Let Them Eat Cakes

Jordan Moran is an enterprising and talented young entrepreneur. Just a few months away from graduating from The Art Institute of Salt Lake City’s culinary school, he has already acquired a storefront for channeling his passion. The cakes Jordan creates at Bayshore Cakes are beautiful and original works of art that taste as amazing as they look. Being customer focused, his commitment to satisfying the visions of his clients accounts for the majority of his business coming from word-of-mouth referrals. And business is growing.

I had the pleasure of spending some time watching and photographing Jordan at work on Friday. Not only was it educational – I had no idea what went into creating an intricate 5-tiered wedding cake – it was inspiring to observe someone less than half my age working with such dedication to realize his dream one satisfied customer at a time.
