I’ve loved baking and decorating cakes since I was very young, but it wasn’t until later in life that I considered pursuing it as a career.
After seeing a football themed birthday cake I made for my son, a friend asked me to make her son’s birthday cake. Another friend saw it and asked me to make a cake for her son. I got more and more requests for cakes and cupcakes, so I decided to start a bakery business.
In October of 2012, I was given an amazing opportunity and was invited to sell my gourmet cupcakes in a new “goodie” shop opening in Center Point, IA. If you have an opportunity, please stop by O’Brien’s Own Gourmet Goodies (207 Franklin St.) for a cup of coffee, a dish of ice cream, an amazing bag of O’Brien’s Own Gourmet Granola or maybe even a cupcake!
