Hobby Cake is a homemade bakery run by former nurse instructor, Khun Pum. She started baking cakes during her leisure. The taste was so good that her friends and relatives recommended to others and asked her to set up the business. Not only the taste that is second to none, the cake decoration is also unique with her creative art design. The word of mouth spread around with overwhelming orders. “Hobby Cake” was named from there.
The business has been growing rapidly and the product lines have been expanded from cakes to cookies, brownies and chocolate. Thanks to her strong background in health caring, the knowledge has been well applied to develop very healthy recipes as well as clean production process. “Healthy Lifestyle” is our slogan which well reflected to our product characters.
