About this project
My appreciation for sweets is one of my most passionate traits. As a fitness professional and a working mom of a 3 1/2 year old princess, I truly value the quality of a hand crafted, high quality treat that can only be described as a Little Drop of Heaven.
A few years back I became frustrated with the size and price of desserts. If I wanted a cupcake I had to buy a huge cupcake for $3 or more. I didn't want a treat that big therefore I wouldn't spend the money. I've baked from scratch my entire life and decided to start working on some smaller versions of my favorite treats. The more I tested and the more 'market research' I did at other bakeries, the more I believed in myself and my creations. I wanted to design a product that was easy on the waistline and easy on the wallet!!
All of my treats are baked from scratch, in small delicious batches using the very finest of real, top quality, fresh ingredients. I am always searching Kansas City for my inspiration and will constantly discover new and amazing flavors that truly are....well.....heavenly!
All of my treats are two bite desserts. I specialize in 4 items with endless flavor combinations. Cupcake truffles, cupcakes, whoopie pies and mini cookies. I also do custom crafted mini cakes to order.
For two years I have developed a large following of repeat customers and it's time to take things to the next level. I have been approved to have a booth in the Olathe Farmers Market this year and I could not be more excited.
With your support I will be able to buy such things as a large canopy, tables, large coolers, table clothes and packaging supplies. With such large quantities I will also be in need of a stand mixer that most bakers are shocked I don't already own.
I have also created a marketing budget that will include flyers, shirts, a new logo and signage.
Most importantly, I will be able to rent a large commercial kitchen every week in order to bake more efficiently and in such large quantities. This will be taking up the largest part of my budget.
HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1. Pledge the dollar amount you are comfortable with. Anything and everything will put me one step closer to the goal.
2. Share this Kickstarter site with your friends, family, co-workers, strangers in the elevator and everyone else you know.
3. Follow me on Twitter @dropofheaven and Facebook to track my progress.
4. Most importantly, this is an ALL OR NOTHING DEAL. If I don't make my goal in 30 days I don't get funding, you don't get your Little Drops of Heaven truffles in the mail, your credit card doesn't get charged and Kansas is without Little Drops of Heaven Bakery.
A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO MY GOOD FRIEND YUMI TAYLOR FOR PUTTING TOGETHER MY VIDEO AND LES BLANKENSHIP FOR INTRODUCING ME TO KICKSTARTER.COM!!!
