May Ann Cherie or AC as everyone calls her, started Cheeky Munch Cakes in 2011 – few years after coming to the UK. She is originally from the Philippines where she earned her degree in International Business and Entrepreneurial Management. Eight years after, she decided to rebrand and name her business after herself and now calls it Ann Cherie Cakes.
Baking has always been her interest while growing up, but she never had the opportunity to bake even a single cake until she got to London. Little did she know that the cake industry is where she will be able to apply her knowledge in business management, accompanied by the talent she never knew she had in creating cakes that are equally stunning, beautifully decorated and with loads of intricate details.
It’s been many years of on and off in the business, but she continuously updates herself of the current trends. She learns from the comfort of her kitchen watching tutorials from different talented cake tutors from around the globe. She finds it better to be able to watch videos repeatedly, but it is her dream to someday be able to sit down and learn first hand from her cake heroes.
When she went back to the Philippines in 2016, she was able to share her knowledge and talent with the groups of fellow cake makers who also run their own cake businesses. When opportunity knocks, she sure will be welcoming the idea of teaching and sharing her skills again.
