Who I Am And How I Started
I've been baking my entire life and have been told on multiple occasions that I should start a bakery, but that idea TERRIFIED me. I mean, the thought of putting out mediocre baked goods to be judged by everyone was scary. Especially with no formal training in baking or business. Who was I to start something like that?
Fast forward to 2020, we moved back to Kingston from Mississauga so that I could help my parents expand their business and Covid hits. The part of their business that I was going to take over closes down and I'm unemployed with two kids and depressed for the first time in my life.
3 months later, June 2020, I figured I literally had nothing to lose if I started the bakery now. I had no more excuses or I'm too busies, no more i'm not good enoughs, or I don't know what i'm doing, and I think that was the kick in the ass I needed to stop over thinking and just do it. So as difficult of a time as that was, something amazing came out of it and guess what?! I have received an insane amount of community support in this venture and I am SO glad that I took the leap. Here. Now. Exactly when I needed to.
So, I hope you enjoy your Little Pastry Shop experience & treats and check back often because I'm frequently adding new goodies!
