Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in food and beverage but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Monica Molden, Founder  of She Got Cake Sweets Shoppe LLC, located in Oklahoma City, OK, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business is called SHE GOT CAKE Sweets Shoppe LLC. It's a new business that started this year! I specialize in making delicious sweets like cakes, cupcakes, candy, cheesecakes, cookies, Kool-Aid pickles, galaxy lemonades, etc. My favorite specialization is freehand drawing on cakes! My customers range from babies to adults! (I also make erotic sweets! Ssssshh!) For every order I make, a small portion of the proceeds helps me feed the homeless. I've been doing this off and on for over 7 years, but now I even offer personalized cakes to them because EVERYONE deserves a great birthday!

Tell us about yourself

Hello babes! I'm Monica. I decided to open my sweets shoppe because I loooovvveeee creating something pretty that's also edible! When I was a teenager, I worked at a bakery, and my love for it has stuck around for over 7years! My 4yr old son motivates me each day because I want him never to worry about anything and to KNOW his mama always has his back.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is having repetitive customers use my services! I love them!

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

One of the hardest things is being able to multitask. I buy ingredients, market myself on different platforms, take orders, create art with my sweets, and deliver my sweets. I do all this while taking care of my toddler.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Take your time.
  2. It's okay if you're not bringing in a lot of revenue because word of mouth is priceless, baby!
  3. Take it one day at a time!

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

I love what I do! My goal is to eventually open up a building to allow low-income people and families to celebrate birthdays like they're Beyoncé-rich, darlings!
