The year is almost gone and I just needed to say THANK YOU for your support and encouraging words.
I get a new request, I research, I bake, design and deliver. I never feel it is complete though until I post on this blog. I thrive on your feedback and because of the exposure here and on Facebook, I haven't had to make a flyer, place an ad for my work or even display business cards somewhere. It is because of your reccomendations to your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers that I am able to keep it going!! I have made snapfish books to show off the variety of cupcakes I have made in the past year and if anyone would like to show in your office, meetings or home, let me know and I can get one out to you along with a sample.
A year ago, I had some reactions to my new endeavor that had me second guessing it myself but I had to take a chance and it has paid off! I will be making some changes in 2011 to keep it a success. There will be more options for frosting and going to experiment with some new recipes to offer more choices for cake as well. I even plan on using fillings!! I'm also going to charge for delivery based upon the mileage/location. The business part of it is not my strength and I've been advised by many of YOU to make these changes.
So THANK YOU for all the wonderful challenges and for the opportunity to allow my cupcakes to be a part of your celebrations. I am eager to get baking in 2011!!

My best friend's son, Lucas, had an event at his school covering many holidays celebrated at this time of year around the world. I tried to represent many of the various holidays. Kwanzaa, Hanukah, Christmas, New Year's and Three Kings Day. It was great to see so many designs together as many of my orders are typically consist of just one or two designs. It's great knowing that the cupcakes made Lucas and his friends at school very happy! So when you hear Tis the season, remember there's many who are celebrating in their own different way!

It's time for new beginnings, new goals, a fresh new start. All I ask is that you do not omit Babycakes from 2011! One of my goals is to develop a great tasting cupcake that will give the recipient absolutely no guilt without compromising the quality. I hope that these special New Year Eve's cupcakes will make you feel the way you all make me feel inside....warm!!!

So lucky to get involved with different types of celebrations! These are for a dual 6th Birthday party for Gaby and Sarika! They are hosting their party at their own "spa" called Luxurious Spa Di Da, where guests will be pampered with mani/pedis and yummy gourmet cupcakes! It gets my wheels turning for my own little girl's future parties with her friends. I loved this idea!!

These cupcakes were made for ELEGANT hair salon in Oyster Bay, NY. The client (Roseanne) wanted to surprise the owner with these as Grand Opening support. The customers getting a cut and blow today got a very sweet Thank You to go!
I am always excited with new and original opportunities to have my cupcake creations change the course of someone's day, with a smile!!
