I'm a big believer in doing what makes you happiest, and frankly, baking cupcakes all the damn time would make me the happiest. However, I also believe that money CAN buy happiness, so until I can make an annual salary following my passion, I'm keeping my day job.
That said, The Cupcake Lady is my foray into self-employment. It's a simple concept (I have no idea if it's simple, that's just a thing people say): I'm The Cupcake Lady. You hire me to come to your event (i.e., party, shower, graduation, etc.) and I'll bring all the goods for a hands-on baking lesson. I'll teach you and your guests how to bake and decorate cupcakes in any flavor you choose. At the end, everyone gets their own self-decorated cupcake and a recipe card to take home! Fun, right?? Yeah, I thought so, too.
If you're in the D.C. area and you'd like to hire The Cupcake Lady for an event, shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*HUGE thanks once again to Meg O. for the design of The Cupcake Lady site and all the branding that went along with it!
