My Grandma Betty
A grandmother's love is un-ending. She loves many,
cares for most, and will do just about anything for
anyone. My cake baking and decorating skills all
started in my Grandma Betty's kitchen. From rolling
cookie dough balls to helping make Chistmas candy,
Grandma taught me how to do it all. I held my first
decorator bag at two-years-old. Grandma let me practice
on her cookie sheets for years and taught me how to make
borders, designs, fonts, and so much more.
State SAE Ag Sales Entreprenuership
I learned from her for many years until I started 4-H. Then I started
learning from my judges and the people around me. My skills
were great and I had many cakes that made it to State Fair
and earned many blue ribbons. When I entered highschool, I entered FFA.
In four years, I went from making cakes for just family to making
cakes as a business. In my Senior year of highschool I received the
second place plaque in the Agriculture Sales Entreprenuership SAE at the state
level for my cake business.
My Mom and I
Last fall I became a student at Graceland University. I have
kept my cake business strong even though I am very busy
with school work, student life, and cheerleading. I am very
involved in my college and am anticipating the summer when
I will be working for the Decatur County 4-H Extension Office
My Personal Business Card
It is my dream to one day own a homegrown bridal business.
I would like to call it Truly Blessed Occasions, because I
would love to do other events in addition to weddings.
I hope to specialize in cakes, gowns, and photography.
Without the continuous support of my Grandma Betty, my parents,
other relatives, my friends, and my clients, none of this would
be possible. I thank the Lord everyday for the blessings he has
given me and the talents he has allowed me to utilize. It is
at this point in my life that I realize that I am Truly Blessed.
