Old School

Thursday, August 26, 2010

This order was placed by a couple of the sweetest guys. They were throwing a surprise party for their parents 25th anniversary and wanted a replica of the original wedding cake. I usually try to steer customers towards a more modern design but it was such a thoughtful gesture that I couldn't resist making it. It was actually a fun cake to make, although I was a bit nervous about the height of those columns. How did bakers in the 80's survive setting that up without having a heart attack? But I'm told it held up for the party so I guess those flimsy columns are sturdier than they feel. The parents loved the party and the cake and I was glad to be a part of it. Oh, and the topper is from the original wedding cake 25 years ago. I had to clean it up a bit but I finally got to use my archeology degree.

Bakery space for rent

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Interested in starting your own confection business? My partner is moving away and we're looking for someone who'd like to take her place and rent space in our shop. It's $600 a month and includes utilities. You'd get to use it at your convenience and it's already equipped. So if you're in the Baton Rouge area let me know if you're interested and I'll show you around.

Washington D.C.

Saturday, May 22, 2010

I had a great time visiting D.C. and thought I would share a few pictures. I went to a lot of fun places like the White House and the the Bureau of engraving and Printing (where they make lots of money!) but some of my favorite places to visit were the cake shops. The first place we went to was Georgetown Cupcakes. It's such a cute shop and the chocolate peanut butter chip cupcakes are delicious! I'm going to try making those myself.

Check out that display of cupcakes!

They were also filming for a show on TLC when I went in that day. It's supposed to air in July so it will be cool to watch it and say I was right there!

The next place we tried was Hello Cupcake. They also had good cupcakes. I like my frosting better though. ;)

And finally, I got to see the Charm City Cakes building in person! Just the outside, I didn't want to bug them for a tour. I wonder how many people they get banging on the door? We only had a few minutes to spare since we had to catch our plane so we drove by so I could jump out and take a picture. It was so cool!

D.C was a fun place to visit and I hope we can go back sometime because there's so much to see and do there!

Sample Day!

Sunday, January 24, 2010

I've been meaning to start this up for a while but things have been crazy trying to get the shop ready. Once a month, I'll prepare a box of samples to give customers a chance to try my cakes. This will be in place of giving samples at consultations, which saves me from baking a whole cake for each consult. So if you haven't had a chance to taste my cake (or you have and just want free cake,- hey, I'd do it too) then here is the info:

Date: Tuesday Feb. 9, 2010
Place: 4608 Jones Creek rd. suite 250 (in the White Oak Village shopping center)
Time: open from 11 am to 7pm

I'll only prepare enough samples for those who sign up so please RSVP by email or phone.
Obviously, I can't have 100 people sign up so I'll have to set a limit of 18 but we're working on having a grand opening soon where lots of people will get free cake and cookies.
