This app enables home bakers to sell online and makes starting a business a snap
Home bakers can create an e-commerce website with Cococart in minutes
Many Singaporeans have found love in baking amid long hours spent at home during the ‘circuit breaker’ period.
For those who are serious about their craft, “circuit cooking” has become more than a hobby. It was an alternative source of income – a chance to start a business and see it thrive.

But finding success can be difficult, especially when you also have to manage the fine administrative details of building a brand and juggle countless orders.
Enter Casserole, an e-commerce platform that makes it easy to create an order payment website. Within minutes, your online business is ready to go.
Now you can focus on your cooking without the knead to set the controls manually.

Starting a new business from scratch is difficult. You’ll have to take on several non-baking duties, such as tracking orders, communicating with customers, and maybe even personally handling delivery.
Things can get overwhelming – you probably wish you were an octopus instead so you could multitask.
Casserole can help make life a little easier. In a few simple steps that will take you less than 5 minutes, you can set up an order form and establish your business online.
