I have been quite a busy bee with non stop vintage fairs every weekend to bake for. I will be in Hull this weekend for a Artisan Market (something I should start baking for tomorrow!) . I really stopped to think about how far i've come since all those little baking posts I use to do on here. I rather miss those days I use to bake for fun and for family! But with the cake business starting to outgrow my little home kitchen I really have been thinking about seriously looking into opening my dream tea room recently and its not been easy to find one! I have been selling my cakes at fairs for so long and although I love it I think it may just be time to find a real base and take it to the next level.
A friend of mine made a really good point the other day. She said 'If you wanted to solely bake for a living then I wouldn't open a business. Go and work for someone else'
I replied, 'Thats the thing, I cannot wait to be able to employ someone to bake my recipes so I can have more time to put my heart and soul into making my brand a success'
And I think that says it all in a nutshell. I love baking but its the business as a whole I want to have because otherwise I would just apply for a cake bakers job!
I did come across this one tea room to let today in Bridgnorth which use to have a 1940's type theme to it. I'm not sure why it shut down because its in a really busy area but I do have some ideas. I love all things vintage but I do think there is a fine line between old and dated. It would need some over hauling but could be a good little location!
The search continues!
