Treats that appear as superior as they taste

As numerous terrific corporations are, Georgia’s Sweet Shoppe was born out of a wish to make a living from a beloved hobby. For Georgia Madison Smartt, that like was baking and decorating. 

Madison, as she’s additional typically recognized locally, stated, “I’ve constantly baked with my mom. I grew up in the kitchen with her and in higher college I began playing about additional with decorating. I continued on via college and my mom and my boyfriend genuinely pushed me to attempt to sell Mother’s Day cakes 3 years ago. From there, it just went crazy. For pretty much two years it is been my complete-time enterprise.”

When asked what sort of response her enterprise has garnered, Madison stated, “I can not quit. It genuinely is just non-quit.  Holidays are massive. Most of the time about the holidays, I am up all evening functioning on orders. But birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and other points keeps me going year-round,” Madison stated. 

That sounds like sufficient to hold any individual busy and, for the most component, Madison is handling the workload on her personal. “It really is fairly a great deal just me. I have assistance from my household and my boyfriend but I am the major baker, decorator, social media, advertising, all of that,” she stated.

Whilst Georgia’s Sweet Shoppe delivers all types of baked goods, a handful of things are most often requested. “On a weekly basis, I push out a lot of decorated sugar cookies and cakes. Other than that, I do cupcakes, drop cookies, brownies, blondies and I am beginning to do chocolate covered pretzels and Oreos,” Madison stated.

In addition to baking scrumptious goodies, Madison requires particular pride in her knowledge at decorating her treats. I was in particular delighted that she brought a specially customized St. Patrick’s Day cookie to our interview. I can attest it was as tasty as it was fairly. “I attempt to do something any individual throws at me when it comes to decorating and I figure it out as I go,” Madison stated.
