FOUNDER, RAKHSHAN IJAZ
After many years of experimenting with bakes and imagining the business I wanted to set up, I finally overcame my fear of failure in August 2020 (shortly after my 27th birthday!) and mustered up the confidence to follow my passion.
The pivotal point for me was the loss of my father and while working through the grief of which, I realised the old cliché that life is too short for what ifs. The best way to honour my Dad was to follow my dreams; as well as demonstrating to my 2 beautiful children to dream big and not allow people’s opinions to hold you back.
At the heart of my business is my passion for food and fusing my dual-culture (British & Pakistani) to create beautiful things which excite people. I absolutely adore creating (is there anything more satisfying?!) and knowing the joy my creations bring to people! Growing up, food was so integral in my family life and I have countless memories which can be triggered by particular flavours or tastes. That is why the passion I pour into my business reflects in the products being an experience, not just a quick sweet fix.
