Taking the entrepreneurial plunge

November 20, 2009 at 1:29 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

I know I haven’t blogged in a loooooong time so I’m going to try and make up for that in the next week.  First a short post.  I have started a website and a new business.  While the baking isn’t new, I’m adding to it by doing cupcake decorating parties.  I really really think that this is something that is going to be very popular and will be popping up in the near future so I’m trying to get ahead of the curve.  My long term plan is to make enough money so that i can open up a store and bake and  host parties there in addition to doing them on location.

I’m very excited.  I am also proud of myself.  In addition to actually coming up with the idea and starting the business, I did the logo design and web design myself.  I have definitely learned a lot and now let the real fun begin – getting the word out 🙂

I’m going to a going-away party for my cousin tonight.  He’s leaving this Monday for NY to start a job in the real world! It’s an awesome job that uses his UF Finance degree wth a big company so we are all very proud of him! And of course now we have someone to visit in NY!

These are cupcakes that I made for his going – away party.  You can see more pics of them at http://toutesweetcreations.wordpress.com

This is a pull-apart cake, which means its a bunch of cupcakes put together and iced as one large cake and you can “pull it apart” instead of having to slice a cake. This was for an 80’s themed party.

My creation

July 1, 2008 at 6:04 pm (Cooking) (, )

I’ve always been sort of a closet cook. I love to do it, but it’s all self-taught. If I could do it all over again, I would have gone to culinary school instead of college. Anyway, since I’m a SAHM (stay-at-home-mom) I really feel this is the right time to get started on a business of my own. Because who really likes working for someone else. So, I think I’m going to put some effort into marketing myself and selling my wares. Unfortunately, all these years that I’ve made chocolates and cookies for the holidays I’ve never taken a damn picture of them! So I don’t have pics to show. This is the only one I have for now, and I suppose I will have to start creating for the sole purpose of photographing what I can offer. For now, this is what I have. Vanilla cupcakes with gumpaste butterflies and flowers.
