Off The Wall

A Michael Jackson Cake for Kristen....

This was done last month. We're all fans of MJ here, his music gets us working. I had hoped that he'd return to his music glory days, unfortunately that isn't to be.... 

A Wall... (ok a house, but a wall goes better with the title) for Jason's wedding. 

And in case the roof is on fire.... a fire truck! 

I thought I was busy, take 2...

Last week was crazy! That's why there haven't been any posts in a while... coming up are some really good cakes, I promise! I worked a 13, then a 14, then a 15 hour day... whew! We had a bunch of weddings then Zoobalee at the Roger Williams Park Zoo on Saturday. We made 20 sheet cakes for the event and ended up only going thru 5 of them. We had to recruit people to take home full sheet cakes! When told to make food for 2000... only make half that! But even though it cost us a lot in labor and supplies, it was tons of fun and for a good cause. Here are the display cakes we took with us... people really seemed to like them.

I thought I was busy before...

It's Thursday... and there's still so much left to do. We have 17 cake orders this week, for us, that's a lot! There's Sarah, Tiffany and I baking Monday and Tuesday (and some Wed.), then Tiffany, Me and Keri to cut, crumb fill and frost Wednesday and Thursday. Then Keri, Tiffany, myself and Ashley to decorate on Friday... we have 14 cakes to decorate tomorrow! I'm betting we'll be decorating Sundays cakes on Saturday between tastings and deliveries. 

Wow! I'm happy, scared, a lot stress, happy again, and slightly overwhelmed! If this keeps up we'll be hiring, but I don't want to count my cakes before their baked, I'm going to see what happens next month when the wedding side calms down a bit. If we're still getting as many last minute orders as we currently are, then another baker will be added! 

Ok... it's 8:30 pm... time to go home and have some dinner. Back in 12!

Brides.com contacted us a few weeks ago asking if we had any beach themed wedding cakes that could be included in their summer wedding cakes feature. Luckily Emily had made a beautiful sunset, beach themed cake, "The Embrace". We sent them the picture and they featured it on their site! Thanks, we are honored to be part of Brides.com.
