I will admit that I am extremely critical of my work. While I think I can bake a really delicious tasting cookie, the decorating part is still something I'm perfecting. But for the first time since I started this little venture, I was truly happy with what I was able to come up with, and I think my clients were happy too.
This was a 3 night affair. I made dough and baked on night one, put down the base layer of royal icing on night two, and applied the bow ties and additional decorations on night 3. They were a lot of work, but I enjoyed every minute of it.
The baking business has certainly kept me busy lately (busy enough to totally slack off blogging for the past couple of weeks), but I'm excited at the opportunities that lie ahead. Yes, I'm still working full time, and I don't anticipate that changing any time soon. But it's nice to have a creative outlet to balance the stress of my job. I have weekly jobs lined up from now through the end of November, and I'm looking forward to sharing more fun projects with you.
And I promise.....one day soon we will finally have the bathroom remodel post finished (it's too pretty not to share). That post rests on Hank's shoulders though, and I will bug him until it gets done.
