Get this

I read this great story about a woman who started a fancy snow cone business out of an old renovated trailer in Kansas City, featured on DesignSponge today.






Holy INSPIRING.

For about the past year the idea of opening a bakery has been on my mind. There is really nothing that makes me happier than seeing someone bite into some kind of pastry I've made and making them smile. Sends me to the moon.

Well, the idea of finding the perfect location for a store front and the idea of all that start-up expense literally drains all of the desire to take the leap out of my little soul.



So here is my question: If I got a cute little trailer like this and ran a mobile bakery to your neck of the woods, would you walk down the street for some warm cookies and milk?

I'm not a huge cookies girl, but I do love cake. Serious cake love. So for cake? Yes, yes I would.

I absolutely would. Furthermore, with Mrs. Fields going out of business, there is more room than ever in the market. People are getting tired of cupcakes so I say go for it. Can i request cream puffs, too?

I've only tasted those cupcakes you made for the Cinco de Mayo/Graduation party and from that experience, I would have to say PLEASE open a bakery!

I would walk 500 miles. Then I would walk 500 more... just for some delicious "Katie's Cookies"

Janssen said...

Yes! Well, actually, for some reason I don't think I'd buy _milk_ from a trailer (not sure why, just seems wrong in my mind?), I would FOR SURE come over for just about any type of baked good though.

I live in LA. Please come bring me treats! I'll keep my eye out for ya. ;)

Sare,

I might need that recipe for the molasses cookies back.

I spotted that via design sponge as well and my jaw dropped and I grew green with envy (the good kind of envy...if there is such a thing). Super rad...totally something I would love to do. And I wouldn't even care if I didn't make one sale...

Anth said...

Oh I most certainly would.

Not yes, but HE** YES!
