A down-on-her-luck young Exmouth woman has revealed how she has turned things around, following the launch of her new business.

Holly Hazell, 22, opened Holly’s Cakery Cupcake shop last month – and she has set her sights on some big orders.

Holly graduated with a 2.1 in geography and geology from Plymouth University last year, but she then struggled to get a job, leading her to open her own business in Exeter Road - right next door to her parents’ accountancy firm.

Holly said: “I did a cake course five or six years ago. Making cakes has always been a bit of a hobby for me - I really enjoy it.

“I now make cupcakes for weddings and birthdays. I spend my day making cakes and planning ideas on how to take the business forward.

“My parents both have their own business and they knew what I needed to do.

“Business has been quiet, but I have been prepared for that.”

Holly revealed she is already creating employment opportunities in the town.

The entrepreneur revealed she currently employs two part-time members of staff.

For more information about Holly’s Cakery, contact the business on 01395 266901.
