I came to the realisation that we are memory makers recently while working on a business planner called Dream|Plan|Do by the design trust http://www.thedesigntrust.co.uk/ and this fab planner was recommended by my jewllery making friend http://www.kathrynpartington.com/ (check out her work it’s stunning)
“What do you do” ??
For example if your a jeweler who makes wedding and engagement rings you sell love, if your a photographer you capture memories and how someone wants to be seen,you get the idea.
So for me and when I asked myself the question “what do I do” my first thought was “I make and decorate cakes”
But when I really thought about what I do like thousands of Cake makers/ cake designers/ cake decorators I realised we not only create great cakes we also create lovely memories.
Who doesn’t remember their birthday cake or there babies christening cake.
Many clients order cakes to make an impact for a special event or occasion and along with this they want to create a memory that the recipient won’t forget.
I have made Birthday cakes for children and when I go to deliver there cake they always recall the last cake they had or the cake before that.
Wedding cakes are immortalised and play a pivotal part of a wedding day and the memory is captured forever with the cutting of the cake, we as cake professionals have helped create this memory.
Mother’s Day and mums across the land will be receiving cards, flowers, jewelry and of course cakes of which they will love and remember.
With this is in Mind for this Mother’s Day I created a selection of cupcakes and macarons which instead of presenting in my lovely kraft brown boxes I decided to go with something a bit more special and present in a keepsake box to help create a Mother’s Day memory, maybe a box to store Mother’s Day cards in.
So next time your asked “what do you do” just say you help create memories.
