Wow what a week! I have been the busiest yet which is fantastic, I love what I do and its so amazing to see people enjoy what I create, I just want even more!! From Sheffield to Barnsley, Derbyshire to Rotherham our cakes have been spreading the joy!
As the whole business world is still very new to me I knew the first few months of running the company would be tough, and I wasn’t wrong, I actually underestimated just how much. There were points when I questioned if I could do it, and the temptation of employment with its guaranteed monthly wage made it tough to keep myself convinced that I could make self-employment work.
Nevertheless, be it determination to succeed or stubbornness to prove myself wrong I kept reiterating in my mind, in the end it will all be worth it, and there shone a few rays of proof peaking through my cloudy doubt, that it I can achieve my goals if I plough on.
Most of the orders I receive are for birthday cakes, especially novelty cakes! I think this is because they are a bit of fun and highly personal to the person they are presented to. I’ve had a few graduations, best teacher, christening cakes, and wedding anniversary cakes, it just proves how versatile cakes are in that they can be given as presents for basically any occasion! I even made the family dog a dog friendly birthday cake for his first birthday 😀 I’m not crazy I just love baking 🙂
