Business is such a heavy word, but I'm not sure what else to call it. I've really been thinking and looking for something I can do that I love, while still being with Jade.
I belong to a food group that seeks out the highest quality foods in the local area. A few people have looked for suggestions for cakes.
A recent email said "I'm looking for a natural ingredient cake for my wives birthday...I know one made with raw cream and milk would be too much to ask...but I thought i'd put it out there...anyone want to start their own business?"
And it struck me, why not? I can make a cake with the best quality ingredients, and I like to bake, and I need something to do. I emailed him back and told him I'd be willing to make his wive's birthday cake for the cost of ingredients + small profit.
He agreed and I linked him to my 'desserts' on my blog here! I'm so glad i've been keeping this blog- it is like my food resume'.
My first cake goes out on July 10th, I have to deliver it to DC, so that will be a whole other challenge in and of itself. Make a cake? No prob! Deliver it to a place with terrible traffic in the heat to a place you've never been? Not so much fun....
Anyway I'll be updating with photos of my first business cake- A 12''(HUGE) round cream cake- all organic and traditionally prepared (ie: expensive! raw cream is 11.00/qt). I have another scheduled for September if this one works out :)
Wish me luck!
