On the 5th October 2010, Oxford Cupcakes was born! I had spent the previous few months testing recipes, learning new decorating skills and generally preparing for what I hoped was going to be a successful, small business.
It very quickly grew much bigger than I expected, and I found myself thoroughly enjoying running my own business! One year on and I can easily say it was the best decision I ever made, and I have loved the last year. I still get the same thrill when I get an order through, I love planning new designs and my favourite part is going out and meeting customers at food fairs & craft shows.
I just want to say a massive thank you to all those that have supported me on this journey, whether it be through buying cupcakes from me, giving me amazing advice on Twitter or just general support from my friends & family.
Let’s hope every year is as successful as the last has been!
