HEAD COOK: Maria Aba Montecielo Guevara
COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship
My mom entered the catering business when I was still a kid - this introduced me to the world of Arts and Crafts. In most of my mom's events then, I was her person to go to for the souvenirs. Thus, started my own business - TowelCakes by Montecielo - an online souvenir and gift shop. I started last 2007--my creations were made of towels and edible baked delicacies--amongst friends and relatives. I graduated BA Management still continued to perfect my craft by taking up a few more classes in cooking and baking.
When my mom got sick, my siblings and I took over her catering work - hence, The Big Siblings biz was born. We joined cooking/baking contests to promote our name, our work, and skills. We won last 2009 in Hypermart Community Cookfest as 1st place. I also bagged the 1st spot for my first online match (Appetizer Dish) in Anchor Home Chef last 2013. After which lead me to win a few more cooking/baking contests.
This is my first time with WFC - I pray and wish to be part of this prestigious competition and bring home the crown.
