“Again, I’m still taking this all in, but I think a Sweet Cravings Bakery on Wheels is coming. For my wholesale side, I’m praying God will direct my path and send me a mentor, someone that could walk me through putting my wholesale bakery cakes into a store like Walmart, where I can have my grandmothers faces on the packaging.”
