How was the idea for your business born?
My love for baking started as a child. I grew up watching my Mother and Grandmother create delicious desserts for Holidays and was keen to get involved in the process for as long as I can remember. My love for the decorating side of things came a bit later in life. When I was 15 years old I had an accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury and left me quadriplegic. As I learned to adapt to my new life I found myself struggling with the loss of hobbies that I previously loved but could no longer do and was desperately looking for something to fill that void. Cake decorating ended up being a big piece of that — I took all of the Wilton courses that were offered by Michaels at the time and have been absorbing as much information from my environment and honing my skills ever since. It took a 4 year English degree, a brief venture into the event planning sphere, a 2 year hiatus to play wheelchair rugby and a whole lot of cakes for friends and family to realize that I wanted baking and decorating to be a bigger part of my life, so in 2018 I decided to go back to school to study Baking and Pastry Arts and continue to fine-tune my skills. At the end of that program I was left with a decision — search for a job working for someone else or start a business that would be all mine and would allow me to bake and create the things I felt most passionate about — I suppose the rest is history!
