Cakes ~

We’ve been amazed at how busy we’ve been lately! It’s been good to bake pretty much non-stop – a labor of love. We’ve been busily baking cakes for weddings & birthdays – yesterday was the birthday of a young soccer fan who wanted a soccer cake for his 7th birthday. Soccer he wants and soccer he gets!

and just before that, a boxer cake for a young one’s 4th birthday who wanted the family’s boxer on top of the cake…we added the other “boxes” and bright colors for the festive vibe.

We’re doing more special orders lately as well! This is something I’m enjoying quite a lot. If people need treats for their office and they want to ensure that what they want will be there, they’ve been calling in even for orders as small as a dozen of this or that. It helps us as everything we do is baked in small batches to ensure quality. We’re able to make sure our customers get what they want in the numbers they want and they get the joy of walking in to the bakery and having their treats waiting for them – which means no standing around waiting for us to get things boxed.
It’s been wonderful getting into the groove of being open at long last and getting to know our customers. Now that we’re getting more of a routine, I should have more time (and energy!) to update this blog!
Come on in and see all of the new items we’ve been adding to our selection of treats…this week we added chocolate chipotle cupcakes with chocolate ganache frosting and a dusting of edible gold dust! I was going through our shelves to see what there was and found two lonely chipotle peppers…I did a rough chop of these and added them into our deep, dark, decadent chocolate cupcakes…smoky pepper heat leaving a gentle back-burn with the silky smooth of the chocolate…oh the wonder!
