11-Year-Old Girl Started a Successful Baking Business During the Pandemic
The pandemic has taken so many opportunities to workers and laborers but not to an 11-year-old baker from Pennsylvania.
COVID-19 has taken a lot of toll on people especially workers who were forced to resign because of the current situation. But when a door closes, another pathway opens just like what happened to London Warrick.
Being interested in watching several baking shows, Warrick shares with Newsweek the business starts when she baked a bundt cake for mother's day this year and gave away slices to different moms, asking her straight away to bake them cakes.
Warrick also mentions with Press Form that when she hears the news of people wanting her to bake more cakes, she realized that hitting the metal while it's hot may be a good idea, making her start her own cake business which she called Lovely London Delights.
11-year old baker
In an interview with ABC, London's mom Tramaine Warrick shares that people do not care even if London is 11 years old they even emphasized that they just want a cake. She adds in the interview that from there, London's cake business spread from people to people through word of mouth, and from there people started asking and ordering cakes.
London shares with Newsbreak that the cakes were not perfect at all times especially during her first tries. She also notes in her interview that there were times that the cakes would fall apart, but from there she learns that it's alright to make mistakes.
Studying in Upper Moreland School situated in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, ABC notes that the 11-year-old was able to sell nearly 300 cakes.
London is not the only one in America who was able to make the pandemic an opportunity to open businesses. Capital Currents notes that with people who have goals of giving back, cure boredom, and cultivate creativity, new business owners discover novel ways of coping up with the pandemic.
This pandemic has led London's business to enter the limelight. She shares with Press Form that all types of people from her city orders her cakes including her relatives.
Ordering process and future endeavors
In London's Instagram account, Press Form notes that people message her their orders which usually requests her cream cheese drizzle which is the best seller. She adds that she is also starting her website where people can order from.
She mentions in Newsweek that the cakes she sells are sold at 30 dollars without the drizzle and 35 dollars for the variants which have drizzle on them.
The 11-year old baker also has a dream to have a bakery in a mall in Willow Grove and she wants all her family members to work and help her, also merchandise on sale in her bakery shop so that can buy shirts and aprons as she told Newsweek.
The pandemic has caused and wreaked havoc among humanity upon their entrance, but opportunities like this 11-year old baker had is considered a blessing in disguise.
