We want to be the first spirit cake truck! Not just 'cause we have the BEST cake but 'cause we want to get closer to the people!
Second time around! I found out I had to have an ankle replacement in the middle of fundraising a year and a half ago. The result of a car accident from 12 years ago. So, we are going to try again! Thanks for your support!
Started in November 2005, Chez Moi is a specialty bakery which offers amazing spirit cakes to a small following during the holidays and throughout the year but needs to build brand awareness to better serve the local population. I would like to obtain a food truck to take to area farmers' markets, festivals and city streets. You'll find out our location by various forms of social media such as Twitter and Facebook. There are so many entree trucks that we'd like to offer an amazing slice of cake to compliment them! Need to cool down? The truck will also offer ice cream sandwichs made out of the rum cake!
Currently, our cakes can be found at Southern Season in Chapel Hill, NC or Papa Mojo's Roadhouse in Durham, NC. We also have plans for a cake mix of our recipe so just in case it's last minute, you can bake your own Chez Moi cake.
Recently, I did an in-store demo in a neighboring city. People from my city wondered why I had ventured away from home for exposure. By getting a food truck on the road, Chez Moi will gain additional customers which will propel this entrepreneurial endeavor forward in my own city. You know I married Durham! :)
The money raised will help pay for a basic food truck along with the signage to begin this new part of Chez Moi's history. The cake truck will be launched March 23rd at 5:30 in front of Full Steam Brewery Durham, NC. Hope to see you there!
Please remember that funding on Kickstarter is always all or nothing. If our project doesn't reach its funding goal, we won't receive any funds. BUT, there's no limit to how much we can raise – projects continue to accept pledges for their entire funding duration. No backers will be charged until the project has been fully funded.
For any of the rewards which include "cakes baked at your location" ($500 reward level) or "tasting party at your location" ($1500 reward level), you would need to be located within approx. 150 miles of Durham, NC. Questions, please ask. Sorry, we are unable to fill international orders at this time.
Thank you for reading about Chez Moi's newest venture and thank you for your support! Please share with your friends!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
A risk/challenge could have been not having a truck ready by the time of the launch. I have secured a truck but need to pay for it. The funds will be used to add the signage and pay for the truck in full. I've planned out the steps needed for this project to hopefully avoid any setbacks. Things do happen but I feel I am well prepared at this time.
Yes, it's a "food truck" but whenever we say that people always say...what type of food...so instead of going thru that...we just call it a "cake truck". LOL
