Today is the official release date of my debut book ‘Cakes, Bakes & Business’. The practical guide to starting your home baking enterprise.
I am so excited about this. It has been a long time in the making and I am so so proud of it and cannot wait for you all to read it, I hope you love it as much as I do!
I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has followed my work, made my recipes, used my advice, read my stories. If you’ve been here since the beginning, joined me in the past few years or only saw my page this week, none of this would have been possible without you. I stared She Who Bakes as a way of expressing myself, and working through my depression and anxiety after I lost my mum. Baking and writing about my baking journey saved my life, there’s no doubt about that, and for that I will be forever grateful. I started my blog which transformed into something I never imagined. I moved into the world of business and started my cake career which has been successfully running for years. Putting it all into words and passing on my advice, tips, tricks and stories along the way has been an absolute joy to write.
Back in 2015, I started writing a series of blog posts on how to start a cake business from home. It was a question I had been asked on a weekly basis for such a long time that I wanted to do my best to help people and answer it. I started writing and realised with all of the information I wanted to share, it was bigger than a blog post. On the advice of Tim and my very good friend Jemma from Iced Jems, I turned my post into an ebook. Then, two years later, in the summer of 2017, HypnoArts Publishing wanted to work with me to turn it into a real life book. I worked for months on it. I tripled the content, introduced brand new chapters, added lots of stories and many more pages of help and advice to turn it into a brand new for 2017 updated version which is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to make money from their cakes and bakes.
I want to say a massive thank you to Jon & Jane from HypnoArts for believing in me and working with me on this project which I’m so very proud of. I want to say thank you to Jemma, without whom, the idea for the book wouldn’t have existed in the first place. I want to thank my mum, it breaks my heart that she will never see this book but I do it all in her memory and am grateful every day for everything she taught me. Finally, I want to thank Tim. My fiancé, my partner in crime, my everything. His love and support mean the absolute world to me and he inspires me every day.
So! If you or someone you know wants to start their own cake career, just like I did, check out my new book Cakes, Bakes & Business!
