We had the good fortune of connecting with Monica Medrano and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Monica, what do you attribute your success to?
I believe you should never stop dreaming! When I started my business I never thought I would be making the type of cakes I make now.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
When I started my cake journey little I know that it will become by full time job. I have been decorating cakes for the past 9 years.

I have learned so much during this time. One of the most important things is to find your passion and do what you like. I love making celebrations and wedding cakes and see my customers reactions. That brings me so much joy!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I love Houston and their surroundings areas, I actually live in Sugarland, we have so many wonderful places here.

I will definitely take my best friend to any of our sports games. I love Mexican food, I will definitely take them to Hugo’s one of my favorite restaurants in the city.

I also love Herman Park, will definitely go for a walk there.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I definitely wouldn’t be here without the support of my family.
