Engagement Cake and Cupcakes
Last weekend, I made my first engagement cake and it was a success! The thing I love about cake decorating is that I am able to personalize each cake to each specific person. This cake was special not only because it was for Andrew's cousin, but also because it described their love story. The bride is from Alaska, the groom is from Minnesota and they met at college in Minnesota. Talk about fate! While designing the image to go on this cake, I tried a few different images but I fell in love with the idea that I ended up using. I have always liked this design, and being able to show their love story in a unique way was very exciting for me! I guess you could say I'm a hopeless romantic! By the way boys, Valentine's Day is coming up!
After a fun weekend in the Cities, it was back to the grind with my full time job. Through work, I received an order for Friday for gluten free cupcakes. You would think after making these enough times, I wouldn't be nervous anymore but I'm so afraid of getting someone sick! I'm very cautious about cleaning my utensils and surfaces but you never know where gluten is lurking. In the future, I hope to experiment with more flavors of gluten free cupcakes, but since I'm so paranoid, it hasn't happened. On the way back from the Cities, we stopped at Nadia's Cakes and they had an interesting statement about their gluten free products. They called them "probably gluten free" cupcakes. There is always that off chance that there is gluten in the area that could get mixed into the products. From now on, I think I will call my cupcakes "probably gluten free cupcakes." On that note, time to prepare for next weeks orders and update my planner and calendar! If you have an event coming up, please check out my calendar to see if I'm available for your date! My weekends are filling up fast!
