You can try using Carousell? Start from there.

It’s possible to actually find a ton of home bakers there selling their home made cakes and produce. Do check it out!

I think until it becomes bigger, then you should consider getting the relevant licenses and filing with ARCA.

Because administration can be a hassle.

Thank you for sharing, I'm starting small. I do not know much now but hopefully I will learn along the way.

Just to add on, why not start a FB or IG page that creates awareness of your baking and provides you a platform for you to consolidate your orders and offer special discounts, etc?

this is the FB page regarding the best pineapple tarts i have ever tasted in my life: https://www.facebook.com/Onglaipia1980/

every year, the lady quits her job to concentrate full-time on making these scrumptious pineapple tarts

I think you should look at hdb website and acra website for these info. It's all there.
