A Day in the Life
I thought I would devote this blog to a day in the life of Kerry’s Bouqcakes. Many of you know that along-side my business I am also a mum. I am juggling full-time work alongside busy mum life. I can feel all you busy working parents out there agreeing with this too whether you are self-employed or working for an employer.
Firstly, I offer a variety of services within my business from online class filming, private lessons, group workshops. Then there is content planning, collaborations, cake orders for clients and so much more, not to mention keeping up with the admin and social media management and here I am writing a blog. Therefore, my days are very varied but I love that no two days are the same.
This is what a typical private lesson day would look like for me….Read More
Business and my Family
What makes my business a success
I can tell you in one word, customers or students in my case.
I wanted to dedicate this blog to my amazing students, yes you and my followers of course. It’s astonishing to have followers from all over the world and I feel so privileged that people like my work enough to purchase my classes and learn from me.
Furthermore, it’s gratifying that students return and purchase more classes from me which makes me feel that I must have produced a worthwhile product. If ever I needed validation, (and we all need this to be the best we can be) this is it and give me that warm feeling inside.
It is often overlooked that when you support a small business you really are supporting someone’s dream (a real person and not a huge faceless company.) When you support a small business, it is much more personal as you are supporting a family directly.Read More
Let’s Talk Trolls
The internet has changed the world forever and has bought us so many positive and wonderful things. It has expanded our world bringing to us so much we would have missed before.
For me, it has given me an amazing audience from across the world who support and encourage me every single day. It has given me the global reach to share my passion for teaching my craft worldwide. It allows me to share images of my work with no limitations on who can see it. I love the feedback which is a two-way street on the feel-good factor. If it makes my followers smile, it in return makes me feel happy.
Unfortunately, the downside is that the internet has made it possible for negativity to also reach your inbox and that’s what I want to talk about in this blog as it affects so many people in different ways.

The Proof Is In The Pudding
I don’t know about you, but when I’m looking to make a purchase whether it is online, or from a store, I always spend some time browsing through reviews to help me make a decision on whether to complete my purchase or not. I like to know that the item or service I am purchasing is from a reputable business and that I won’t be disappointed with my order or experience.
I take great pride when a student leaves me a positive review either on social media or via Google Reviews after they have purchased an online tutorial, or have been to have a lesson with me in person.
If you’ve been thinking for a while now about booking a class with me, from my location in Norfolk, UK; or possibly choosing a tutorial to learn via my website then I wanted to make it super easy for you to read some recent genuine reviews from people just like you!
As always, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me, whether that’s via this website, or a DM via social media.Read More
