I’m Tashana, owner of Sweets by Tash Mo based on Long Island, NY. I currently hold a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management from Farmingdale State College and a Certificate in Culinary Arts from Barry Tech.
Baking has always been an important part of my life. Growing up I had 2 Easy Bake Ovens. I would bake with my father and he always told me I could make a living doing what I love to do.
As I got older, I watched the food network every night and loved Emeril Legasse. I call him my inspiration because he always had a fun personality, he cooked with enthusiasm, and you could feel his passion through the tv screen. He showed that this could be a fun career.
I founded Sweets by Tash Mo accidentally on purpose. In 2015, a friend of mine asked for a themed cupcake design but the order didn’t work out. I thought of it as perfect timing because this was something that I’ve always wanted to do and it started the opportunity to share and monetize my talent. Weeks later, I made and gave out samples of Cookies & Cream cupcakes. I posted a picture to my social media and everything changed from there.
I am so happy that my customers, old and new, continue to choose me and I am excited to share my passion and journey with you.
