Grace’s Sweet Idea
If you’ve got a sweet tooth, then 12-year-old Grace Clarke may just have the answer for you! The Gregory Hills student has just started her own business, Grace’s Sweets, where she sells her very own cupcakes, slices and delicious treats that she bakes herself.
Grace started her business this year, after finding out about the local Bubs to Tweens Indoor Market.
“She has been helping me bake since she was a little girl, but the past couple of years she has been baking and decorating all on her own. When the opportunity came up, Grace was very excited to have the chance to actually start selling her cupcakes. This is her dream” said Kylie Clarke, Grace’s mother to the Oran Park Gazette.
The talented kidpreneur bakes all her products from scratch. There are no preservatives or additives, just fresh ingredients like real eggs and milk. She also makes dairy free and egg free/vegan items on request.
“I am so proud of the passion, pride and commitment Grace puts into her business. Seeing her speak confidently and engaging with her customers is impressive. I see the hours she puts in and the juggles between school and other commitments, but she never gives up or gives half an effort. She is committed to making sure her treats are always made to a high standard” said Kylie.
“I really enjoy baking and decorating and meeting and speaking to new people. I love the expression on people’s faces when they bite into their sweet treats, the positive feedback I get and especially the returning customers” beamed Grace.
“Grace would love to continue to take orders and create desserts for people in her community. She is always trying to learn new things to improve her skills in creating new and exciting designs and products” ended Kylie.
