Well a belated “Happy New Year” to all of my Pretty Cakes subscribers. I hope you are all doing well!
I have some exciting bits of news to share since my last post in Early December…
First of all… I am EXTREMELY busy with orders! Dozens of sweets have been created in the past month and I am so thrilled and grateful for the confidence people have shown for my abilities to make them a wonderful treat for their special occasion! Thank you all so much!
Valentine’s Day is around the corner and I have created beautiful Cake Pop Roses and exciting heart shaped sugar cookies to mark the 2016 holiday!
Next on the list of exciting news… I have signed on for my very first Wedding Show. London Ontario is hosting a Wedding Show on February 20th and 21st this year and I have been invited to be the ONLY Cake Designer at the show! I am so excited and the kitchen is full of Styrofoam pieces for me to create beautiful display cakes for my booth. I am going to feature the Stringwork Cakes that I am becoming well known for as well as more traditional and nontraditional cakes. I am also going to showcase the beautiful sugar cookie creations I have done in the past for the lucky couple to give as favours to their guests!
February 29 is National Cupcake Day for SPCA’s and Humane Societies and I am thrilled to be partnering with my local Veterinary Hospital (Romeo Pet Hospital) in Stratford to provide Chocolate Cat Cupcakes and Vanilla Dog cupcakes to raise money and help our furry friends! 100% of ALL the money raised will be donated to our Stratford SPCA!
On March 24th I have been asked to be a vendor and participate in the London Ontario Rockey’s Harley Davidson Ladies Night for Breast Cancer! I will be baking and decorating Harley Cookies (like this… only pink instead of orange!) and accepting donations for them at the event and giving THAT money to RHD as a donation for Breast Cancer! I am also making a massive Bar and Shield cake for this event and putting coupons in the grab bags as well as participating in the silent auction!
Finally I feel it is extremely necessary to change up the format on this blog/website etc because the idea of trying to do a blog post for each and every cake is obviously NOT working… I am behind approx 45 posts! There are so many cakes I have yet to share here… I will most likely be doing weekly posts!
The Website is actually getting a major overhaul. I will be categorizing the photo galleries… introducing a FAQ section and adding many many more elements to the site.
So big news and big changes… so excited and so grateful for my wonderful life! Stay tuned… 2016 is going to be a great ride!
Love you all!
P.S. A warm thank you to all the people from Facebook who routinely read, like, comment on and share my posts. This blog and the Facebook Page are my only vehicles for online promotion right now and I feel totally blessed for all the support I receive! I hope I can honour everyone by paying it forward!Tags: Cake Decorating, cookies, Harley-Davidson, National Cupcake Day, piping, Pretty Cakes, Royal Icing, SPCA, Valentine's Day, Valentines Cake Pops, Wedding Cake, Wedding Show
