This month I have been in business 10 years. Its hard to believe.

When I started I had the idea of incorporating my art with cakes for dogs. There were and are many companies selling cakes but I had a few basic ideas for my dog cakes.

They had to be made fresh from scratch and sugar free,

and with no money to open a dog bakery, I had to ship them through the mail.

I started my research on dog friendly recipes and wanted to know who my competition was. It took a few months....I also needed to learn how to bake...that took a little longer ;P

If I can do this right and make enough to pay my bills I can quit my server job and make dog cakes for the rest of my life!! That would be awesome.

So I went every Sunday for about 6 weeks to a flea market in the city. I rented a table for $3 and a chair for $1 and sat there with my 3 dog cake dummy samples, some business cards and waited for the crowd to bombard me with questions and pre orders!


What happen was almost nothing until one day...a woman asked a few questions, and like a kid emptying the contents of his pockets, there were different denominations of wrinkled paper money and coins. It added up to $28.00. She said, can you deliver Monday, its my dogs birthday? I live one block over? OF COURSE!

Not sure how, but I packed up fast and starting working on my first dog cake order. it was exciting. I never forgot my first order.

These are two of the dog cake dummy samples I brought to the flea market. I never shared these before for obvious reasons. lol

Life is about experience and these cakes took me to where I am today...10 years later.

The first year I made $700....thank God I was still waiting on tables :) I love the process, challenge and reward of making someone's day because they wanted to celebrate their dogs birthday. Happy Birthday Doggies! WOOF!
