Have a small business idea and need some inspiration?

Join Erin Nobles, owner of Silver Spoon Bake Shop, on Tuesday, January 17, 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m., in the Business, Careers and Research Center, as she shares her career story about taking her dream to become a pastry baker, creating her own path, and becoming a small business owner!

Erin graduated from USC, earning a degree from the College of Hospitality, Retail and Sports Management and then headed to New York City to attend the International Culinary Center where she completed a six-month course in classic pastry arts, followed by a three-month course in international bread making.

An internship at Ron Ben-Israel Cakes, an internationally acclaimed wedding cake maker in New York, provided yet another unique learning opportunity for Erin. She then worked for several years for bakeries in Charleston, SC and a catering firm in Charlotte, NC. In December 2013, Erin opened the Silver Spoon Bake Shop in Columbia. Most recently, Erin was selected as the Top Chef at the S.C. Farm Bureau Federation’s 2016 Palmetto Palate. Chef Erin led her team to the top honor with a macaron bar featuring six different macaron flavors, including pecan pie, peaches and cream chocolate covered peanut, blue and blackberry, sweet corn, & fig, goat cheese and honey.

Daily, Erin and her staff at the Silver Spoon Bake Shop love to see customers enjoy their creations - a variety of cakes, pies, pastries and other delectable desserts, made for a steady stream of happy customers!
