Bake my day was started in 2015 by Agata Kozlowska. When Ynja moved to Denmark in January 2017, she started looking for jobs as a cake decorator because of her former position at Sætar Syndir, Iceland. She was a full time artist, but wanted a part time job so that she would not have to stress about paying her rent in Copenhagen. So google led her way to Bake my Day. She applied, went for a test, and got the job. But it did not end up actually happening, because Agata wanted a full time employee, and Ynja did not want to take a job over her artist career.
A few months later ...
Ynja received a message from Agata asking if she could help her with a few baking classes. Ynja said yes, and in continuation of that, Ynja got the news that Agata had decided to move to Ireland with her boyfriend, saying goodbye to her little cake shop. Ynja got obsessed with the idea of taking over Bake my Day, and having only just turned 21 years old, she convinced her mother, Ester, to jump straight in with her and buy the brand Bake my Day. A few weeks later she got a positive answer for renting a corner shop at Amager Boulevard 126 - started taking orders in February, and opened a dessert shop front the first of March. With enormous amount of hard work, Bake my Day has gone from two employees to six in less than a year.
