Morning! Nice to Meet you, I am Tammy here is my story xo
and how I got to love every part of my day….
It all started….
I was entirely unaware how making cupcakes for a friend’s sister’s wedding (you get that?) would change my life. As time went on I got better and I grew not only with my skills but in business. I will never forget that first commission and how it gave me that little kick start and got me where I am today.
One of my favourite things to do is to cook large holiday dinners or hosting dinner parties. I have even been writing a cookbook for the last few years. Meals that will knock your socks off and loosen your belt. Funny thing is before that first wedding I barely remember baking! Weird I know! I think I may have only started when we made cupcakes in a jar for my wedding as favours 10 years ago and I still hear about what a hit those where.
Building upon my self-education, I continue my skills by frequently taking courses both online and in person. You’re never to old to learn I say - I even take classes on things I know how to do because you can always pick up something new. Best way to learn for me is to just do it haha - I’m one of those!
3 Years ago I took a leap of faith in myself when we were left making huge career decisions. After 15 years working for the Federal Government I took a leave to be home to take care of our daughter. Like so many we were left with no child care before and after school and really no other choice. So I decided, now or never. We built a separate dedicated health inspected kitchen. I kicked into high gear with both of my shops (The CakeHouse & Little Tweet Heart - Gift wares) and haven’t looked back! I still have a few more years left before I have to totally decide if I leave the CBSA as our kiddo is still quite young, but being able to work from home and have a Sunday dinner is something I missed out on for most of my adult life. I am blessed. And I owe it to all the people and customers who believed in me - Thank you xo
The rest of my story? Well that isn’t written yet but I am just getting started…
