Help me grow Pe'Lumi Bakes

£3,759 of £7,000 goal

Raised by 31 people in 7 months
I've always baked as a way of passing time, spending time with my mum and making people happy. I took the plunge to turn it into a business, Pe'Lumi Bakes ( https://www.pelumibakes.com/ ), in May 2017, and haven't looked back since.

Since then,  I've managed to grow the business (IG: @pelumibakes)   but I'm still far from my goal of one day owning a cake showroom, to showcase my work and the work of fellow bakers and patisserie chefs.

One step towards that goal has been developing my skills in the traditional Korean Buttercream Flower technique.  I hope to develop a range of cakes which use this technique. This is where I need your help! In order to advance and improve on my ability, I need to be taught. Almost all classes in this technique are available in South Korea, Singapore or Australia/New Zealand.  I'm raising funds to be able to attend an overseas course in February 2019 and get the certifications I need.  This will cost around £3000-4000 for a week's worth of classes, accommodation and travel.

The specific course I'm looking to attend is offered by Yuna Flower Cake, from 11th to 18th Feb, in South Korea. More info available here. I was previously planning on attending a course in Australia, but this course was unfortunately cancelled. With this new course, I will become certified and gain level 1 and 2 Korea Design Cake Art Association (KDCAA) certifications, allowing me to teach the technique and be a recognised Korean buttercream flower artist.

The remaining funds will then be used to develop a marketing campaign for the cakes. This would include the making of a short film of the cakes being made, shoot venue hire, a photographer, a cinematographer/videographer,  and prop stylist. 

Donating to this cause would mean the world to me. I've invested so much into my business, and really believe it has the potential to flourish. I just need your help in getting there :) Even if you can only spare your last pound, I'd be touched that you chose to spend it on me and helping me realise my dream. If you've ordered from me before, tasted my work or simply an admirer, please comment below and share :)

Many thanks in advance. 

Kindest of regards, 

Francesca, Owner of Pe'Lumi Bakes.

Flights RE-booked!

Last week was a very stressful one in the life of the campaign. I woke up on Tuesday morning to see a refund of my class deposit and an email explaining that the class had been cancelled due to “unforeseen circumstances”..whatever that means! The snag is I already booked my flights to Sydney, Australia (original class destination).. so now in the process of trying to claim that back through my travel insurance.

I’ve rescheduled a class with Yuna Flower Cake, for an even better class than before and certifications to be a recognised member of the Korean Cake Decorating Art Association member and reach!

Because of the change in class and destination, I’ve had to move the trip forward for affordability sake. So less than two weeks to go until departure...eek!
