1. Start Cupcake Business

 (Caramel, Caramel)
(Almond, Vanilla Chai) 
I used to be someone who was terrified of baking. Kal did most of the baking at home and I did most of the eating. Things changed this summer thanks to the coffee shop. I talked Jewel into selling cupcakes at the store and they were a huge hit. We had a lot of fun experimenting with flavors and designs. I became so fascinated by the way cupcakes were designed.

In order to save money, I decided that I would make the cupcakes for our wedding (I must be crazy). I started to toy around with the idea of starting my own cupcake business but it sounded ridiculous when I said it out loud. Since cupcakes are a big trend, I thought I could be somewhat successful for Nebraska weddings/events and most importantly I would be cheaper than what professionals charge.
I certainly don't plan on making a living off of this, but I am going to give it a try. It's kind of like the wedding blog--I could fail miserably, but I think I have enough drive to make it work...even if it takes a while. My test run will be my own wedding! That could be great promotion :)
If you have an event/graduation/wedding coming up, consider me! Since I'm a beginner I'll be charging close to nothing.
I'm also in need of some sweet name ideas!
