Carolyn Sevos ran a technology firm for more than a decade but when one of her computer programmers couldn’t find the picture perfect cake for her son’s birthday Carolyn came up with an idea that is sweetly blossoming into a second business.
Carolyn pulled from her technology background and came up with a software program that would allow her to create custom designed cakes. The software program creates all types of custom toppers for cakes, cookies and and even cupcakes. The imagery and details she has created are precise, right down to the meticulous lines on a cookie’s QR code which can be scanned before its eaten. If you’re looking for a special cookie or cake “You cake” will print any custom design on edible paper on a food grade printer using edible inks. And if you want to get really artsy, they even sell”do it yourself” cookie coloring party kits.
While the cookies and cakes have been a big hit with children. The edible items have grown in popularity for adults. Many companies are finding the cookies to be a great way to brand themselves at trade shows, promotional events and other gatherings. Right now carolyn has set up shop at a local incubator which provides low cost office space for budding entrepreneurs. She says the support has been fantastic.
