What helped your decision to go into a business?

My business came about when I was doing cakes for family and friends and just wanted to showcase them on a page for everyone to see.  From there they started to sell.


What is the main focus of your business?

Getting the cakes done for family and friends 🙂  I love doing them when I’m not busy with the kids and calving.

What do you enjoy most about your business?

It’s something for me to do that I can concentrate on fully and have down time while doing it 🙂


If you could give advice to a fellow Farming mum in New Zealand (who wants to start up something herself) what would it be ….


I recommend making a facebook page and growing from there


And now an amazing treat for all of us … Ally has shared with us her super mud cake recipe … so ladies … time to get your bake on ….
