OMG OMG OMG!!!!!! So the Holidays are HERE! and its always a stressful time of the year...gifts...decorating the house...school plays etc. NOW lets add CAKE ORDERS to the list!
One of our biggest order for December is Weddingbells Magazine. I love doing events for them! Its a pleasure...I'm just a little panicked about getting everything done! Just their order is about 145 cake-pops, 145 decorated cookies, cakes, and 145 cupcakes....Not to mention other orders that come up as we get closer to the Holidays 20 of this...20 of that....! But like always........The end result will be... beautiful sweets!!! and an exhausted team!!!! Yesterday I bought everything for the decorating part of the orders, 10+ kg of sugar, etc etc ! Today was planning day..What goes where, colors etc. Tomorrow we will make all the fondant... gumpaste etc.
My brother has already started buying all the baking ingredients...(I hope! :p )
I always get really excited when I get any order, and of course I always like to complicate myself even more. I am somewhat of a perfectionist... I never say No to a design....I actually love a challenge! Of course people then look at me and ask how I will make that....I always say..."I don't know!..." but somehow I know it will get done!
Now its probably a good time to get all my Christmas music on my iphone! ohhh forgot to mention... I'm a little crazy when it comes to cakes. I usually get into character! For example I had to watch some clips of the movie Star Wars to make Darf Vader...well I kept saying "I am your father" the whole time...its crazy... For Buzz it was...."To infinity and beyond!!"... Woody..."I got a snake on my boot!"... Handy Manny...The theme song! etc etc etc... and you have to make the little voices that go with the character too! So I guess I have to get my favorite song of all time......SANTA BABY!!!! My family thinks I'm a little crazy...sometimes I talk cake too! everything I see I always ask myself..."can I make that into a cake?"... I guess that is where the talent comes from....PASSION!!!!
Well that is my little story for tonight.... Stay tuned to read and see photos of updates!!!!!!!
