We had the good fortune of connecting with Chelsea P. and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Chelsea, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
What led me to pursue a creative path was my creativity, and wanting to have creative freedom. I see myself as a very creative person. I’m constantly having new ideas, thinking about creating something new, or thinking of ways to put together things that I enjoy doing. Besides baking, I enjoy cooking and drawing. For that reason, the path that I choose gives me freedom to make my cakes a creative process. On the other hand, I used to work at this place, that I enjoyed working at. However, I was almost never allowed to give them my ideas or to use my creativity. As a consequence, I decided to make something my own, and use my creative strength, and freedom to make it grow.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
What sets us apart, as a business is that we’re trying not follow patterns. We’re creating our own patterns, quality and image. I’m proud for being the only person working behind the scenes, but I can’t wait to extend our family. One thing that I still doing to be where I’m today, is not comparing my progress or looking too much at what others are doing, because we tend to think that people are doing better than us. When in reality they might be struggling with something that we’re not aware of. We want to be known for having or own unique essence.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend was visiting, we would order some sweets at Le Blanche Bakery first. Then we would go to different places such as, the Museum of Fine Arts to see the tunnels, Water wall by the Galleria, Herman park to ride the boats, we would go the Butterfly Center and to Aquarium. We would go eat at Miyako, Sleek Chocolatier, or Chinese town. For night out we would just do a mine tour at the night clubs.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My family members, I’m very thankful for the amount of support that they put at everything that I do. It was just the other day that my father asked why I haven’t baked, it meant something for me. My shootout goes to my family, friends, clients and customers. Especially for everyone that truly believe and support us.
