Most 8-year-old girls are satisfied with playing with Easy Bake Ovens — but not Taylor Moxey. This pint-seized pastry chef is turning heads as one of the youngest sweets entrepreneurs ever. She’s proven herself a whiz in the kitchen, from winning the KISS Miami Cornbread Competition, to making and selling her own gourmet cookies and cupcakes.
So far, Ms. Moxey, who bakes the sweet treats and hand-decorates the pastry boxes after school, has made thousands of dollars from her venture, and much of the money, she told Local 10 News, helps a dyslexia awareness charity organization. Some of her most illustrious clients include Citi Bank and HGTV’s Bobby Berk. And she isn't shy about her future aspirations either.
"The rest of my cooking career is to just fly free and have my own bakery," said Taylor.
