Amazing Mom Feature: Christina & Sarah- Sinful & Delicious Cupcakes

Ok ladies it's time to have our cake & eat it too! I am so glad to have come across this week's feature business because it's comprised of an amazing Mother- Daughter team who are turning their passion and time spent together into a beautiful, edible, delicious business venture! 

For the past 2 years, daughter Christina and Mom Sarah have been crafting beautiful cakes & cupcakes (check out their giant cupcakes!) from scratch, using wholesome ingredients- including homemade vanilla extract. There are so many things I love about this venture, but I really appreciate their dedication to simple & natural ingredients. As Christina says, "there is nothing better than real food and we are so happy we can provide that; we believe everyone deserves fresh, real, great tasting food". I couldn't agree more.

"100% self taught", these ladies are proof that if you have the vision, your work will speak for itself. Using their friends and families as willing guinea pigs, Christina and Sarah started turning their hobby into a money maker. They have even created their own flavours, not found anywhere else. Their work is stunning, and I hope you will join me in supporting this bourgeoning business. What better way to work, than by spending more time with your Mom?! Read on to get to know their business a little better...

What kind of products and/ or services do you offer? 

We offer Custom Cakes, Giant Cupcakes and Cupcakes all made from scratch using great quality ingredients. We use real fruit for our fruit fillings, we make our own Vanilla Extract using vanilla bean pods and we make our own pastry creams.

What is the price point? 

Prices all depend on size (how many people it needs to feed) Design/Difficulty and whether they would like fondant or iced.

How long have you been operating and how did you start? 

We have been doing this for a little under 2 years. My mom and I started it to spend more time together.

How did you decide what to do? 

We decided to give it a shot because it was something we really enjoyed to do. Something about putting a smile on the faces of the people we make the cakes etc for was soo worth it to us.

What is your favourite part of what you do? What is the biggest challenge? 

My favourite part? Honestly, everything. I love working with the clients and finding out their likes and dislikes and their visions. Designing the cakes and making them. Everything is awesome!!

Any advice to other ladies/ moms looking to start their own business? 

Do it. Have faith in yourself and never let anybody tell you that you can't do it. If there is something in life that you enjoy doing, do it. Nobody wants to wake up in the morning and go to a job they hate! Do lots of research, read books about starting your own business etc.

Prices start at $20 for a dozen cupcakes (chocolate & vanilla, without decoration); $30 for gourmet cupcakes (Vanilla Bean Coconut, White Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Orange, among others, without decoration); $50- $55 for giant cupcakes (feeds 12); cakes priced based on size, details etc.
