New Venture part I

I’m looking into the possibility of opening a new Sin! We’ll still be doing custom cakes, but will be adding some new components. Come along and join me on the wonderful, scary, exciting, frustrating journey of opening a business in RI. 

I’m hoping that opening this new version of Sin will be a bit easier, because I’ve already done this once.  I’m an existing business, so I won’t have to file for a federal id number, I won’t have to register with the city and the state and quite a few other small filings. But I’ve never done something of this scale and there’s a whole new area added, so it should be interesting! 

I’ve already submitted a proposal, written a rough business plan, met with some friends for advice and met with a financial guy.  

Now we’re just waiting for our proposal to be accepted. Once accepted we need to work out final details and adjust our budgets to make sure we can still do the project. Then... well, it all starts! 

Stay tuned!

Vacation and stuff.

I've been here by myself for the past couple of days. Just like it was when I first started! Every once in a while it's nice to be here by myself. I haven't frosted this much is months! It's good to get my hands "frosty", makes me remember why I love this so much.
We're taking a much needed vacation now thru January 11th. Manuela is going to Colorado for skiing, Keri to Columbia to visit family and I'm going on a short cruise to Nassau.
Boy do we need it, we did approximately 130 wedding cakes and over 250 other cakes, all unique and individually designed and decorated. Plus we did thousands of cupcakes, anniversary cakes, desserts, dummy cakes, events... so much cake!
But, here's looking to next year! Let's double it!!! Yeah!!!
