Wow, I can hardly believe that three years ago today I was rushing about finishing the final touches just in time to open my little cake shop in the heart of West Bridgford. I remember thinking at the time how surreal it all felt…almost as if it was a dream. I guess because it was a dream- my dream, and one that became reality.
It’s been an amazing journey so far, with both its highs and lows, and I have met so many incredible people along the way that will always remain in my heart. I’m so proud to have made it this far and I honestly feel that I am only just getting started. The truth is that it takes a while to find your feet when you embark on a new business venture, and sometimes what you initially set out to do doesn’t turn out quite how you imagined, and you have to learn to adapt to the ever changing times.
That being said, I haven’t swayed away from what I always had set in my heart to do- to spread happiness and love, and bring people together through the simple pleasure of cake. It’s kinda cliché I know, but it’s true, and if I have achieved that then I have achieved something. My work is not done yet though…boy have I got a lot more to come and I am excited for what the future brings.
I would like to say a HUGE thank you for all your support so far- without my loyal customers and fans I would not be where I am today, and I hope that you will continue to support me on my journey.
As a thank you, I invite you to come and celebrate with me at the shop this Saturday. Please feel welcome to pop by anytime between 12 and 3pm where I will of course have plenty of cake to share!
