I participated in my first vendor tasting. The kitchen incubator I belong to invited clients like myself that has a small food business to show big-name area vendors our wares.
I thought this was a good opportunity to show what The Pastry Prophet can do. I emailed the director to sign up to present a fan favorite — Gluten Free Cupcakes. I know cupcakes are becoming passe, but people who need to have gluten free food told me it’s one of the best cakes they have ever tried.
Obviously there are people who cannot or choose not to indulge in wheat flours, nuts, sugar, or animal products. Why should they be penalized because of it? I say they should not. That’s why I’m so proud that people who need gluten-free items are so delighted by my cakes.
I scheduled the day off from my day job and planned my pastry battle.
The night before I started to freak out. I sat in my car thinking perhaps I should cancel. What am I doing?
Don’t worry. I got over it.
|Come at me bro … and try a cupcake!|
That said, I am very appreciative of the help I received. I felt like a little lost lamb and the Executive Director worked her magic to make all the participants appear their very best. I watched her in awe. I aspire to be the business woman that she is. I know it won’t happen overnight, but it’s a goal.
