Conversations with Gwen Richardson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gwen Richardson. Them and their team share their story with us below:

All Exquisite Events, LLC is a home-based baking business in the Northeast and Blythewood area of Columbia, South Carolina. It is owned and operated by Gwen Richardson. ​ ​

Gwen’s love of cooking began as a little girl helping her mother. Her love of creating tasty treats is grounded in the joy she received as a young girl licking the bowl of her mother’s delicious desserts.

In 2004, Gwen walked into Michaels and started a cake decorating class. From there Gwen started baking and decorating for family and friends, and it flourished into a business. All Exquisite Events, LLC was established in April 2016.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Some of my struggles were believing in myself. There are so many talented bakers and treat makers in the Columbia area and I would always second guess my work.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’ve been employed by the state of South Carolina for 24 years. I have held many positions during these years. I am currently an Administrative Coordinator II.

I work as a live stream producer. What I am most proud of while working for the state of SC is I can do whatever is thrown at me.

What does success mean to you?
To me, success is feeling complete at what you do and how you feel about it.
