I finally feel like I am getting back on track after a busy summer and some much needed vacation time. I spent the summer up to my elbows in buttercream with many a late night making sugar flowers in the studio. I was 100% focused on making cakes. Unfortunately as a business owner that means I let my accounting pile up, stopped adding pictures to my website and for sure did no blogging. But I am back!
I just updated my website with a ton of new photos from all my work this summer. I plan on tackling my accounting tomorrow and tonight I am blogging. Between the May Long Weekend and the October long weekend I completed 67 cake orders. This includes Wedding cakes, cutter cakes with cupcakes for weddings and tons of cakes for retirements, showers, birthdays and beyond. At times it was stressful but I always managed to get everything completed.
I learned a few new things about myself and confirmed a few things I already knew. I work well under pressure. Sugar flowers are my favourite thing to create. It is important for me to get out and connect with others as being a caker can be very isolating. Working as a creative is absolutely what I should be doing. Even my most stressful days as a caker are better than the drudge that can come with a regular 9-5 job, working for someone else. Taking a vacation and disconnecting can do amazing things for ones soul! Tequila is my friend. I love what I do.
For the next little while I am going to blog about some of my creations. I hope you all enjoy a glimpse into my world and keep coming back for more.
