Treats that appear as great as they taste
As several good companies are, Georgia’s Sweet Shoppe was born out of a want to make a living from a beloved hobby. For Georgia Madison Smartt, that appreciate was baking and decorating.
Madison, as she’s additional frequently identified locally, mentioned, “I’ve normally baked with my mom. I grew up in the kitchen with her and in higher college I began playing about additional with decorating. I continued on by means of college and my mom and my boyfriend actually pushed me to attempt to sell Mother’s Day cakes 3 years ago. From there, it just went crazy. For nearly two years it is been my complete-time business enterprise.”
When asked what sort of response her business enterprise has garnered, Madison mentioned, “I cannot quit. It actually is just non-quit. Holidays are large. Most of the time about the holidays, I am up all evening operating on orders. But birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and other points keeps me going year-round,” Madison mentioned.
That sounds like sufficient to preserve everyone busy and, for the most portion, Madison is handling the workload on her personal. “It really is quite a lot just me. I have assistance from my loved ones and my boyfriend but I am the primary baker, decorator, social media, advertising, all of that,” she mentioned.
Even though Georgia’s Sweet Shoppe delivers all sorts of baked goods, a couple of products are most regularly requested. “On a weekly basis, I push out a lot of decorated sugar cookies and cakes. Other than that, I do cupcakes, drop cookies, brownies, blondies and I am beginning to do chocolate covered pretzels and Oreos,” Madison stated.
In addition to baking scrumptious goodies, Madison requires unique pride in her experience at decorating her treats. I was particularly delighted that she brought a specially customized St. Patrick’s Day cookie to our interview. I can attest it was as tasty as it was quite. “I attempt to do something everyone throws at me when it comes to decorating and I figure it out as I go,” Madison mentioned.
