this is it!!!! this is what all of the stress, tears, late nights, early mornings, phone calls,  emails, money!, designing, dreaming, pinning, recipe testing, excitement, anticipation, sighs of relief and pure joy, etc etc were all about!

i have been open for just over a month and i want to say a million thank yous to all of my wonderful customers so far! everyday i am so relieved when my first customer walks through the door and i cant believe how supportive everyone has been, thank you thank you thank you!!

thank you to all of my clients for helping me build my business over the past 5 years- one of the biggest / sweetest surprises to me was that my business grew as my clients families grew- wedding cakes, baby showers, christening cakes, first birthdays, second birthdays, new siblings being born- then more christening cakes, first birthday cakes, now i am up to 5th, 6th and 7th birthdays! it really is unbelievably heart warming to be a part of so many special occasions!!
