I always loved to cook for friends and family, my mom always told me I should have my own little restaurant, even though I’m pretty sure it was just a mischievous incentive to get me cooking more often around the house rather than career guidance… But you know what? I always liked the idea of owning a food business and turning my passion for cooking into a full-time business. Who knows, right? The future is what you make of it, and tomorrow is the first step towards your dreams. Literally. Tomorrow evening I’m attending a Running a Food Business from Home, and I’m SO excited about it!
If you always wanted to take your cooking and/or baking skills to another level, or if you always dreamed of having your own restaurant / stall, Ms.Cupcake, besides having the most scrumptious cupcakes I’ve ever eaten – which are vegan by the way – they often run workshops and classes.
“Ms. Cupcake started her business in her home kitchen in south London in 2010. She wanted to change her career but didn’t have the first clue about how to do it. Sound familiar? Ms. Cupcake has developed the class she wished she could have taken when starting out!
This information-packed 2 hour seminar led by Mellissa Morgan (aka Ms. Cupcake) will educate and motivate you to get your business off the ground!”
