I was the co-owner of Filipino Fusion Desserts along with Susan Perras. Although we closed the doors on our business in September of 2019, for the two and half years that it was opened, we accomplished a lot.
We created Filipino Inspired Modern and Classic Artisanal Desserts – Made from Scratch. We proudly catered Filipino Fusion Desserts in the GTA. Our desserts included a combination of traditional Filipino and Western desserts with a modern twist.
We were proud to have stocked our products such as our ube cookies, ube pastillas, and/or assorted cheesecakes within Seafood City Supermarket, T&T Supermarket, and Halo-Halo Foods in Mississauga.
I myself thoroughly enjoyed this experience because it enabled me to get more connected to my roots as a Filipina, and it opened the doors to the amazing Toronto/Global community that included fellow entrepreneurs and foodies. We also loved being present at outdoor festivals and community events to help educate the world about the amazing flavours we grew up with such as ube, pandan, or calamansi.
Here is an amazing recap video of our experience, the vision, and why we did it. A special thanks goes out to Danny Santa Ana for producing our videos.
