Role model women inspire a sweet act from Chermaine

After weeks of talking to and listening to 5 inspirational Malaysian philanthropic women as the host of NTV 7’s SK-11 Miracle Makers, Chermaine Poo decided that she would do her part for charity as well – by baking cupcakes to raise funds for a charitable organisation of her choice. Poo became the highlight in the show she was hosting when she challenged herself to bake 1,000 cupcakes and to sell them, in a charity drive named “Chermaine’s Cupcake Charity”.

The TV actress and chartered accountant baked the cupcakes single-handedly, only enlisting the help of her celebrity acquaintances and close friends to pack the cupcakes, all done within a span of two days. Within that time, Poo had to sell the beautiful cupcakes, packed in boxes of 6 starting at RM50 each, at Sunway Pyramid.
