I grew up in the small town of Wagoner, Oklahoma! Our small town is very close-knit and everyone seems like family! The day before my 13th Birthday I was in a severe car accident and was life-flighted to a hospital 50 minutes away. The car I was riding in had been T Boned right in the door I was sitting by! I spent a couple of months recovering in the hospital with not much activity and not a lot of talking since my jaw was wired shut for some period of time. In my long road of recovery, I watched a lot of food network television and absolutely loved the cooking and baking/cake decorating competition shows! There is where my passion began! Thankfully, I fully recovered and a couple of years later my high school teacher challenged me with creating her son's birthday cake! It was a 3 tier pirate ship cake and I accepted! My Mom, my sister, and I spent hours constructing it and we had a blast working together! My teacher loved it and posted a picture to her social media and from them on the orders started rolling in! My mom and sister have helped launch my passion into the business it is today! We come from a family of several successful business owners and have watched our Dad put his hard work into his own business our whole life! We watched our grandma and grandpa with their business, and 2 Uncles turn their small businesses into multi-million dollar companies with their hard work! We are surrounded by great families that give great business advice and can only hope to follow in their footsteps by turning our small family-owned company into a known name where people all over our country will want to visit!
