Meghan Rosko | Nutmeg & Honeybee

Hi there! My name is Meghan Rosko and I'm the owner and founder of Nutmeg & Honeybee, a sweet dessert boutique. I’m currently 21 and live outside of Philadelphia, where I go to school full-time. Managing my business and going to school full-time is not easy, but it's very rewarding. I started Nutmeg & Honeybee in 2014 before I knew exactly where it would take me. In August of 2014, my brother passed away right before I was supposed to go back to school. I had two options at this point - go back to school and attempt the grieving process, or take the semester off and clear my head. I decided on the latter and it ended up being the best decision. I started baking sugar cookies to clear my mind and it eventually turned into a passion. It's amazing how hardships can turn into something beautiful. Now it's not always delicious cookies and macarons. There are times where I just want to be a college kid and not run on six hours of sleep, but what makes it all worth it are the friends I've made in the industry. Social media has been a key marketing tool for most people (myself included), but I'm so thankful that it led me to the most amazing creative people that I can now call my friends.

"As women, I think it's our duty to support one another in a world full of competition. There is plenty of business out there for everyone, so there's no need to be jealous and bring down fellow creatives."

I recently travelled to NYC to meet with bakers I had connected with through Instagram. We chatted about the business, late night cookie-ing, but most importantly, we talked about ways we could all continue to stay in touch and work together. In that moment, I knew that what I was doing was right. It was connecting with people and supporting each other that gave me a sense of purpose. I love baking and creating, but sometimes building friendships is the most important.

Fun facts about me:

I've travelled to eight different countries around the world, but I think Barcelona was my favorite spot. I was so inspired by this city and all the colors it had to offer. A lot of my baked goods have mosaic work that was inspired by Park Geull in Barcelona.

I'm currently listening to Lake Street Dive. They are a modern jazz, alternative, rock, indie band (I think that's the best way to describe them, ha!) and I'm going to see them in concert next week.

I take inspiration from everyday life. Whether it's from the toys on the floor I have to clean up after babysitting, or the textures from succulents, I find new ways to be inspired all the time. The people that inspire me are Katherine Sabbath and Caroline Khoo. They are both exceptional bakers and artists.
