From Hobby to “Part-Time Job”

So this baking thing has kind of turned itself from a hobby to a “part-time job.” It all started with posting a few pictures here and there on my Instagram or Facebook, accounts…and then I started to get messages from friends and family asking if I could make a cake or cater for their next event…and now my calendar is packed with at least 3 orders every week! I started a new calendar just for my baking because it was getting a bit hectic, haha.

I apologize for not having posted for a while, but I’ve been working on perfecting a couple recipes so that I can have a few signature treats that make RhyhmNoms stand out from the crowd. Specifically, I’ve decided to explore the art of MACARON MAKING. However, that’s a topic for another post. Let’s keep the suspense for the upcoming week shall we? 😉

So my first ever order to be invoiced is from AIESEC SFU. AIESEC is student organization recognized worldwide for its well-established exchange program for university students. Not only do students receive the opportunity to volunteer or work abroad, but they are also invited to many international leadership conferences as well.


On Wednesday June 18th, AIESEC SFU will be hosting a drop-in event called the “Global Impact Fair” in the Academic Quadrangle. You’ll be able to learn how to secure an international exchange in the future, listen to other students’ testimonials about their exchange experiences, and most importantly, grab a RhythmNoms cupcake while you’re at it!


For more info, visit their Facebook event. If you can’t attend that day, that’s okay because you can sign up for more info on their website as well!

I’ve been on several international exchanges myself, and I must admit, you learn SO MUCH MORE just by being in a foreign environment than by sitting in a lecture hall. My cupcakes and I are ready to see you on Wednesday! 😀
