How did you get your idea or concept for your business?
The idea for my business came by way of assisting a friend with her daughter's 13th birthday party 2 years ago. I had an interest in making "treat table" desserts and took my stab at making Oreo pops, cake pops and cupcakes. Once shared with friends and family via social media, the rest is HERstory! :)
What are your company's goals?
My goal is to one day have my own bakery and event rental space. If I could have the two in one, that would be even better.
What service/product do you offer?
I offer event planning, event design, decor and custom treats. I am mainly known as "That Cupcake Lady" for my gourmet cupcakes.
How does your business help your community?
I have been blessed to donate monetarily and my services for organizations, churches and other's events.
To what do you attribute your success?
There is only one who I can attribute my success to, and that is God!! Initially I was not interested in pursuing this as anything more than a new hobby. But, a daily devotional on June 21, 2017 confirmed God’s plan for my life, I decided to move forward.
The devotional reads:
Lord, You are the Creator of everything,
And You live within me. Please help me display
Your creativity in the unique ways
You intended when You made me. Amen.
God spoke to me through this devotional that day. Not only to say move forward with your business endeavors, but also to not limit myself to baking because there is so much more creativity in me.
What one piece of advice would you give to someone just starting out?
In ALL things put God first and just follow your heart and whatever it is you're passionate about. If anyone would have told me that I would be a baker and Event Planner prior to two years ago, I would have laughed, as I did not know that that was God's plan for me. Now, I absolutely LOVE what I do. I love bringing joy to others and I've had some amazing experiences and opportunities as That Cupcake Lady and True Story Events. So, it's essential to love what you're doing.
What would you like potential new clients to know about your business?
One of my amazing opportunities is That Cupcake Lady vending at Spring Gate Vineyard. It's been a wonderful experience. I will actually be vending there 5 times this month - Saturday 5/11, Thursday 5/16, Saturday 5/18, Monday 5/27 & Thursday, 5/30. Come through and have a #CupcakeInAJar while there!! :)
