You might have wondered what’s Baked Lunchbox, one of my sponsors in my blog giveaway? No, not a biodegradable lunchbox or anything near it but lots of tasty baked goodies. Baked Lunchbox is a solo baking enterprise owned by Tracey Tan, a student in the University of Asia and the Pacific where I first met her. From what started as hobby and as a way to treat some friends, she turned her past-time into a business with a wide variety of baked cookies, cakes and pastries to choose from. Interesting fact is she didn’t even have a formal training in baking, everything was self-taught and perfection through experience.
Baking for Tracey is a relaxing moment where she can take all the raw ingredients, mix them together, make her imagination work and create something wonderfully edible. It is a sort of art where the end product is in though even before it is even finished. Tracey even sets aside two hours of her busy schedule to bake and relieve stress in the process. She encountered lot of downsides too when she started including the expensive tool and wasted ingredients from her first tries, which she believes is worth it since that baking always has ups and downs no matter how one has mastered ingredients but positivity rules the day.
Opening a bakeshop or a café is Tracey’s dream and this inspires her to bake more goodies for satisfied customers who always goes back for more. What keeps customers on coming back is because she always has new ideas for a new batch of baked goodies, often they are innovations. She has new products like green tea cakes, newer cheesecake flavors or concepts and many more to come that will surely capture your imagination. Like a fashion collection or a new music album, new pastry concepts are to mix or matches so to complement one range of flavors to another. I really find this one an interesting thought to hear.
Currently, she markets her products by mainly word of mouth and some few fliers around though she keeps a Facebook Like Page and an account with Tumblr for posting her latest creations. Friends, family and classmates are her usual customers but she also takes in orders from those who have come to know about her products online. Contact her for your orders at (0917)583-2812 with pick up points at her place, UA&P and areas around Ortigas Center. Savor the best baked goodies and pastries in town with Baked Lunchbox.
