What we love most about my job is
is having the freedom to do what we want, we can – and do regularly wake up in the morning and bake I (Paulette) enjoy cooking for friends and family, Colin enjoys DIY and it nice that we can spend a day doing these things if we want to. We have turned our hobbies into a business, that food trends are changing, and we never stop learning. We love that we can change what our business does and how we do it. When the creativity is flowing we would be up till 3am testing Caribbean vegan cake, a savoury fusion spicy beef pie, rum caramel sauce. I (Paulette) & Colin are very sociable, we love that our business allows us to travel to different parts of the country try different Cuisines, meet people from all over the world that try and buy our cakes. It’s a lovely feeling when someone tells you “your cakes are delicious”, “amazing” “the best I have tasted”. Hearing these words motivates us to want to continue baking, leaning and running our family business they we want to.
I am proud when i

People are looking for unique dining experiences the flavours & dishes from the Caribbean fit the bill perfectly. The introduction of street food and Tourism plays a vital role in Caribbean home cooking being made more accessible to people that wouldn’t normally have the pleasure of trying Caribbean food (89% of millennials are open to trying new cuisines they haven’t had before). The tourism industry also has a direct impact on local small business and additionally, significant indirect social benefits. It has created local employment opportunities. This includes employment by hotels, restaurants and leisure industries. Caribbean cuisine is one of the fastest growing industries globally.
