There’s one in every office. The person who loves to bake. The one who makes wonderful cakes for everyone’s birthday. I was that person. There was the cat cake for a woman who adored her cats, the toolbox for the retiring engineer, and my all time favourite, the box of popcorn cake for a girl who would regularly sit down at her desk with a bag of microwave popcorn. I loved the joy it gave to members of my team. Every time someone had a birthday, everyone (including people from surrounding offices) would tiptoe into our filing room to sneak a peek at the cake I had created. It caused a stir and was a surprise that everyone couldn’t wait for.
My love of cakes grew as did my skills but after leaving my corporate job for the world of baking it felt like there was something missing. I was no longer content with making Batman cakes and wedding cakes. I turned my attention to the world of corporate cakes and Little Birdy Cakes was born. While many were skeptical for pursuing such an untested niche market, I knew we were embarking on something that was bigger than us, something that would give people meaning. I, along with my partner Behar and a great deal of research, crafted and curated a service which provides all the things that I loved about making cakes for my team but without the hassle. The excitement, the surprise, and at the end of it all, a tasty cake. I now spend my days working with businesses who share similar values and who are not content to just clock in and clock out every day.
Celebration is at the heart of people coming together as a community. Businesses who celebrate together develop a stronger culture and sense of belonging. This in turn results in better productivity and dollars to the bottom line. Using Little Birdy Cakes as my vehicle, I want to help businesses come together as a group to celebrate their staff, their successes and their clients.
Now, not only do I get to do what I love every day, but I get to share in my customers’ successes.
At Little Birdy Cakes we like to spread the spirit of celebration and you should to. Our personalised cakes make great gifts for clients and team members, or as a way to help celebrate your business’s success.
