Baking has always been Megan’s passion. So when she was given an opportunity to open a shop in Shafers Arcade, she jumped at it.
Megan said, “The industry is really big now and it’s really competitive, but it doesn’t worry me. I’ll just try to do the best I can. My goal would be to move into a bigger shop and expand from there. I was overwhelmed on the opening day, it was really busy and I sold out of cupcakes.”
Megan gained a lot of experience in the cupcake business by working at, Love Cupcake & Cheri Bakewells, as a part of her schooling. She said, “They taught me everything, from baking and basic decorating, to general cleaning in the kitchen. I really enjoyed it and learnt the most just by watching what they were doing.”
