Today's Sweet Tooth: Delicious Desserts by Michelle

by Danielle Wagner

NEW HARTFORD (KWWL) Baking is just another day at the office for Michelle Church.

She jumped into Delicious Desserts by Michelle a couple years ago.

"I was a stay at home mom for several years. About two and a half years ago I thought, well, I'll take a cake decorating class. So I did that at hobby lobby and something clicked and I took the second one and the third one they offered. So that January of 2007, I decided to start a business," said Church.

Right now she uses space at Country BBQ and Catering in New Hartford, but she's in the process of adding a kitchen onto her home.

She also hopes to bring on a couple employees. Church is still surprised at how fast she went from a stay-at-home mom to her own boss.

"It completely just happened. I never knew what I wanted to do when I grew up. Now maybe I've finally grown up because I know what I want to do," said Church.

After sending her children off to school, she meets with clients and bakes.

"When I first started it was the baking that was my favorite part, but now it's the decorating. So the baking, even though I still enjoy it, that's the work part," said Church.

Church specializes in cakes, but also bakes cheesecakes, cookies and creme puffs. Her baking is all about the customer.

"This is something somebody wants, not something they need. So let's make it enjoyable and worthwhile," she said.
