For Sammy Gollschewski, baking has been a passion since high school.
Sammy used to enter cakes into the Royal Brisbane Show and even placed a few times!
After graduating year 12, she became a personal trainer and later had kids, before deciding to return to the workforce with The Cup Cake Taste.
The store has now been up and running in Graceville for seven years!
Sammy says they started off doing markets, but explains you have to be very careful when transporting cupcakes.
She says it was nice to open their own store that they could sell cupcakes out of daily.
The team one of the things they love about the Graceville area is that they’ve watched the local kids go from tiny tots to much bigger kids and they still pop by after school to grab a cupcake.
New flavour ideas generally happen when Sammy’s on holidays because she has time to stop and think (while she’s meant to be relaxing!).
We speak to Sammy about why she loves baking.
