Yes, 2017 has been a mixed bag, with sudden losses, marriages and reunions in the family, travels and friendships. But where work goes, it has been nothing but satisfying. Baking has been that one constant and I couldn’t be more grateful to my God, for it in my life. HeartBakes has been my anchor through it all. I didn’t think it was possible but my love for baking has grown stronger. It challenges me to step out of my comfort zone each day. I oscillate between doing what I know better and realizing how little I know, each day!
But when one embarks on an entrepreneurial journey, you don’t just need to love what you do. You need to be aware and have a plan of action. You need to be realistic about your goals. It is not just passion but a careful weighing of what works and what doesn’t. Some of these you know from before and others you find out on the way. It is OK to evolve as one grows.
I had resolved to take out time to learn more on structural cakes this year. And boy, was that an achievement. It changes the way you think about cake and you begin to wonder why you didn’t think of it before. There is so much to learn and practice still where structural cakes is concerned but am glad I at least took that first step.
But what stands out for me is the love and support HeartBakes has received from its clients, new and returning. We love it when clients keep coming back to us, and your high expectations keep us on our toes. And we shall continue to do the same in 2018 and make your special occasions more memorable each time.
Until next time!
Loads of love,
