A Fishing Birthday & a New HLC Menu
This week's featured cake is a whimsical fishing theme that will end up being the centerpiece of the party! Tennyson's 2nd birthday will be well celebrated with a cake, lots of cupcakes, and even some cake pops. You just can't go wrong with strawberry, vanilla bean, and chocolate!
The cake pops turned out SO cute, too! If you follow HLC on Instagram, then you caught this on Thursday.
My first few days without classes was quite liberating. I worked as long as I needed to during the day (and into the evening) while still managing to cook decent dinners for the family. I have to say how nice it was to get back to normal on a personal level. At the same time, I have completely lost my boundaries when it comes to clocking out at the end of the day. When the cakery is on my mind, it's hard not to brainstorm at all hours.
Speaking of brainstorming, I have had this one my mind for a long, long time and I have finally decided that it's time to bring a few of my ideas to fruition. When it comes time to open a storefront, I don't want to be limited to custom orders. Part of my business plan is to offer more than custom cakes. You're probably thinking a cupcake case would be perfect, right? Right? Well, that's actually not at all what I want to do. Don't be too disappointed! I have a better idea. In fact, what I actually plan to do is offer homemade COOKIES of all shapes, sizes, and variety.
Starting NEXT WEEK, I will begin my menu expansion by offering one new flavor every week. These cookies will be baked from scratch, beautifully packaged, and offered up on Facebook until they run out. I plan to put together a calendar of the upcoming flavors in the near future, so if you're a cookie lover like I am, you'll want to keep an eye out. This will give you the ability to pre-order your favorite flavors. And ooooohhhhhh, that recipe list is growing!
Happy Saturday, friends! Get outside and enjoy that gorgeous weather while it lasts!
