I have a lot of hobbies such as dancing, painting, DIYs, shopping, and so many more. This summer, my mom and I transformed one of our hobbies into a business. We have both been really into baking cakes and cupcakes for years. During my senior year of high school we took a cake decorating class. Cake decorating is using frosting and fondant to make a cake look for appealing to the eye. The class taught simple frosting techniques that most people could do. Then we learned about fondant which made cake decorating even easier. Fondant is just sugar paper that you can cut and mold into any shape that you want. It is less messy than frosting because it does’t have a stick texture to it. It cuts like paper and can folded to look like anything.
As a business, we started very slow. We started asking our family friends if they needed a cake or dessert for any party or occasion. More and more people wanted a cake because of how unique each one of our designs were. We ask people what their hobbies are and what the theme of the cake should be. Then we design it the way we think works best. Now we have started charging people for the desserts we make and we called our business, Bakealicious Creations. It took us a while to get the hang of how to charge people. It takes a lot of effort and supplies to make just one cake, so we have to make sure we get paid back for that. Starting this business has been quite a fun adventure. I can’t wait to see how far we can go!
