I am dedicating this post to introducing the reader to Summer Drake of Drake’s Cakes. (I love the rhyming name).
Summer ia a former student of mine who graduated from Apollo High School in 2005. Back then, once a student graduated it was very rare to ever connect with them. But with the advent of social media, that is no longer the case. I was very happy to reconnect with Summer on Facebook.
Summer was posting the amazing pictures of cakes on her page. All sorts of cakes, from cupcakes to fairy tale cakes, to Hello, Kitty cakes. Summer had gone into the cake making business. She became her own cake boss-ette, so to speak. What I also noticed is the excitement Summer has for making and decorating these baked delights. It is always nice to find someone with a great enthusiasm for what they are doing.
I asked her if she did wedding cakes. At the time she hadn’t but that was her ultimate goal with her business. It’s also nice when someone achieves one of their business goals. A couple of weeks ago, Summer posted with much deserved pride a picture of her first wedding cake.
Summer and I both have in common that we are in the early stages of our new business enterprises. I can appreciate some of the difficulties in securing new business and new clients for our services. With that in mind, I wanted to take this opportunity on my blog to introduce the reader and potential client to Summer’s business; DRAKE’S CAKES.
I have posted 5 sample pictures of her creations. For a complete look at all the wonderful items she has baked, check out DRAKE’S CAKES’ Facebook page HERE.
There has been this big push recently about patronizing small, independent businesses. So here’s your chance. If you need a baked good for a party or gathering, rather than running to a big chain grocery story, try out a cake from DRAKE’S CAKES.
Enjoy the pictures, check out the Facebook link. As for me, I am looking forward to the wedding I photograph that has a wedding cake by Summer. I’d like that very much.
