I will no longer be part of Something Sweet For You and Kristie will be taking over.
Throughout the years, Kristie and I had fun doing custom orders for people and selling our goodies at the baker’s market. Even though we only sleep for a few hours the night before a market, we are always so happy with our finished products. Sometimes I still think back to those days when we would talk about baking together and realize how far we’ve come since then.
About 1 year ago, I gave birth to a sweet baby girl. Who knew taking care of a baby would be so much work? My husband and I don’t even remember what it feels like to have a full night of uninterrupted sleep. I’m serious. Everything you do (or try to) ends up taking three times as long (or more) to complete. Just when you think you have some free time to do something for yourself, baby wakes up, cries, pees/poops, is hungry, or just want your attention. Before I was pregnant, I would talk to a close friend of mine (she has 2 kids now) and she would tell me random things about her life as a mom. I never thought much about it until I became a mom myself. My first thought was “Omg…everything she said is sooo true!! There is no time for anything.” If you think your life is so busy now, just wait until you have a baby (or two). What your life is like now will feel like a breeze.
I haven’t stopped baking and don’t intend to, so don’t worry. It just takes me a bit longer to plan things out and to deal with a baby who ONLY wants mommy most of the time.
Before I end this post, I’d like to thank all my friends and family who supported me during the time I was with SSFY. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! You guys are the best! <3
In my last post, I made a blue bird cake pop for a trial run for a wedding and am so happy with the final results! The wedding was at The Four Season for a beautiful bride named Angie and a handsome groom named Vic. Their wedding reception was beautiful and inspired by Tiffany blue. They had ordered blue bird cake pops (matched perfectly!), but I wanted to do something special for them so I made a bride & groom blue bird cake pop and it turned out super cute!
Take a look at our set up, isn’t the cake pop stand beautiful? I absolutely love it! and you can change the ribbon to any color you want. The cake stand holds approx 145 cake pops. I’m so lucky to have found this and now when you order you can rent this for any event!
This week I made some trial cake pops, I have a wedding order for blue bird cake pops and wanted to see how they would turn out. The blue bird cake pops turned out pretty well and the bride to be is super happy! I can’t wait to make them and see all the blue birds together.
I had leftover dough and wanted to make cake pops I’ve never made before and was inspired by Bakerella‘s Lorax she made from Dr. Suess. I don’t know how Bakerella does it, but her work is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!!! She must be super patient to make all these unique beautiful cake pops! I followed her method and dipped all the remaning balls in orange chocolate and then made the mustache and furry eyebrows. I think it turned out pretty cute! but I found the eyes to be super hard to make as I had to cut each sprinkle. I ended up making a few and then didn’t want to make any more as it was getting very late (I’m a night owl), so I ended making monsters (they were easier!) out of the remaining cake pops. My monster looks so much like Mike from Monsters Inc! that may be my next project
A couple of weeks ago I was asked to make bunny cupcakes for a birthday party. The birthday boy was turning 100 days old. In Chinese tradition, when a baby turns 100 days old, it’s time for a celebration. This celebration represents the wish that the baby will live 100 years (if i’m wrong, I’m sorry!). To celebrate, family and friends come together over a meal.
I was asked to make bunny cupcakes because the birthday boy’s chinese zodiac is a rabbit. I was racking my brain as to how I was going to make these bunnies, but after a few bad attempts, I was able to find the perfect way! YAY!!
These cupcakes would be perfect for Easter too!!! I can’t wait to make more!
How was your Valentine’s Day? What did you do? Who did you spend it with?
Valentine’s Day does not always have to be spent with your boyfriend or girlfriend but with any loved one. It’s just a special day to let the ones you love know that you care about them. I spent my Valentine’s Day spreading the love and spending some time with R.
What better way to say Happy ♥ Day then to give them something sweet to eat! I had a few orders for Valentine’s; I baked about 4 dozen Hidden Heart Cupcakes and 1 Cupcake Bouquet. I hope all the kids at school, the coworkers, and my friends enjoyed the Hidden Heart Cupcakes! The Cupcake Bouquet was for a special wife! With the leftover, I made some cake pops.
Check out this cute card I got, inside says ‘iguana love you forever’
I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s whether you did something elaborate or just hung out with a loved one ♥
