husband had to take it away from my hand. Fortunately, Joie did something about this and came up with this bite-size cassava cakes. Heehee!
