I got my first customer at "The Baker's Rack". There really isn't a "Baker's Rack" business, but I can dream! "The Baker's Rack" is the name I have set aside for my "Future Bakery" I have long dreamed of opening my own bakery and have vowed that I would no matter what it takes. It doesn't look like it is going to happen in the near future because I have a soon to be junior in high school who will be getting closer to graduation and then I have another child to graduate after that. If I could I would open it right now. I have thought of ways to begin slowly and work my way up. I have thought of a cookie bouquet business, an actual small bakery, selling my brownies and the ever popular Cake Decorating business. From the looks of it I will start with the cake business. I have all the tools that I need, but I didn't have any "customers".
I got my first customer this week. It happened to be one of the girls from the softball team. As she said "my cakes are awesome!" She asked me to make one for her mom's birthday. I have never really decorated a cake with flowers. This was my first attempt. They worked out really good! I am hoping word of mouth will put my baking out there and I can slowly but surely achieve my dream.
The city I live in is small and doesn't have anything that would resemble a real bakery. There is a "Bakery" here, but they actually only make doughnuts, a couple of different cookies and Mexican breads. My bakery dream consists of cakes, pies, brownies, cookies and the occasional pastry. I hope to one day be able to tell you all that it finally worked out and "The Baker's Rack" is official. Wish me luck with my vision!
