What makes Pride Enjoy worthy of support-  

Pride Enjoy will be a food company you will be proud to have been a part of. In addition to a creating quality product, I have the knowledge and field experience to make this business run successfully. This is me taking everything I've learned while in baking school, bakery jobs and test kitchen positions and putting it into action. I have a detailed plan and have done my homework on everything from food regulations to suppliers and costing. I am completely devoted to this project and have most components ready to go. I just need your help to make my dream come true. At the end of the day, you'd be making life sweeter for myself and my customers by showing your support and becoming a backer. You will also be taking a stand for products that are chemical, cruelty, and allergen free.

 Funds raised would go toward:  

-use of shared gluten free commercial kitchen  

-initial food (ingredients) order

-uniforms  

-market table, tent, signage...  

-packaging & product labels  

-custom equipment for marking portion cuts  

-chocolate tempering machine  

-certifications (Kosher, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Vegan)  

-insurance  

-lab tests regarding nutritionals and allergens  

-licensing fees  

My initial funding goal of $6,200 won't cover everything, but it sure would be a good start. Exceeding this goal would lead to amazing things for the future of my company.

A little background info-

A few years back I left the stable job that I had my college degree in to pursue something that made me happy instead. Crazy? Some would say "yes", but I'm a true believer in the fact that risk can sometimes pay off big time. Our choices in life affect our whole state of mind and well being. If I wasn't happy, it was up to me to make a change. 

 I set out on a journey of baking and pastry arts exploration. It made me feel alive, and in time that voice inside that second guessed my risky decision was put to rest. I had big goals and was excited to finally find my niche. I even won my fist trophy! I set the bar very high for myself and always took mental notes about what jobs of my superiors entailed. I saw myself one day in their shoes and was determined to reach a high level of success in the field. 

 I did end up reaching a point where I felt my hard work paid off. I landed what I thought was my dream job, only for it to turn into a nightmare and have my world come crumbling down. I guess you can say I'm now a believer the fact that there were bigger and better dreams within the baking field that were waiting for me to chase them. When life gives you lemons, make... rainbow cookies. To have my own business doing something I love certainly takes the cake.

Why Alternative Rainbow Cookies?-

I've always shared the common belief that rainbow cookies are a spectacular gift from the gods. They add smiles to faces, work wonders when bribing people, dominate holiday cookie exchanges, and can even provoke sporadic song and dance. One day it dawned on me that some people can't take part in the amazingness of these morsels. It was time for somebody to do a good deed and create a rainbow cookie for the masses to enjoy. This is when I studied up on alternative baking and turned my home kitchen into a war zone. In time, a baking phenomenon was born. It had all of the beloved rainbow cookie qualities, only a different composition. People who have aversions to grains, wheat, gluten, soy, nuts, dairy, animal products, unnatural ingredients, refined sugar, GMOs, cholesterol and trans fats will soon be able to enjoy this wonder of a cookie harmoniously.  Now, Can I get a "Hell Yeah"?

Risks and challenges

Dealing with food allergens is risky since anything that can jeopardize a person's health is a serious matter. I plan on getting my product lab tested and have collected documentation on the matter from my different vendors. If I had to change an ingredient due to allergen concern, it's something I'm prepared to handle. Initially I had several coconut based ingredients in the recipe. Some doctors classify it as a fruit, but the FDA says it's a tree nut. I had to find substitutions for those 3 ingredients. I am very happy with the result and don't feel it had any negative effect on the product.
