We are still trying to get into a routine of some kind and just when we think we know what we are doing, we find out that we really do not. Judging how many cupcakes we need each day has been quite challenging!
With all of that said, it is still exciting to walk into our bakery, nearly everyday, and realize that it actually exists. It is not just a dream but a reality! And, we have customers! Thank you to everyone that stops by to visit us each day.
We were interviewed during our first week in business and had an article written about us this past Wednesday at patch.com. Here is the link if you missed it or if you would like to see how it all began http://mehlville-oakville.patch.com/articles/oakville-moms-are-taking-the-cake-with-icing.
We have been really busy in the special order department the last two weeks. Just a reminder - if you need to place a special order, please do so early. Our weekends fill up fast and there are a limited number of orders that we can fill each week. We were completely booked this weekend and had to turn down several orders, which we don't like to do. Because we are a small bakery, with limited equipment and staffing, there are only so many baking hours in a day for us, which limits the number of special orders that we can fill. We will do our best, but we may have to say no occasionally.
Speaking of special orders, the following are a few pictures from some of our orders the past two weeks.
