I would like to introduce you to two amazing women.
Maria Jose Cardenas Novelo & Alicia Janet Cárdenas Novelo
Ed and I met these wonderful women soon after moving here. They are warm, loving and beautiful.
They are also two of the hardest working and most intelligent ladies I have ever met.
When we first met they told us of a dream they had to start a cake business.
Being that this was once a hobby of mine, I had several books and a bit of decorating supplies.
I didn't need them anymore, so I gave it all to them to use.
AND did they ever! They made my hobby work look like child's-play! Their business has grown a
great deal, and now they have a facility they own away from their home.
I love them for their hearts but am so proud to know them for their spirit and determination!
If you have been one of my students (especially one of my female students)
You have probably heard me lecture about women in Mexico striving to be strong and
Maria Jose and Alicia are role models for all, but most importantly, for women!
Not only do they demonstrate courage and determination, today I asked
for assistance with a few things for a cheesecake business I am starting. Some may be threatened and
worry that in someway I may undermine their business, but in contrast, Maria Jose and Alicia
opened their home and business to me to get whatever help I needed. I left with twice the supplies
I originally asked for help with.
This is also something I preach to my female students. Not only must they strive to be educated, strong
and independent, they must also support other women in their endeavors.
Please enjoy the pictures of just a handful of their many wonderful creations.
If you are in need of cakes, cupcakes, or goodies of all kind, please call them.
I know you will be over-joyed with the product you receive!
