Craving for sweets? Problem solved! The Cupcake Station by Ria will save your day. Join me as we explore the story behind these cutie cupcakes.

I know you want to know who is the person behind this cupcake. So let me introduce you, Miss Ria Manuel and her business partner, Miss Yeye Aguinaldo. When she was younger, she's always been a business-minded person. Food business has always been a part of her dream, to have her own restaurant. It all started with a baking challenge from a friend until it became her passion. She is also artistic that's why she ended up in choosing cupcakes. As you can see, each cupcake was well thought of in terms of its design and of course, the texture and taste. Starting a business was never easy. Tip here is, you don't have to buy everything at once. Just take it one step at a time until you reach enough savings then you can start investing on better equipments. Also, support from family and friends was essential too at that time because they will also serve as your natural market.

There's nothing wrong with simplicity, but they always strive to make each cupcake look very distinctive and unique. Satisfaction and consistency  will always be their priority and number one commandment. Her vision is to have her own cupcake shop, few bakers and employees, and of course, thousands of customers. This wouldn't be possible without her business partner, Yeye Aguinaldo. She bakes too and does the frosting. They are business partners since 2011. It's very rare to find somebody you wouldn't have conflicts with.

Let me quote you this wonderful message from Miss Ria. "One thing I can share from what I've experienced is never stop dreaming. When you want something, just believe in yourself and be passionate about it because everything else will follow. When you love what you do and knowing that you get to put smiles on other people's faces, you will never get tired of it doing everyday."

I know some of you guys are now craving. And I am lucky I have the chance to try their cupcakes. My personal favorite is Smores Oreo Truffle Stuffed cupcake with Oreo Buttercream Frosting.
