Today we’d like to introduce you to Juliet Mendez.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My love for baking began when me and my boyfriend started making desserts after dinner for ourselves and our families. We started with mini tarts, crepes, and cookies, I loved seeing how happy and satisfied everyone was after eating something we made from scratch! Around 2014 is when I began making and decorating cakes to sell, it started with family members and then friends, then to customers who found me through my Instagram page, Facebook, and word of mouth! Recently I was on FOX 26 NEWS showing some ASTROS cake I made! That was an amazing experience and I can’t thank my customers and family enough for all the support.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Making a mistake can be rewarding in the end when decorating a cake or even a cupcake, without messing up, I wouldn’t be where I am today! If it’s staying up until 4 am in the kitchen to make sure the order is done or make sure it’s perfect, it’s all worth it. I love it when the customer picks up their order and they are smiling from ear to ear and so excited to see what you created for them! My advice for others would believe in what you create, work hard and be yourself no matter what!
Please tell us about Lime St Bakery.
I love creating Birthday, wedding, and baby shower cakes! Not only do I love and specialize in cakes, I love making cupcakes, cake-pops, decorated cookies, and macaroons! My cakes are decorated in gold or chocolate colored drip, edible gold flakes, handmade meringues and macaroons! I love to create free handed artwork with my cakes working from scratch with how and where I place each item. Every detail is important to me, I want my customers to see how much I care about the cake looking amazing for their special event or occasions! I am very proud as a baker to say that my customers really helped me to get where I am today! I was so proud to be on FOX 26 news showing my desserts to all of the viewers, without them that would not have been possible. I am happy to offer, VEGAN, GF, SUGAR-FREE and KETO desserts, not many bakeries offer those options and I am happy to offer desserts no matter the diet a customer is on.
Do you think there are structural or other barriers impeding the emergence of more female leaders?
There are many bakers in the Houston area, and I feel like we all have our own style and designs that fit whatever the occasion a customer is looking for, we support one another and praise each other’s artwork and creations! Us women are strong business owners and we know all the hard work and countless hours that go into our artwork, having a family might be a barrier, but we are incredible and can do everything and anything we set our goals minds too.
