It sounds like she admires you and your business. She asks for your help probably because she sees how successful and talented your are. Maybe she feels a little envious. Kind of the way a little sister looks up to a big sister. Just throwing ideas out there.If my friend was doing that I would make it very clear that baking is my career and I do not share my SECRET recipes with anyone. Tell her politely that you currently aren't looking to go into business with anyone...
Taking a vote!I am trying to decide which logo to use for my upcoming bakery. Piece of Cake Bakery will offer customizable cakes, cupcakes and cookies.
