The first batch of cakes Ngoc baked was burnt, but it was still delicious to eat. To extract the recipe for business development, Ngoc took 3-4 months to make 200 banana cakes and then invited friends and colleagues to taste and give suggestions. Ngoc bought all the banana cakes available in Ho Chi Minh City and tried them out so that she could make a different cake of her own.
After that, the first cakes were sold to the market, but Ngoc did not forget to listen and improve the product to meet the needs of the market. When a customer commented that the banana cake was a bit sweet, Ngoc improved to add a line of less sweet and sugar-free cakes to meet more diverse needs.

In particular, when cooked and refrigerated overnight, the cake will be firmer and much loved by many customers.
