I'm basically in need of some advice. I'm currently 19, have completed my alevels and am on a gap year. I currently hold a place to go university this October, although I feel that it is a subject I will do well in but will not be beneficial to me in the long run (schools more or less force you int applying for any degree and so I out down Media and Communications as I have no idea what I want to do in life).
I've been interested in baking and cake decoration all my life, and was wondering in how to take it further. I have recently visited two local cake decoration shops to ask if I could do a few hours a week or even for free just to see if I like it enough to pursue it further as a career, though unfortunately both shops turned me down.
Sorry this post is very whaffley, I'm just at a loss on what to do! Since I'm quite young, I don't have friends as such that will ask me to make a cake for them, and I don't feel I have enough experience to start offering cakes to my parents friends ect.
All I can think of is either taking me place at university, and come out with debt and a degree that is more or less useless in today's world, or forget about uni and find another route down cake decorating while taking the risks that I may be crap at it or not like it! (I doubt the latter somehow )
Sorry for going on and on again! Many thanks to any replies
