I graduated from Georgian Technical University, Faculty of Informatics, but I soon realized that communication with people was more interesting for me than technology.

I have been working in completely different fields for years. At the same time I was always in quest of myself.

Three years ago, I made a very important decision in my life. I decided that I no longer wanted to have a routine work. I wanted to have my own business and income. During this period I attended a general management course at Georgian Institute of Public Affairs (GIPA), which gave me inspiration and motivated me. I did not have any investments to start a business in that period, so I recalled my forgotten hobby.

I loved baking since childhood, though I have never studied it professionally.

It found out that not so much inventory was needed to make beautiful cookies, and the basic ingredients (butter, sugar, flour) are available in almost every household. After several test versions of the cookies I opened my business page on social media and the first orders did not delay. This is how “Gaamo”, which I am raising and taking care of as a child, was born.

Currently, I am actively conducting master classes and teach how to cover cookies with drawings. I believe that ornamenting cookies is a kind of therapy and I want to share my knowledge and experience that I have accumulated over the last three years with as many people as possible. At the same time, I am mastering the confectionery art at the Vocational College “Ikaros”.

In the future I am going to open my own studio-workshop, where anyone will have the opportunity to come and learn how to cook cookies. Nino Shoshiashvili - Founder of online confectionery “Gaamo”.
