Cake Design by Shay

Finding Hidden talents in the midst of the Pandemic

COVID has been a blessing and a curse. With many losing jobs and others being put on furlough, we have seen an influx of creativity and new businesses come alive.

Being a creative, having worked in Graphic Design and Sales, it was very easy to fall into the logical side of business life with no actual creative outlet.

Finding Creativity During the Pandemic

After being made redundant at the beginning of lock-down, stay at home mom of a then 8 month old became my new job.

Working hard is all I personally have ever known. In this case, it has been an eye opener, in this case, discovering hidden talents.

Besides blogging, which is a full-time commitment in itself, the best creative outlet so far has been my new found hobby of cake decorating.

If you have been following the blog from a while you would have seen a previous POST of my daughters first birthday cake. Due to the pandemic we made a decision to make the cake myself to save money which resulted in a really positive feedback!

Consequently, I recently received my first cake order. This is a 3 layer Vanilla cake with Vanilla buttercream and white chocolate candy bits. Overcoming the challenges of smoothing the ombre and creating the drip effect were first of many accomplishments to come.

To Summarize, Life is really what you make it. Everyone has a talent its about utilizing the time given to discover a new hobby or what could possibly a new business venture.

  1. Shay,

    I know your relationship with writing, but let me tell you something… YOU HAVE A DAMN GIFT (well, many gifts)! This post has allowed us to have a sneak peek into the more personal aspects of your life that some of us may not have known about. It was very candid but also inspiring and I loved reading it, to be honest, I was upset when I got to the end.

    Seeing the blog come to life after our months of talking is truly inspiring, and sis, the cake is awesomeness, and if I hadn’t known that you were a novice, I would have sworn you were a pro.

    You have shown me that WE have the power to do anything we put our mind and hearts into and for that I will always be grateful. Keep dropping these gems Shay, we need it.
