Hi, I’m Sharon, owner of Scrum Lily Umptious. Looking back to when I was younger I never thought I would one day be owning a business.
Scrum lily Umptious is now 6 years old! Sat thinking about it I’m doing a job that I absolutely love doing – that makes me very lucky.
I get to see my customers faces when they see their cakes, most importantly I get to see the little ones faces – that seals it for me. The absolute delight on a child’s face when they see their favourite cartoon character or their favourite program or toy recreated into a birthday cake just for them – priceless!
Anyway a little about me so you know who’s blog your reading. I am mum of 2, Lily who is 7 and Theo who is 16 months.
So Scrum Lily Umptious first came about just after Lily was born. I was blessed, she was a good baby, I was on maternity leave and dare I say it ‘bored’. I’ve always baked cupcakes so just started playing around a bit. I remember someone asking for a Christmas cake – wow out of my comfort zone here but hey let’s give it a go.
Magic! Mission accomplished.
So then came about, well if you can do Christmas cakes surely you can do a birthday cake. Sorry what?
And that’s where it started. July 2013 Scrum Lily Umptious was born from my dining room.
It’s been tough I won’t lie but 6 years later I’m still here – now that’s an achievement!!
January 2015 I left my part time employment, I was officially going it alone. June 2015 I opened my shop. A dream had come true, it wasn’t without blood, sweat and tears but wow!
March 2018 saw me close my shop as Theo was arriving, I’d missed so much of Lily growing up with being employed I was determined I wasn’t going to miss out again.
So we took Scrum Lily Umptious back home. We are now busier than ever!
I have clients who have been with me since the very beginning, seeing their children grow to through their cakes is certainly a journey, one I love.
If you have a dream, follow it, only you create your boundaries, set your limitations and create the ‘buts’.
If you don’t try how will you know??
