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!

Europe

5 Apr

I have been so horrible in updating this blog, I’m so sorry.  My life right now is just so crazy and busy with work, I barely have any time to blog and have just been doing quick uploads of pictures on facebook.  But now that i’m a bit less busy (not quite) I will be doing my best to update this site.

I mentioned a few post back that I had gone to Europe in December 2010.  This was my second time going to Europe, the first time was back in 2008 and I went to Venice, Rome, Florence, Paris and London.  I went for approximately 3 weeks and it was fun and tiring at the same time, haha!  This time I was away for 10 days and I went to London, Munich, and Paris.

We landed in London first, then went to Munich, then Paris, then back to London to fly home.  I’ll start with Munich first; Munich is known for their Christmas Markets and this was something I went to see specifically.  The markets look so beautiful in the morning, clear sky’s and snow always makes everything look wonderful!

At the Christmas Markets they sell lots of food, booze, and souvenirs.   The pictures below are just some of the amazing foods they sell, unfortunately, I couldn’t capture everything.

Not only did we go during the day to the market, but we went at night and OMG it looked so beautiful at night!!!
