Tutu Cupcakes was born in a bath. Now I know that sounds a bit weird and a little too much information perhaps, but let me paint a picture for you!
After years of working in a variety of different fields, a divorce, and re-discovering who I am, I realised that I am an entrepreneur at heart and that explained the ever present buzz in me. I was never satisfied with only doing one thing at a time, and pushed myself very hard to make things work.
I came upon an opportunity to buy over a cake business and I was completely over the moon! I really thought: Wow, this is it, this is where it all changes for me! Sadly, it turned out to be more sour than sweet, and I backed out and lost more money than I would've wanted.
Enter the bath! When I experience stress or turmoil, I run a bath, and soak while I contemplate solutions and sometimes just have a good solid cry. After this disappointing turn of events, I had myself a very good cry, and my hubby was comforting me. And it was at that moment that it dawned on me: I can do this my way! I can start my own cake business, right here, right now!
Tutu Cupcakes is a name that just popped up, and I like to think of those cute little cupcakes with the tutu bodice and skirt!
Having a go at it myself has had it's ups and downs, but after two years, I don't regret a thing! I love baking and decorating, and for me, there is nothing more special than celebrating a birthday, or a wedding, or anniversaries!
I will be sharing more of my journey, tips and tricks in posts to follow, so keep peeping in!
