Oh- My- Gawd- You're a REAL baker???
But you can't cook a real meal to save your life!
I know... But I make some mean cookies and some killer cupcakes.
Today I am in my glory and the depths of my fear... I am baking.... for a wedding!
I am the proud owner of my very own cupcake business.
. When I began this amazing journey I made one promise. I would never, ever, make wedding cakes. Why? Because I doubt myself. Birthdays happen every year. If I mess up or disappoint someone I have not ruined a once in a lifetime opportunity for
them, hopefully. With any luck they only have one wedding. Well last year my bestie asked if I would make her wedding tower of cupcakes. I could not say no... and it turned out well. REALLY well. Around that time I was approached by another bride who said
she loved my work and waned to discuss my making her wedding cupcakes and a small cake. In my head I thought no way, but I will do the consult and she will see that I am not nearly what she wants and pick someone else. I was wrong. She was amazing and I could
not say no to her. And lo and behold she was asking for something that fell within my skill set. I CAN do this and I am EXCITED to do this for her.
Now the day has come, preparations have been made and the cakes are in the oven. My stomach on the other hand is in the floor. As I tick off each step, I can only hope that it comes out to my perfectionist up to snuff taste. She has been an amazing bride
and a wonderful client, I truly want to make her proud. Nerves be damned we all have to push our limits and try our best otherwise we will never know how awesome we truly are.
Well I must go check and see how everything is... If you do not hear from me next week I either became famous for this cupcake tower/cake combo or I failed miserably and am hiding under my bed with my stuffed bear.
