Then and Now
- Then -
As I grew up, I swapped the lego and playdough for butter and sugar (and all of the other baking essentials that I never conceived as a child) and started baking real cupcakes and treats for my family and friends, in exchange for a treasure chest of beloved memories.
As time went on, my love of baking transformed into a passion and soon into a yearning to have a real cupcake store of my very own; to bake and sell cupcakes and treats for the world to enjoy!
From humble beginnings and big dreams, I started working on making my yearnings a reality. Spurred on by family and friends offering to pay me to bake for their milestones and events, I started a Facebook page called - Nicolettey's Cupcakery. Before I knew it, I had a following of 500+ people who were either ordering from me; challenging me with obscure cupcake design requests (to which I'd happily and impressively oblige); and/or liking and sharing my photos and updates.
With a bit of soul searching and a lot of guts, I left my full-time job as a Communications Analyst and decided to focus on making "Nicolettey's Cupcakery" more than just a page on Facebook.
In the Spring of 2012, I went on an investigative journey to the city that is arguably the birthplace of the current "Cupcake Craze" as we know it - New York, New York! I lived there for 3 months, delving into the NYC cupcake culture, working on my business plan and eating a lot of cupcakes (for research purposes, of course...)
I came back to Brisbane with re-ignited purpose and ambition, a head bubbling over with exciting ideas, and a new business name - Bite Me. Cupcakes & Treats.
