all’s well that ends well
Carlie is turning one and she wants cake and cupcakes on her special day. Or so her mother I._ told me.
I already blocked September 26 and three days before that in my calendar for this event. I._ booked her reservation with me first week of August which gave me plenty of time to prepare. I got everything planned out and with time to spare leading to the big project (one cake and 100 cupcakes), I got into talks with another client F._ who needs pink flower cupcakes for her daughter’s christening on September 11. Everything was going according to plan … the plans of mice and men! I got a call from I._ first week of September asking if the 12th is still open in my calendar as she was forced to re-schedule due to an unforeseen circumstance. At the same time, F._ confirmed her order of 60 cupcakes for September 11.
Fortunately, all’s well that ends well as I was able to work things out and that included baking 160 cupcakes in one day! But that’s another story.
There was actually a cake included in the package where the party was held but I._ told me she wanted something more. My cake—devil’s food chocolate filled with ganache and covered in shiny chocolate glaze— was to be for display purposes only as the family plan to bring it home; the party cake will be served to the guests. The similarly-flavored cupcakes were to be part of the party favors.
I had my camera at the event but I._ shared with me her and Carlie’s lovely mother-daughter portrait. How cute is Carlie in her birthday regalia? I._ also graciously invited me and my crew to partake of the kiddie feast. They really loved the cake and the cupcakes, she told me afterwards. The children even plucked the chocolate letters off the cake! Thanks, I._for choosing my cake and cupcakes to mark your precious daughter’s special day. It was a real treat working with you!
