Let's Congratulate nobakecakes AND FrivolTees, this week's winners!

We had such wonderful treasuries this week that even you couldn't choose between them! For the first time ever, we have a tie between two winners!

I'll be featuring No Bake Cakes today AND FrivolTees tomorrow!

I asked Mona, owner of No Bake Cakes to tell me a bit about herself and her shop.

'Creativity has always been a part of my make-up. It always amazes me to see what my two hands can accomplish. Diaper cakes and towel cakes came about purely by chance. My son outgrew his diapers very quickly, and I hated letting the extra diapers go to waste. [I] thought [diaper cakes] would be a good way to pass the diapers on to someone else. After making a couple of cakes to give away, my husband said, “You could sell those!”.'

'[My cakes] are practical as well as pretty. I take everyday items that people need and use and transform them into something pretty that can be displayed. Afterwards, [the cake] can be taken apart [to use individual pieces].'

'I really enjoy making the towel cakes. I think there are so many occasions that can be celebrated with towel cakes aside from the often thought of wedding. They make great [gifts for] birthdays, graduations, housewarmings, Mother’s day, hostess gifts, or even just because.'

'When I make my cakes I try to think what [people] might like or use. But mostly I think my cakes embody the word fun. I find inspiration from my family and friends. They are so encouraging. My mom has been one of my biggest supporters. She is a big part of the shop. She is the one who creates the amazing aprons you see for sale along with the cakes.'

'Currently, I am a stay at home mom of two amazing children, ages 4 ½ and 16 months. I would love to see my business successfully develop to full-time by the time they are both in school.'

Help Mona realize her business dreams by checking out No Bake Cakes!
