Spring Craig is the winner of the 2022 Annual CakeSafe Box Giveaway! Our co-owner Juli had the difficult job of selecting a winner. She read through many hundreds of contest entries and wished she could gift a CakeSafe to every person. Each year the process of choosing a winner becomes more and more difficult. Read Spring’s giveaway entry below to see why she was chosen as this year’s winner.
My name is Spring Craig. My business is Cakes by Spring. I know, so creative! I truly love what I do. I have been cake decorating since I was 13 years old. It's been a life long passion of mine. Last year I was able to quit my health care job to decorate cakes full time! My husband is so supportive. Last year I had my very first catastrophe, that was my fault anyway. Customers have done their own damage for sure! I received an order from a woman who wanted to surprise her mother-in-law for her anniversary with a full blown wedding cake that she never got. Well, needless to say that poor woman still has never had a wedding cake. Talk about the most crushing experience ever! I made the wrong decision to stop at a red light. Never in my life had I wanted to run a red light more than this moment. I felt it come crashing down with my soul! All the hours of work, the hundreds of dollars I had to return, and the precious memories that I ruined in one moment. I attached the before and after photos. It was supposed to be a homage to the era they got married with the baby blue suits and yellow flowers. Very 80's vibe. Anyway, she said not to be too hard on myself. But as any cake decorator could agree, we're going to take it so hard! I think I may be traumatized from this event. Anytime I transport a cake now, my hands are sweaty, my jaw is clenched, and I'm driving like a little old lady! I would love to be considered to be bestowed with such an amazing and stress relieving gift! I'm just a small town cake decorator, but I'm growing my business and my skill more and more every day!
When notifying Spring that she won the annual CakeSafe Box Giveaway we were excited to learn that she had welcomed a sweet baby boy named Baker into the world a few days earlier! And we were even more excited that she wanted to meet CakeSafe, LLC owners Juli and Scott in person to deliver her winnings. Cute photo alert!!
