Bellissimamma features talented and skilled women entrepreneurs. I like to support women-owned businesses. When women support women, we feel more empowered and excited to pursue our passions.
Today’s featured businessmom is Chef Hazel Anne Santos, owner of Cupcake Matters.
Hazel Anne Santos is super passionate about baking. She decided to do a major career change and follow her dream to become a pastry chef. She then built her own baking business called Cupcake Matters.
First of all, her bespoke treats are always freshly made. Her bestsellers are the rainbow cake, red velvet cheesecake, and oreo blueberry cheesecake. She also makes delicious pies, tarts, fondant cakes, chiffon cakes, and more.
Chef Hazel and I had a marvelous chat over coffee at Shangrila Fort Bonifacio. She even gave me a box of super soft-baked nutty cookies. I was only able to eat like two of them because my son Sam devoured them all!
A Dozen Cupcakes Giveaway
Last year, before we even met in real life, Chef Hazel contacted me for a collaboration. I hosted a giveaway for a dozen cupcakes. The winner of the previous giveaway was Mommy Honey Lea Morales. She won a dozen funfetti sprinkled cupcakes! She says that the cupcakes were super yummy. Chef Hazel does not scrimp on ingredients and she makes sure her customers only get superior quality baked treats.
Cupcake Matters Bespoke Treats
Chef Hazel was so kind as to give my mother a special Mother’s Day cake. I was really so happy with her gift because I lived miles away from my family in the Philippines. My mom really liked the cake and she said it was not too sweet, which was just perfect for her taste.
Special Birthday Cakes by Cupcake Matters
Chef Hazel makes extra special birthday cakes. I ordered a super special birthday cake for my sister Hershey. I chose the letter H cake because of its unique design. Chef Hazel put Ferrero Rocher chocolates and French macarons on the cake. For me, those add-ons were very meaningful. Last year, my sister and my parents visited us in Italy. I took them around Siena and we also went to Florence and Venice. The Ferrero Rocher chocolates represented Italy. We also went to France together to attend my cousin’s wedding and to go to Disneyland, Paris to celebrate my son’s birthday. Hence, the French macarons represented our memorable trip to France.
