About this project

$2,900

49

 is a melt in your mouth, socially conscious confectionery specializing in Cinnamon Toffee Popcorn, Gourmet Cookies, Whoopie Pies, Handcrafted Toffee, and all kinds of other wonderful sweets. I make every delicious batch fresh to order. You can learn more about Almond Blossom Bakeshop by visiting my company website: www.abbakeshop.com.

I bake and make candy every weekend - it's my form of meditation - sometimes for customers, other times just to try out new recipes or keep honing my craft, and always for a sweet escape.

Funding:

Your support will help me take this business to the next level. Funding would go towards start-up costs including licenses, permits, and insurance, supplies and equipment so I can ramp up production to start selling locally at Farmer's Markets and nationally by shipping orders.

Rewards:

Here's a picture of the gift boxes that I will be sending to every person who pledges at least $25!

Thanks for checking out my project - I would love your support to keep building Almond Blossom Bakeshop! 

Risks and challenges

My greatest challenge will be balancing this exciting endeavor with my daytime job. Luckily, I have very low fixed expenses for this business and I have the ability to scale up or down on a week to week basis as needed. I also plan to hire assistant confectioners and sales representatives as my business grows. Who knows, maybe I'll be able to make this my full time job one day!
