Yesterday afternoon, ArtsRising, the Frankford CDC, and the Frankford Neighborhood Advisory Committee teamed up to bring the Frankford Junior Garden Club to A Cupcake Wonderland‘s production space in Globe Dye Works. Learning, fun & deliciousness ensued!
Lily Fischer and Nima Etemadi showed the Junior Garden Club members their kitchen, and spoke about their career choices, passions, and hard work, as well as their experiences appearing on the Food Network’s Cupcake Wars not once, but three times.
Lily & Nima emphasized the hard work that goes in to running your own business, and that not every day or task is glamorous – but that it is important to follow your passions in life. Lily knew she wanted to bake; and not only did she take the leap of faith to start her own business, but she and Nima have put in the hard work and long days it took to make it a success.
We hope the Junior Garden Club members who participated yesterday were as inspired as we were by Lily & Nima!
