“Hey, I’m Paige Shaw the owner and founder of Sugar Twinz Bakery. I am 12 years old, in grade 7 and I’m a competitive swimmer with a great passion for baking.
We worked hard to create a little business and never thought that it would become something big. We had our ups and downs with our bakery and finally figured out that it would be better off for me to run the business by myself.
When I took over the business it was a lot harder but it was better for the business.
I started to donate money to Sick Kids Hospital when the business grew a little bigger. I started by donating $100 and now to this day I have donated a total of $600.
I’ve been doing this for the past 3 Christmas’s and even though it gets busy and hard to manage the business it’s definitely worth it to see my customers enjoy my baking and to be able to donate money to a great cause.
My bakery is all based around my families’ shortbread recipe. I got the recipe from my amazing Scottish Gramma. When we stated the business I wanted to make something different and special to sell so I thought of some of my Gramma’s baking. I always loved baking with my Gramma so she was thrilled to teach me how to make her amazing shortbread. Now I make shortbread with some of my own twists to make it even better.
Thank you so much Gramma for all your love and support.
The reason why I really wanted to start the bakery was because I wanted to have fun and make a little extra money. With the money that I make I have been able to pay for a part of the cost for my summer camp. I go to camp Mi-a-kon-da. It’s an amazing camp and it’s like my second home.
I love being with all the other inspiring girls and I have made friendships that will last forever. Thanks to all my amazing customers I have been able to go back year after year knowing that I worked hard to get to camp.
Thank you so much to WEWednesdays! and all the great women that I have met from going to the meetings.
I am so happy to get the opportunity to share my story with all the wonderful women entrepreneur’s that I have met so far. PHOTO: Paige with MJ Rompre, Durham City Host
I have learned so much by listen to what they did with their business and how they were able to succeed.
I really do enjoy going to these events and learning about all the other struggles and successes that other women have gone through to improve their businesses. Thanks again.
