So, after many years of talking about it, wishing I took the chance and thinking of what could have been...I did the unthinkable. I told myself, it’s time to stop dreaming and make it happen! Simply Cakes would finally become a reality. I was tired of finding all the reasons not to and I found the reason to make my cupcake business work. I was doing it for me as I enjoy the peace I get from creating and baking.
My passion for baking has always been there, even when I was a little girl baking in my mother’s kitchen. I baked a variety of things for many years, but it was baking cakes for my daughter’s birthday every year is what had me hooked. I loved the idea of creating a themed cake or being creative on my own to make a special cake, from that came the cupcakes!
I became excited by the prospects of sharing my passion for baking cupcakes with others. now comes the hard part...how do I make this happen?
It was a lot of research, taking a Food Course, registering my business, creating a Food Safety Plan and a Sanitation Plan. Then, it was finding an industrial kitchen to rent, Insurance policy, IHA inspection and a city business license.... all the while holding down a full-time job. I would work during the day and spend my nights perfecting recipes. Sounds like a lot doesn't it? I wouldn't change one thing about what got me here today. To me, telling you about my journey and the pride I feel in knowing I gave it all to my business, makes Simply Cakes a success! There is still so much to do and bake but the foundation is set, and I am ready to bring you with me through my journey! Thank you all
