7 years of good luck

7 years of good luck

This month marks 7 years that I’ve been in business. 7 years of good luck is what I’m calling it. Where do I begin to tell you the knowledge and capabilities that I have acquired over these past 7 years.

As a lot of you may know, I began my journey while I was on maternity leave with my youngest, Mayson. My sister in law sent me a blog post about cake pops while I was pregnant and I found that this was the time to perfect them!

I soon found out that I wanted more out of my business. So here I am today, 7 years of good luck later, with a thriving company creating sweet moments!

It’s more than luck, really. I feel blessed and grateful for the opportunities that were presented to me, the people that I have met along the way and the growth that I attained personally.

It’s not easy running a business and raising kids. You’ve got to be on your game. Sometimes, you have your ego telling you one thing but your gut saying something different. What I’ve learned is to listen to my gut. Always!

My kids have been my biggest cheerleaders. Now they’re more involved with what I do. I’ve taught them to bake, how to plan and even how to set up a sweet table. I keep telling them that they’ve already got an extensive resume when they go out looking for a job lol.

But most importantly, what I’ve learned, is community over competition. The amount of friends I’ve made in the baking community is huge! It’s a group of friends that when we need something, we are there for each other. Dont’ get me wrong, competition is good for your business. But it has to be a healthy, goal oriented type of competition. Not the jealousy and resentment type. Believe me, I’ve been there and I can tell you it gets you no where real fast. As this blogger, Davey Jones from Rising Tide  puts it:

“One of the best ways to live out community over competition is to practice gratitude. When we’re thankful, we’re not fearful. And when we’re not fearful, we’re not insecure. When we’re thankful, we’re full, and we share that spirit of abundance with others (David Steindl-Rast says this more eloquently.)”

In conclusion, have no fear. Do the thing you’ve always wanted to do. Go for the goal. You’ll be happier that you did!

Here are some of my past and present sweet tables that I’ve done. Oh my, have I grown as a stylist and as a baker ☺️

A Mint Green and White Baptism Sweet Table

A Mint Green and White Baptism Sweet Table

It’s not always about weddings when it comes to having a sweet table. I created a mint green and white baptism sweet table this summer for the cutest little guy. The sweet table was placed as the centre of attention, before the small gathering of family and friends.

Dominic’s mom wanted to go with a rustic theme with added angel wings on desserts and rosaries on the chocolates. With all the rustic themes I’ve been doing these past few months,  I had all the necessary decor items to make this happen. The venue added the perfect backdrop as you’ll see in the pictures.

I think I’ve mastered the rustic, boho, chic feel for sweet tables.

For the sweet table I added cake pops with angel wings, mini cupcakes, macarons, sugar cookies decorated with crosses. I also added chocolates that were adorned with rosaries and wood crosses.

When you create a sweet table for a specific event, make sure that the elements added are in tune with what you’re celebrating. It makes for great pictures and memories.

Here are some great pictures from the event:
