This week has been a bit crazy. In addition to working my full time job, in 3 days, I completed 6 different orders, attended a college graduation and I'm not done yet. I love being this busy because I know my business is picking up, which is exactly what I want! Below is just a glimpse into my crazy schedule from this week. It is weeks like this where it pays to be organized. Plus everything is so brightly colored on my calendar and in my planner; it is so festive!
With that being said, to recover from this week, Lb Cakes will not be taking any orders for the week of Christmas, December 20th to December 27th. Being I am so bad at saying "no", and I always want to help everyone, I am laying it all out there now and closing the doors for the week. I also need to prep for the Go Show happening in less than a month! Yikes!
Below was an order for a Law School Graduate here at UND on Thursday. It was a combination of cookies and cream cupcakes and white almond cupcakes. The picks are just pictures that I printed on card stock and attached to a pick. Another order from Thursday consisted of white almond cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes, topped with graduation picks.
My orders for Friday consisted of two graduation orders and a Christmas order. The first order was a combination of cookies and cream cupcakes and red velvet cupcakes topped with graduation hats and diplomas. The Christmas cupcakes were a combination of cookies and cream and red velvet cupcakes topped with a cute little Santa! My third order was for Andrew's graduation. It's a white almond cake with edible image and plastic graduation cap.
My second to last order of the weekend that was picked up today, was a kitty cat cake, cookies and cream cupcakes and red velvet cupcakes. It was my first time making a kitty cat cake, which added to this weekend's adventures. I think it turned out really cute and I learned some new techniques so it was a win win!
Now I have to go prep for my last order of the week: my cousin's birthday cake! Time to go learn how to make a coffee cake, wish me luck!
Merry Christmas everyone!
