|Our business - Owl and the PussyCat Cakes|
A few years ago, I decided to take a cake decorating class as a "Mom's night out" New Year's Eve resolution. I had a coworker who made the most amazing cakes and I knew I could do the same, given some time. Over time, my hobby grew into a home business, with my husband being the primary baker and me doing the decorating work in the evenings after work. We were part of local farmer's markets, sold wholesale at two different local stores, and made hundreds of birthday cakes, grooms cake, and wedding cakes.
We were in operation for about two years, but the demand of my jobs and the kids schedules has caused us to back off a bit. We currently only makes cakes and cupcakes for charities like Birthday Wishes, Icing Smiles, and Cakes Against Cancer for Kids, as well as the occasional for friends and family. Perhaps life will calm down to the point where Owl and the PussyCat Cakes becomes busy again, but for now I'm happy to have it as a hobby.
