As we are approaching the end of 2013 and looking forward to the new year I have news I would like to share with you all.
Beginning January 2014, Cake Believe will be taking a hiatus.
First and foremost, I would like to thank all of my wonderful clients who return to me each and every year to help celebrate those special moments in their lives. I would not be the cake artist I am today if it weren’t for your faith in me. Many of you I consider friends and I love seeing your kids as they grow, helping welcome babies to your families and being a part of celebrating the loving moments of weddings and anniversaries. I am so grateful you have chosen my art to be a part of your special days. Business has really grown beyond the work of one person and I have spent many months considering this change.
The things I am looking forward to: 1) SLEEP! Most weekends I operate on very few hours of sleep and lots of caffeine (I never thought I would still be pulling all-nighters so many years after college!)! 2) Family time on the weekends. 3) A kitchen that isn’t covered in SUGAR! ;)
Things I will miss: 1) Meeting new people and seeing familiar friendly faces. 2) The great smiles and looks of wonder as someone first sets eyes on their cake! That has been the priceless gifts I have received when delivering cakes.
When I started this venture it was to give birthday cakes to my own children that were homemade with love only the way a mother can make. As a hobbyist caker, I have put so much of myself into each and every cake, whether for my child or someone elses. I have grown tremendously as a baker, cake artist and as a mother. Recently I found as I was sorting through my pictures of the last few years, they are mostly cakes/cookies and the like and very few of my own kids and family time. As we sometimes get reminded in life, each moment we have together is a gift AND kids grow up WAY TOO FAST. I want to be able to spend more time with my family before the kids are leading their separate lives and moving on and up in the world.
So while I have loved every moment of creating special cakes and goodies to help other families celebrate, this hiatus will allow me to spend everyday moments (especially weekends) with my family. I can’t wait to see what my photo downloads are going to contain.
I don’t know what the future holds and when or if Cake Believe will begin operating again. But I thank you all for your faith and support of my business. I love you all!
Thanks for thinking “Cake Believe”!
