(Video) Chez Moi Bakery


Rhonda Jones has been in the business of making delicious spirit cakes out of her Durham home for over five years. I had a chance to spend some time with Rhonda while she made a cake utilizing Fullsteam Brewery’s chocolate inspired “Working Man’s Lunch” Beer. It was nice way for me to accomplish a few things 1) look inside the mind of a local entrepreneur 2) see how a cake is made using beer 2) confirm that I can be in a room with a couple dozen bottles of Cruzan room and not feel the need to get drunk like spring break 1999.

When we sat down, Rhonda was a couple of weeks from transitioning her home based business to a mobile unit after funding a successful Kickstarter Campaign and purchasing a truck to bring Chez Moi to the streets. Rhonda spoke about what motivates her, the ups and downs of being a small business owner and how she rebounded from an ankle injury that left her unable to properly carry out her first Kickstarter attempt that did not raise the minimum funds.

Chez Moi’s truck sent its first cakes and ice cream sandwiches through the window of the truck out side Fullsteam Brewery last month and Rhonda has big plans to continue to bring her cakes to the masses. So if you want to find out where the truck will be, head to http://www.iloverumcake.com or download the truxie app.
