Meet The Independent Business: Eaton Patisserie

What inspired you start your business?

I’ve always had a passion for desserts and have always wanted to be my own boss, so I decided to start my own business as I have full control over creativity and different flavours and textures.

How did you learn how to bake?

I started to learn to bake when I was 5 (my Nan taught me and I always had to stand on a step to reach the counter) I then realised how much I loved it and wanted it to be a career later on in the future. I decided to then study hospitality and catering and school and progress on to college doing level 2 and 3 specialising in Patisserie and confectionery.

What’s your favourite cake?

I don’t really have a favourite cake to make. However, if I had to pick, it would be more fine patisserie such as opera cake (layers of almond sponge cake soaked in coffee syrup, layered with ganache and coffee french buttercream)

What are you loving most about your journey of the business?

What I love most about it is meeting new people and customers (at the market) and creating new products and seeing how fast my business is progressing.

What piece of advice would you give another young person wanting to start a business?

The advice I would give is that you need the dedication and passion for the type of business they’re wanting to build. Also, being prepared to work long unsocial hours and to realise that not all of it is bad, you will always get a reward at the end if you work hard enough.

What’s the best piece of advice you have been given?

The best piece of advice that I’ve been given is to never give up or never take things to personally as working with the public can be difficult although rewarding most of the time.

What’s the vision for your business?

My vision is that next year I will be moving into a unit or shop with a member of staff working for me and who knows in the future…there may be a chain of Eaton Patisseries!
