Things started to happen! Lexus event, Key 103 with the Hairy Bikers & I made the FA’s 150th Anniversary cake.
This was the cake that changed my whole career, a life size dress. This was made the first week of moving into my first shop Bury Old Road, Prestwich. I was featured in all the local press & the cake on the stage at Intu Trafford Centre. Say YES and figure it out later! Im proof that it works.
My first proper real shop!! I remember being told it was a £3000 deposit and I didn’t even have £30 at the time….. the only way to afford it was to live above. 2 box rooms (1 adult & 2 kids). We have the funniest memories & this was our first Christmas there.
2015 Is when I really started believing in myself. I had the shop for around 6 months before I could afford to open it. Virgin Start Up kindly loaned me £9k, made me an ambassador, I met Sir Richard & had lunch at his house!
I opened my warehouse. I actually own an industrial size mixer & ovens #life goals
Ramsbottom opened. A little cake boutique in the heart of Ramsbottom.
School of Zara Cakes is coming and I’m travelling across the Uk to teach.
