What does your company do?

We specialise in mini designer cakes and custom big cakes

What is your biggest success?

My biggest achievement was to finally live my dream and create cake art that doesn't just look esthetically pleasing to the eye, but cakes that blows your mind when you bite into it. I am humbled that I started Sassy Bakes as a hobby and it turned into more than I could have dreamed of. Showcasing our cake art on television on some of South Africa's best television shows, being aired on so many of our local radio stations and having the most amazing response from all who tastes our product.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle was turning my passion into a business, I faced so many challenges as we were not ready for the load that was awaiting us, I had to work endless hours to meet my clients needs as our baking equipment was just your bare and basic kitchen equipment, so when we invested in more ovens and baking equipment the hurdle then turned into one of our biggest achievements
