New Duluth Bakery Invites Governor to Duluth and St. Louis County at the Capitol
Yesterday Senator Roger Reinert, along with Amber Griffith of Cake Occasions, personally invited Governor Mark Dayton to Duluth and St. Louis County at the Capitol’s 15th annual grand reception on February 29. Cake Occasions, a new start-up bakery business in Duluth, made a Lake Superior-inspired cupcake as a unique invitation to next week’s event.
“Today’s meeting with the Governor not only highlighted Duluth and St. Louis County days but also showcased an entrepreneur starting a small business in Duluth,” said Senator Reinert. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and it’s people like Amber – willing to take the risk – that will continue to move us out of a recession.”
Amber, a full-time business student, started Cake Occasions as a way to combine her business knowledge and her creative side. After taking several cake decorating classes, Amber began posting photos of her creations online. The response was overwhelming; and in July 2011 the business born.
The Lake Superior cupcakes were made of lemon cake with a blueberry center, which represents the heart of the lake. The frosting was “freshwater” blue with chocolate rocks on top to complete the effect. “This was by-far one of the tastiest invitations I’ve received this session,” said Governor Dayton.
