High school student raking in $1k a month from cake business
A 15-year-old Gold Coast girl is making more than $1000 a month, after starting her own cake business.
Launching her business A Piece of Cake online nine months ago, Kea Walsh makes around four cakes a week.
"When I was younger I just liked eating the foods and now I like decorating them," the Silkwood High School student said.
"Sometimes I’m up really late at night doing the cakes but they get done."
Kea has been refining her skills with a traineeship at Little Miss Muffin in Southport.
Next year she'll travel to France to learn under some of the best pastry chefs in the world.
One day she hopes to learn under celebrity chef Adriano Zumbo.
"Her grandparents were big cake makers," her mother Anahera Walsh said.
"I am so proud. As a parent you just couldn't be any happier."
