As the first among my friends to embrace motherhood, I found myself navigating a whirlwind of new responsibilities, often feeling isolated and housebound. Seeking a creative outlet during my baby’s nap times, I turned to baking. Little did I know, this decision would lead me to discover my greatest passion and a career.

Baking for my family and friends brought immense joy and fulfillment, fueling my motivation to improve with every cake. Before long, word of mouth spread, and orders began pouring in. Decorating cakes became my form of self-expression, and over time, I honed my unique style, propelling my business to where it stands today.

In 2024, alice + rosa cake design marks its 10th anniversary. Today, I’m grateful to be part of a diverse community of bakers from whom I continue to learn and grow every day. 

Moreover, I’ve found a newfound passion for mentoring women who, like me a decade ago, seek their own voice and dream of creating their own business.
