Happy Weekend!

I finally revamped my Hair Petals shop! My studio setup made such a difference with the product photography. I listed 10 new pieces today and have a LOT of new creations in the works. Here are some photos of my new listed petals.....

Now that's done I have a handful of new cupcake orders to bake for new Willow Glen clients. Us Willow Glen peeps LOVE cuppies. Happy Labor Day everyone.

Enjoy :)

Checking In

We returned from our lovely vacation less than a week ago and have been in hiding ever since :) Sean and I loved every minute of our adventure and look forward to returning again in 2009. Pura Vida!

In the next few weeks I will be revamping my Hair Petals Etsy shop. Be on the lookout for my new look and beautiful new hair pieces. I have over 20 new Hair Petals that I was unable to post prior to our departure. Now it's back to business!

Late September, I will be selling Mira Cakes for my dear friend Giselle's Team in Training fundraiser at Nirvana Salon in Los Gatos. She will be hosting a Day of Beauty to raise funds for her upcoming TNT marathon. The date is to be determined and I will share all of the details as they come in!
NEWSFLASH ~ I have an opportunity to sell Mira Cakes at a very popular South Bay restaurant. Had a great conversation yesterday with one of the owners of this eatery and this could be BIG. Once things firm up I will share all of the details. :)

On a side note, the thought of the upcoming fall weather has my brain in *holiday mode*. I look forward to decorating my mini *year round tree* ....which will probably be fulled decorated for Halloween in mid - September. I know. I'm bad, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE to deco.

Brides & Birthdays

One final baking session before some well deserved rest and relaxation! Now that my mixer is back on it's shelf I can finally pack my suitcase. NOW I'm getting excited.

Below are cupcakes for two beautiful brides that are getting married here in the Bay Area. Their wedding colors are pear green and brown, one of my favorite color combinations. They chose my signature Red Velvet and Lemon Poppy Seed for the shower today. Congratulations!

By request, I have been making more cakes for close friends and referrals. I am not good at cake writing whatsoever! Here is a Red Velvet layer cake w/Vanilla Cream Buttercream and chocolate chip sides. Happy Birthday to my friend Derek's Dad "Willie"!
