We had the good fortune of connecting with Rochelle Garcia and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rochelle, every day, we about how much execution matters, but we think ideas matter as well. How did you come up with the idea for your business?
It was in 2017 after I had my son Jayden. My partner at the time was working double shifts just to provide for my family while i took care of our newborn son. When my son was about 6 months old i wanted to start helping support my family but I couldn’t find a job due to careless choices I made as a younger adult. I had always watched sugar rush (a television show about baking) so I slowly jumped the gun. I started making cupcakes and cake pops for about 8 months and realized I had gained a lot of customers. In December of 2018 I made my first cake and since then I knew in my heart baking Cakes was a passion that I wanted to pursue with everything I had in me. I believe the not so good choices I made as a younger adult actually pushed me to find my hidden talent , like “a blessing in disguise”

My Children. My children are what keeps me going everyday. My toddler Jayden he is so amazed when he sees my commercial fridge full of different cakes. My daughter Gabriella she is so supportive and she will even help make fondant figures even if it’s at 2 am. I am very thankful for my children
