I was planning to open a little ice treats business but Leo/Kate told me that it's not going to work and advised that cupcakes would be better. Hell, yeah! I bake for fun and it's my stress therapy. I blow money on baking (bake and trash, trying to find that perfect recipe. I am picky about my cake). It would be nice to be able to bake for a living or at very least make some money back to recoup the cost of it. If Pop can "draw" for a living, why can't I "bake" and earn some cash too?
Well, I'm not a great baker, just a decent one. However, I have just the right recipes that can rival any other bakery out there. I have to say my recipes are not original. I've tried so many recipes and I just pick and choose what I think work (for me) and combine with my personal like and taste to create my own. (which I have to say is "not too sweet" - crazy right? but I really don't like sweet stuff that much)
I know I'm in line for the cut and I haven't got the answers from the two internship programs I applied for yet. IF, I have to collect unemployment, I will seriously think about opening my own business or go into partnership with someone. Even if I get that intern job, I will try to find a time to go after my new dream.
Where should I start? Jan is an expert when it comes to restaurant and Norman has great experience in operating one. I think I'll go to them for the advice. BUT for now, I'll keep praying that I get that internship and try to perfect my decorating skills. I want to "WOW" the guests at Kate & Leo wedding. That would be my first test to get my very own creations evaluated by strangers. So far, I only feed these cupcakes to Pop and my roommies and they always love everything I made even those I thought was so aweful that I had to sneak-threw them away. (If I didn't throw them away, they would eat them)
