It’s OCTOBER. How did we get here? Last time I posted was July…JULY. Sigh. This is long overdue. Long overdue, indeed.
Quick recap: it’s been busy over here. In my almost-first-whole-year in business, I’ve had the pleasure of creating multiple wedding cakes and cupcakes and cookies and donuts, prepping cakes for styled shoots and specialty displays, setting up loads of cake tastings with the best clients and meeting so many other fantastic vendors. I got a new mixer because Big Mama bit the dust (taking name suggestions for the new mixer, btw.) I was featured on the Satin Ice blog (they're a major fondant manufacturer). My husband and I are selling our house and renovating a new one. As we speak I’m prepping for a holiday baking special, so hang on to your Santa suits because it’s about to be ON.
Oh! I also won first place for “Cakes” in the News4Jax "Jax Best" competition!!! Maybe I should have mentioned that first…more to come on that soon but needless to say I’m VERY EXCITED!! SHOUTY CAPITALS A MUST! :)
As far as business goes for this fledgling entrepreneur, life is good. However, there is always room to improve and one area I need to work is actually this blog, and content in general. It’s really hard to think about producing compelling content when you’re elbow deep in buttercream. But, I have to do it. No rest for the sugar-covered weary.
So I put this question to you, dear readers: what is it that you want? Almost everyone in the world has a blog these days but what makes you want to come back here and read what I have to say? Is it charming stories of personal life, technical posts about cake and baking, are you tired of reading and just want me to do some how-to videos? Do tell! Take this one-question survey to add your input: https://goo.gl/forms/thDS7bn5rt5MGPAW2
I do promise to post more regularly though, and I’ll be sharing some more details soon about Jax Best, the holidays, and more. Stay with me!!
