Selling banana cakes as a side income


Khairulnisa Izwanin

KUCHING: Realising that there is high demand for banana cakes among locals, Khairulnisa ​​Izwanin Johri quickly seized the opportunity to earn a side income during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 22-year-old, who works as a clerk, decided to sell banana cakes because they are favoured by all walks of life and are not too sweet like some of the cakes sold nowadays.

“I really love baking since I was a child. I feel happy and satisfied when I see other people enjoying the desserts and cakes I made.”

She said before she started the business in December last year, she joined a distance learning group on Facebook to better understand the ins and outs of entrepreneurship, and picking up banana cake- making techniques through social media platforms such as YouTube.

Khairulnisa ​​added that besides regularly improving the taste and quality of her cakes, she also tried various recipes to give her customers more choices.

Among the flavours are chocolate, oreo, dua benua (two flavours in one cake) as well as marble.

Speaking on the challenges, she said she often faced a shortage of bananas, and this caused her to sometimes travel around Kuching to replenish supply.

Khairulnisa ​​said if her business grows in future, she would like to do it full-time.

For orders, Khairulnisa can be contacted at 011-25103629 or visit @bananacakeq on Instagram.
