A new year has started and my dream came true....
I have been running my cake business from my lovely cottage in Tortworth for the past 9 years, but my business has grown over the years and I started to take over the house.
My dream one day was to have my own premises where I could bake and decorate my cakes and receive couples to discuss their dream wedding cake. A place I could call work and keep my home life separate.
I have been looking for a premises for a long time, and weighed up the pros and cons of moving the business out of my home. Not a easy decision to make when your are looking at properties. They where either to far away or cost too much.
We have been living on Tortworth estate for the past 10 years and thought I would get in contact with the estate and see if they had any premises in the area. My thinking was it would be closer to home so I wasn't to fare away from the children.
Do you believe in Faith? Well I do and would you believe a property right on my door step came available. I went to see the property and fell in love. My head was filling up with great ideas for this place.
On the 1st of December I got the keys, I was ecstatic!
Work commenced to get the property up and running for the 1st of January, day and night was hard labour getting the place up to a standard to receive clients and be able to bake. A kitchen was installed, a cake decorating room was designed so I would also provide courses to people.
After a month of hard graft, I was ready to open the doors to The Tortworth Cake Lodge.
A location I would only dream of, situated a stone throw away from one of my favourite wedding venues, Tortworth Court. Set in the beautiful country side I couldn't be happier.
This rustic little lodge is my dream, so when you think to yourself that dreams don't come true, be patient they do.
Happy 2019 to you all and look forward to creating your dream wedding cake.
Bye for Now!
