Cupcakes Created by Idle Hands Baking Co.
By Zola Boyd, Courier Staff Writer
For my birthday, I was treated to a vegan cake and cupcakes, all of which were delightfully decadent and rich. The company supplying my tasty treats was Idle Hands Baking Company, based in Oakland. The company features an extensive, completely vegan-friendly selection of everything from peanut butter cupcakes to strawberry shortcake. The company was started and is currently run by Rachael Devlin, it's self-taught sole proprietor, whose environmentally conscious outlook and love of baking have created a sustainable and delicious small business. I had the chance to interview her, and her well-formed opinions and personal experience have showed me that you can get a job or start a business where you can get paid the big bucks and still love what you do, all while lightening your carbon footprint, so right on!
What made you decide to start your own baking company?
When I was 23 I started a vegan donut business with a friend. After moving on from that, it was only natural that I would do my own thing.

Mississippi John Hurt
(July 3, 1893 or March 8, 1892 — November 2, 1966) was an influential country blues singer and guitarist. He sang in a loud whisper, to a melodious finger-picked guitar accompaniment.
Born John Smith Hurt in Teoc, Carroll County, Mississippi and raised in Avalon, Mississippi, Hurt learned to play guitar at age 9. He spent much of his youth playing old time music for friends and dances, earning a living as a farm hand into the 1920s. In 1923 he partnered with the fiddle player Willie Narmour as a substitute for his regular partner Shell Smith. When Narmour got a chance to record for Okeh Records as a prize for winning first place in a 1928 fiddle contest, Narmour recommended John Hurt to Okeh Records producer Tommy Rockwell.
