So excited to announce my Facebook page has made it to 1,000 Likes! I started this journey a little over two months ago and I can't believe how far it's come already. So far I've gotten to do my first wedding cake, and a multitude of cupcakes and macarons. I've dabbled in shipping macarons and have had success many times! Cupcakes on the other hand, not so much. 

I also got to do cupcakes for the Target Halloween photo shoot! Incredible opportunity I am so excited about! When I get the go-ahead to share the pictures I will! I made three different types of cupcakes and we'll see which ones made the shot. It'll be a couple months till I get to see them, but I'm so excited already!

I also have the opportunity to attend an event in June as a vendor. There will be around 600 attendees, and I can't wait for the opportunity for all of them to try my cupcakes and macarons! I'm not sure how many samples to make, but it's for sure going to be a lot! 

I have been working as a full time CT Technologist at a clinic on the U of M campus for the last 10 years. Baking has always been my passion, and for the first time in a long time I will get to focus on it. I gave my month's notice last week and I will be working part time Mondays and Wednesdays at another job. I will have lots more time to focus and grow my cupcake business and of course spend more quality time with my sweet 2.5 year old Caleigh! 

I will also finally be able to cook dinner for my family. Working till 7:00pm is a little rough when it comes to cooking dinner. Can't wait to find new recipes and provide amazing meals for my family. If you have any recommendations for delicious dishes let me know! Can't wait for all the opportunities coming and the ones I have had in the past. I have the most amazing family, friends and supporters. Love this journey I am on and can't wait for the future adventures! Thanks again for your support. Sweet weekend to you all!
