MANILA – Late last year, a bakeshop in Tomas Morato, Quezon City promised to give away P5 million worth of cakes for free if Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte wins in the 2016 presidential elections.

Now that Duterte is set to be sworn into office after a landslide election victory, netizens are reminding the bakeshop about its promise.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Quim’s Cake finally announced that it will “stay true to our promise” by letting 50 people at a time sample their cakes every first and 15th of the month starting this July until December.

Those interested to try the cakes are required to like the bakeshop’s Facebook page and reserve a slot via e-mail.

“Schedules to be continued in 2017,” Quim’s Cake assured customers.

The Facebook post has been shared more than 7,100 times as of writing, with netizens having mixed views about the announcement.

Some are looking forward to getting free cake, while a few doubted that the bakeshop will deliver on its promise, saying that P5 million worth of products will definitely hurt any business.

Others, meanwhile, suggested that Quim’s Cake give away their desserts to those who are in need.
