Interview with Kim from The Ungourmet

IMG_1187

Continuing my series of  interviewing awesome bloggers with Entrepreneurial ventures, I would love to introduce you to Kim, although I know many of you know her as The Ungourmet . Her blog is one of my favorites and one of the first I started reading after I started Chow and Chatter three years ago. She is humble, a great cook and a wonderful Mum. She always makes the best cupcakes so the idea of The Cupcake Academy was a perfect fit for her, love it.





1. How long have you been blogging and what prompted you to start?

I have been blogging for since February 2009. I was inspired to begin my adventures in blogging after stumbling onto Ree’s blog, The Pioneer Woman. I was immediately intrigued and couldn’t wait to give it a try. I did a bit of research and fumbled my way through it. I’ve learned so much and made so many terrific blogging friends along the way.

2. Tell us a little about yourself....

I am a wife and a mother to two amazing kids. I recently accepted a position as a baker with a local camp/conference center. It’s wonderful to have the opportunity to use recipes from the Ungourmet on the job.

3. Tell us about your love of cupcakes and how you got the idea to start the academy.

I can't think of very many things in this life as cute as a cupcake! They are full and whimsy and fun and they are just the perfect portion. I really can’t remember just how I came up with the idea for Cupcake Academy but I can tell you I came up with it in the wee hours of the morning. I don't know about you but I do some of my best thinking during the times I really should be sleeping!

4. Give us a run down of what a person booking you for a party, learning experience could expect...

Cupcake Academy offers cupcake baking parties for up to ten children. The parties are held in the client’s home and the kids have a chance to become pint sized chefs for a few hours. They decorate their very own chef’s hat, don a darling apron and get busy. They mix, bake, decorate and finally, consume their cupcake masterpiece. The kids have a blast... and I have a blast watching them creating, learning, exploring, laughing and have fun.

  1. Love this idea (and love your interviews). I did a couple cooking parties for my kids when they were younger. It definitely depends on the ages of the kids. I will definitely check out Kim's blog. It sounds as though she is channeling a hobby/passion into a career. And I don't even like cupcakes and she has be wanting one, what is that?

  16. I think the Ungourmet (Kim) is quite amazing! Of course, it couldn't have anything to do with her being my Daughter! Seriously, I love her Blog and am so blessed by her creativity. The Cupcake Academy is a wonderful way for kids to express their creativity as well.
