March Meet the Maker - Part 1

Day 1 - Story

My story started in January 2016 when I started my business, aged just 17, offering sweet cones and cakes, while still studying for my A-Levels and wanting to earn some money and be creative at the same time.

Fast forward to October 2017 and I started experimenting with chocolate and different flavour combinations. Since then I have grown my range of chocolates to include many flavours of bars and truffles alongside many seasonal products too. Now the two products that I offer are cakes and chocolates, but I am determined to prove the people who tried to kick me down wrong.

Day 2 - Hands at Work

I don’t have any photos of my hands at work as chocolate and cake making can be quite messy. However my hands are used quite often when making both cakes and chocolate. Whether it be hand rolling truffles, sprinkling toppings on chocolate bars or hand piping decorations in terms of chocolates. And with cakes it can be rolling, smoothing, lifting one cake onto another or hand cutting decorations or using moulds.

Day 3 - Time

Now time is something that I would always like more of, there never seems to be enough time in the day or week to get everything done. And with having so many ideas swirling around my head, I could work for days just playing with new chocolate flavour combinations or creating new products. And when it comes to decorating cakes they can take anywhere between a few hours to many hours and even days, with making the intricate little flowers and details to go on the cake in advance.

Day 4 - Branding

Some of you will already know that I am changing my business name at the end of this month and I think my new name is more fitting for what I make now and I can’t wait until the 1st April when I can finally tell you all and share my new logo and branding.

However for now, here is my current branding. My logo is on my business cards, flyers and even on stickers which go on each order box.
