Hi, I’m Kirsty!
The ex-baking business owner turned designer and sharing or tips and tricks for fellow bakers.
YOU'RE A BAKER, NOT A GRAPHIC DESIGNER
You love to create edible masterpieces to delight your customers and you want nothing more than to share your skills (and cakes) with as many people as possible!
You deserve have a flourishing business, which means growing a solid reputation and stand out brand that will set you apart and allow you to shine above the rest.
Learning Photoshop to design a logo is expensive and confusing. Getting your head around business card templates is making your head spin. Grappling with free web-builders is scrambling your brain.
Step away from the computer and get back to your bowls and spatulas. I'm here to help!
I've been where you are and with the many hours is takes to bake and decorate a beautiful cake, it is difficult to justify time spent on getting your business branding in shape.
I would love to work with you so please check out out my design packages below and get in touch if you're ready to take your cake business to the next tier! (pun intended)
I have been creatIve my whole life. When I was little drawing, painting and colouring were my favourite pastimes and at school art and design my favourite subject.
This love of design, along with some technical and mathematical ability, led me to study architecture at the Glasgow School of Art and, after a gruelling 6 years, I obtained my Degree and Diploma in Architecture. I went on to work in the field for a few years but my heart was never in it and I longed to use my skills in a different way. This is where my journey takes a bit of a turn...
In March 2014 I decided to quit my job as an architectural assistant to move home to Inverness and set up a home baking business called Ever So Sweet. I spent a year baking furiously in my kitchen for private orders, food fairs and events. It was a lot of fun and I learned a lot about small businesses through trial and error, meeting other owners and through my customers.
Web design is something I have always been interested in. Back in high school me and my friend started a website dedicated to our favourite wrestlers (yes, I said wrestlers!) on Geocities! Also, throughout my baking business days I had kept a food blog, designing all of the logos and images and tweaking themes to suit my design.
So here I am today with Bake this Happen where I hope to help people like me start their journey into cake/cupcake/macaron/*insert other delicious home-baked good here* business owning success.
Whether its a new logo, a slick user friendly website or just some business advice, I am here to help and I look forward to getting to know you!
