A different take on cake
"One thing must change," they said. That one thing was "EVERYTHING."
So, on my journey through recovery I found hope and a new way of life. With these new freedoms I discovered the gift of baking and my husband and I have started a home baked goods business with an emphasis on cake rolls that we and others find to be absolutely delicious. We hope you do too! We are small business owners with BIG aspirations and We'd be honored to provide you and yours with us and ours."

More about us…..
My husband and I met 27 years ago at South high school which is located on the south side of Columbus. Although we were both from different side of the tracks, I don’t think anyone would argue that each of us were both from the wrong side…
We have both had our fair share of legal troubles and to put it lightly we share in common a jaded past which was a direct result of alcohol and drug abuse. No matter the blame: bad decisions made, society, genetics or environment, we’ve both conceded there was an invisible line that was crossed in regard to drugs and alcohol, a line where the power of choice left and the disease of addiction took over.
With that being said, by our own admission we are both “recovering alcoholics and addicts.” Our stories are lengthy and if you happen to attend a 12 step meeting you may just hear the whole thing.
It is my goal however to create an awareness that although addiction is REAL so is RECOVERY.
This is the side to the addiction piece that often gets overlooked in the headlines. We are regular people, much like yourself I imagine or maybe someone you know and love. We made poor decisions and we are accountable but we can and do recover.
Life is much better on this side of the glass and the business of baking came with our freedom from drugs and alcohol and is but a stepping stone to our real plight…
Upon further growth and development we intend to employ more like us, the ones who need a second chance or even third for that matter and by supporting our business you are indeed supporting recovery.
I’d be remiss not to mention the quality and taste of our products, especially our cake rolls. Our products are home made fresh in our kitchen to order and to top it off, we deliver! The feedback we have received is two thumbs up!!!
We would be truly honored if you chose us as your home baked goods provider.
ADDICTION IS REAL BUT SO IS RECOVERY!
