It’s never too early to learn about starting one’s own business, and it helps when the product is something flavorful and delicious to satisfy the customer’s sweet tooth.

Four-year-old Sky Hatton of Columbia is learning the ropes of entrepreneurship, and with great success, after recently founding her own baking company, Sky’s Cupcakes, along with her parents James Jr. and Yolanda Hatton, and her grandmother, Sharmnitta Hatton.

After just a few months of creating fun and unique ideas, the business already has a growing customer base, and their cupcakes were a popular item sold at this year’s Maury County Fair.

In addition to taking orders directly by calling (931) 255-3169, Sky’s Cupcakes can be found at Bubba Gandy Seafood and Tallgrass Meat. Co., as well as Amber Falls Winery every other Saturday.

“We put a lot of time into making these cupcakes, creating the designs and making them homemade, never frozen or store bought,” James Hatton Jr. said. “We don’t use any cake mix, which is a little more expensive to make, but we want to make sure people are getting a good product. Even the icing is made from scratch.”

Sky’s love for baking began when she would watch cooking shows like Rachel Ray, Martha Stewart and “Cupcake Wars” on the Food Network, working alongside her grandmother in the kitchen and coming up with new ideas. Pretty soon the idea came about to start her own business and bring her tasty creations to the community.

“We’ve sold so many that we ran out of boxes last week,” Hatton said. “The sales are really high right now, between selling at the fair and taking calls. We had more calls than we expected, but we are prepared now to meet all orders.”
