If you have been hanging out with me on Brooklyn Active Mama since the beginning you would know that I had my own cupcake business. I joke now that each of my children birthed something inside of me and my middle child is responsible for my love of baking–particularly cupcakes.
For a while I was experimenting with all kinds of different cupcakes. I was baking all flavors, colors, alcohol infused, fillings, different sized cupcakes–you name it. Cupcake wars was watched religiously and even took notes from the super popular show.
I scoured Pinterest for more and more recipes while I did middle of the night feedings. I made several dozen A DAY. My husband would even take them to work with him. Needless to say he was the most popular guy on the job.
I started getting paid requests to make cupcakes for weddings, birthday parties and so much more. I branded myself with labels, stamps and professional boxes. The orders were a nice income supplement while I was on maternity leave from my corporate job. I even had visions of opening up my own little cupcake shop in Brooklyn.
Unfortunately the demands of being promoted at work, having a newborn and a 3 year old caught up to me rather quickly. I had to shutter the business because I was simply too exhausted to come home and bake after a long day of commuting, working and mothering.
I never stopped baking for myself though! Cupcakes are still so much fun, and the creativity can truly be endless. I still bake for my kids events at school! I don’t do it because I want to impress–but because baking is a happy place for me so I take every opportunity to flex that muscle.
