Thank You 2009!




Oh 2009 - you were a good year. I can say that today, your last, but 8 months ago I wasn't too thrilled. When I was laid off in April, I thought, "It'll be a rough month or two." I had no idea how hard it would be to find another corporate job with benefits. And when my husband's contract wasn't renewed, I'll admit I freaked out a bit. Three kids + no jobs = PANIC. But...my husband found another gig quickly, and it was even better than the last. I passed the time by increasing my cake classes at the local craft store....and dreaming. My day dreams turned into ideas in a notebook and that notebook became a business plan. Fast forward to today - I'm planning my cake gallery...with a little help from my cake testers and biggest supporters. This styrofoam will soon look like a wedding cake and will be sitting in a cake shop window...MY cake shop window! So today I can say, "thank you 2009...and bring it on 2010!"

  2. Congratulations on taking your sickness to a whole new level! ;) Seriously, after reading through your posts it sounds like you have the talent and the business smarts to run a great business. I started my cake business about 5 years ago and never looked back! Best of luck to you!!
