One week ago today, I nervously clicked “Submit” on my first blog post and my new Facebook page promoting Karmic Sweets at the same time. It was one of the scariest moments of my life. However, I’m really glad that I did it, because a week later, I’m already at 80+ likes, I’ve completed my first official order and I already have 6 other orders booked. I’m completely in awe!
Over the past year, friends and family have encouraged me and pushed me to promote my baking, but I was scared. Would I actually get orders? Would people like my cakes? Could I actually do this? What about the costs? What if I failed? All these doubts floated around in my head and kept me from pursuing a dream.
Now that I’ve done it, I still have butterflies, but in a good way. I’ve received so many positive messages from friends and family (even my high school French teacher) that I know I’ve done the right thing. I took a chance and even though I don’t know what the future holds, I do know that as of right now, this is exactly where I’m suppose to be.
I will be eternally grateful for all of the love and support I received over the past week because it helped clear some of the doubts I had all this time. That being said, I can only hope that at some point, I will be able to offer the same type of encouragement to someone who is also trying to pursue their dream because it truly is one of the best feelings in the world!
So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for all the love and support. I can only hope to return the favour or, at the very least, bake you a treat 🙂
And now, without further ado, I present to you my first “official” order of 2016 : Frozen-themed cupcakes with one small chocolate cake for the birthday girl :
