Where did you find the inspiration for the pattern?

Both my best friends like pineapples; one of them got me a pineapple journal once.

It’s just something for fun.

Now, what about that baking business?

Lexi, I heard that you were into baking, How’d that start?

It was a couple years ago when my mom got me piping tips for frosting, I found out I like baking and that I enjoy it. I thought that I was pretty decent at it. My dad saw there were extra of cupcakes and took them to work where ladies started liking [the cupcakes] and ended up even buying some.

What are your future plans? Do they include baking and quilting?

No, Just baking and growing an official business when I grow up.
