It's Almost Been a Month!

This Friday will mark four weeks for us!  Things went much smoother this past week and we are starting to get a routine down, which is a relief.  Still putting in lots of hours, but not crazy hours!

We had plenty of special orders again this weekend and we participated in Taste of Telegraph on Saturday evening.  All of our samples were gone within 45 minutes!  I think they liked us!

This was our table!

Mini cupcakes that we made for Taste of Telegraph!

A customer ordered cookies for a golf tournament that was benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training.  Golf ball cookies and a little cooke with a golf flag and the "TNT" for Team in Training.

This was a cookie bouquet that we made for a 30th birthday girl.

A large strawberry cake for a 1st birthday party.

A golf cake for a birthday party.

And, a cute little girl celebrated the morning of her second birthday with us and a strawberry cupcake.

We are just about booked with special orders for this coming weekend.  Just remember, if you will be needing a cake, cookies, cupcakes or any other dessert for an upcoming special occasion - please call us as soon as possible to get your order on the calendar.  Our weekends are filling up quickly!

We changed our Saturday hours this past weekend and it seemed to be a good decision.  From now on, we will be open from 9:00 - 3:00 on Saturdays.  We didn't have anyone that wanted in before 9:00 and just a few that wanted in after 3:00, so for now we are sticking to these hours on Saturdays. 

Starting October 1, we will be thinking pink in honor of breast cancer awareness month!   Our pink cupcakes - strawberry or raspberry - will be topped with pink ribbon sprinkles and we will be keeping track of the sales and donating a percentage to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000 and the St. Louis Komen Race has been a staple for us every June.  We will also have pink ribbon cookies available for pre-order by the dozen, and maybe a few available each week for walk-ins.  We will donate a percentage of the cookie sales, as well.  Can't wait to see what we are able to accomplish in the next month with your help!

We are looking forward to another busy week!  Hope you decide to stop by!
