Where It All Began
This journey all started in 2011 when I found myself at a crossroad after graduating from college. I got a degree in graphic design but soon realized I had no desire to pursue a job in that field. I took a year off after college to do some soul searching, and figure out what I wanted to do next in life, during that time I got really obsessed with watching cake decorating shows and it’s as if a light bulb went off saying “that’s what I should be doing!” I loved that it was something creative, messy, and fast paced. After toying with the idea for a few weeks I was blessed with an opportunity to work for a small home based bakery in California. With hardly any knowledge of cake decorating, or baking, I packed up my life and hit the road to learn as much as I could as fast as I could. My time down there was truly life changing and is a huge part of my success today. During an evening Skype date with Jordan I told him I felt like this was the path I was meant for and that I wanted to start a cake business when I got home. Without hesitation he loaned me $500 to buy my start up equipment. To this day he still brags that it’s the best investment he ever made. Upon my return in September 2011, my parents graciously let me turn the lower level of their home into a commercial kitchen, and Sugar Cubed Cakes was born.
