Susan’s Homemade Cakes
Susan Cerillo established the bake shop in Lucena City more than thirty years ago. Before the pandemic, it catered to weddings, birthday parties, debuts, and many other events, until business became challenging due to restrictions in every city. Because of this, Susan’s Homemade Cakes shifted to selling their baked goods online.
Susan’s Homemade Cakes went viral for the dedication cake they made which says, “Salamat na lang sa lahat.” Facebook users thought it was for a couple on the brink of breaking up. However, the bakeshop clarified that it was ordered by the owner’s brother, who was in a long-distance relationship with his partner, a nurse assigned to a COVID ward in the city.
The dedication was “not a breakup story, but salamat na lang sa lahat ng sacrifice niya in fighting against [COVID-19], and hopefully sana maging negative ang result niya para magkita na sila this week.”
