A year ago I decided to make it a full time business when I got fired from my corporate job while I was 5 mos pregnant. So I started making cakes for family/ extended family events which caught the taste buds of people i didn’t know. I feel in love with it just making people’s ideas come to life thru cake. Even tho we went from 2 income home to 1 for a while my business started to pick up. Since then I have started a blog and more vendor events. This as given more time to spend with my family and kids and still be able to do what I love. And my family support is amazing. I wouldn’t change it for the world. Twelve Gate Cupcakes is my baby #7 and I love it.”
