The small photo collage are some examples from last year. Cute Frankenstein cake, jack-o-lantern and one eyed monster cupcakes, as well as some neutral fall cupcakes with leaves and scarecrows. The possibilities are endless! I have a lot of other ideas, so just contact me if if you want to order and I will be sure to design something around your wants/needs.
Not into the whole "fall" thing?....well lets hope you are least into the Green Bay Packers! Now, now, settle down if you are fan of another team, I can bake goodies for your team too....I'm just going to focus on the Packers...well, since I cheer for them!
Shout-out to my Husband
Well....for the October open day, I asked my husband if he wanted to help me. He does wedding deliveries with me...he even does wedding deliveries solo now when we have multiple deliveries! So he took a vacation day from work to help me at the bakery...allll day....all 13+ hours. I can't park in front of my building due to the 2 hour parking regulations, so I rent a spot nearby. Since I only have one spot, my husband came in when I did...wakey wakey at 3am!
I kicked off the morning by baking what I needed to bake for the weekend orders (the ones that didn't go with the open day). While I did this, my husband chilled a bit until I could take a moment to give him something to do. He wanted to help, so he added the last minute touches to some of the cupcakes (pumpkin on the pumpkin cupcakes; chocolate covered pretzel on the sweet n' salty), and he put the finishing touches on the pumpkin bread by adding a baker's twine bow.
Around 5:45 am he started getting nervous because I had yet to show him how the cash register works. So we got that taken care of, did a practice run, stocked the cases and opened the doors...and it went smoothly all day. So smoothly that I told him he now needs to help me at all open days! I don't know if that will happen, but a girl can dream. If he wasn't running register, he was helping me restock the cases, packing an order if there was a line (I'd do one, he'd do one), holding the door to the case if it made things faster, or grabbing stickers.
It was another successful open day for sure! We ran out of quite a few flavors in the morning and were limited to just a few most of the afternoon. I promise I made a lot; I'm sorry if you did not get any or you were disappointed to only find limited flavors available. Just how many did I make/sell?
11 mini loaves of pumpkin bread
P.S.- for all you chocolate chip cookie dough lovers who didn't get any- I started with 133 of them and ran out by 9 or 10am- I feel like I can never make enough of them. Sorry!
Thanks for another week of orders and for another successful open day!!
