It’s been a long time….

11 Apr

I’m sorry, it’s been a long time and I haven’t updated this blog for almost a year.  As you can see in the last post, my partner, Crystal is not longer part of Something Sweet For You.  She given birth to a wonderful baby girl and has now devoting her time to her family 🙂  I’m so happy for her and sad at the same time 😦  But she’ll keep baking!!!

Last year was a busy year with work, getting healthy, traveling, and a bit of baking.  Work has always been crazy and with trying to be more healthy with cooking and working out there hasn’t been much time to bake and experiment.  My family took our grandma to Europe for the first time and she had such a great time! I’ll have to do a special post just on Europe!

We did get some great orders last year from celebrating weddings to celebrating anti-bullying day.  Here is a few snaps from 2013!

 

Star Trek
I was asked to make a Star Trek themed cake pop and my client was looking for Spock and Captain Kirk cake pop. It wasn’t an easy task 😐 but I think it turned out pretty good! 😀

Golf
We had the opportunity to participate in the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) cake auction at the ALS golf tournament and we made some golf themed cake pops. The Cake Auction raised over $3000 alone! We were so happy to participate to such a great cause 😀

WeddingBride & Groom My good friends got married last year in August and we made their wedding favours for them. We made over 350 cake pops, packaged, and delivered them. It was a beautiful wedding and we were happy to be a part of their special day!

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! 😀

Happy Belated ♥ Day!

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.Valentine's Cupcake

What a busy couple of months,  I finally have time to sit down, blog and bake!  I can’t wait to show you the Valentine’s Cupcake I made this weekend!  I love making unique cupcakes and cake pops and every time there is a holiday I’m always thinking of what holiday themed goodies I can make.  These cupcakes remind me of filled cupcakes because there’s always a surprise inside!  Sorry to say, no fillings in this cupcake, but rather something else special.

Valentine's Cupcake

Cut open the cupcake (the right way) and you’ll find a hidden heart!!!  This is so cute and a bit time consuming..haha, but the results are worth it, just like your significant other 😉

Sweetheart Pops

I also wanted to show you what we have been up to in December, check out the photos below.

Snowman Cake Pop   We were asked to participate in a Pop Up Store at Blenz in Vancouver and we couldn’t say no!  I just love how the snowman turned out, he is absolutely adorable!

Wreath CupcakeAlso, I did some personal baking for family and friends.  I gave out Homemade Cookie Jars.  Homemade Cookie Jars are inexpensive and easy.  All you need is a jar (found mine at Homesense), dry ingredients, instructions, and voila!  I ended up tying a ribbon around the jar and printed my instructions and clipped it on with a clothes pin; simple and fast!

Tri-Cities Baker’s Market

24 May

We are so excited to be in the Tri-Cities Baker’s Market this Saturday May 28, 2011 from 10am-2pm.  This will be the very first Baker’s Market in the Coquitlam area and the brains behind this is Kimberley Mulla aka The Marshmallow Lady (that’s what I call her….but she doesn’t know it…but she makes the yummiest marshmallows!!! ).  This market will be there for 5 days in the Summer and the first day will be this Saturday!

This is about more than a market, Kimberley is dedicated in connecting the Tri-Cities community with quality,  handmade food.  She is also committed to engaging the children and youth in learning about food and baking at home.  With this said, there will be family baking demos about teaching parents and kids to bake and cook together.  This is a great opportunity for families to get together and spend a Saturday morning or afternoon while supporting your local bakers.

Again, there are going to be some amazing bakers with a variety of goodies, so please try to stop on by!!!  If you do go, please come by our table and say hi!  We’ll be there with our delicious goodies and this is a great opportunity to purchase in small quantities!

See you there 😉
