Bakers aren't always full Sugar & Spice...

Freddie Kruger, Chucky, Jason, Jack (yawn). Hmmm, mildly entertaining horror films those characters were in I suppose...
Wait, they were supposed to be scary? 

Huh, do those characters and movies actually scare some people? 
Well, I will concede that Jack Nicholson is pretty convincing 
in "The Shining" but he's pretty terrifying all on his own anyway.

 (Wait, did you hear something?)
*Looking over shoulder*
(Must be my imagination. Could have sworn I heard something though...)
I have witnessed the true visage of horror
that inspires terror in all who survive it.
I'll tell you right now, it is not a pretty sight to behold.
What could it be you ask? 
It is...
(sound of creaking door)
Oh No!
No!no! NO!(whimper) 
I didn't think she'd look in here!
channeling Jack Nicholson I swear

Darn it! I knew our coffee beans were getting on the low side! 
Why? Why didn't I place the order yesterday?! Why?!

If she's found me...then...
that means that...(sniffle)!
all of the others have
already fallen before
the "lack of caffeine" rage.
*tears up a little*
I am sorry my fellow bakers. 
I knew not what I unleashed until it was too late.

"Quick! Look behind you! Crazed non caffeinated baker!
The coffee shipment just arrived!"
(wrests knife from grasp)

Ha HA! Take that!  
(gory stabbing scene follows)

The bakers are safe!
Oh...wait...that's right...
she got to them first. Darn.

Hmmm, time to hire replacements I guess.

Now...Where did I leave that dustpan?
And I'm pretty sure I'm going to need the bleach for this cleanup.

Seriously, people. 
Never, Ever, EVER!
Get between a Baker and her first morning cup of Coffee.
This is the third incident this week.
Geez, maybe someone needed to switch to decaf.

Wedding season

This barn is Gorgeous!
Wedding season is winding down.
The rainy season is winding up.
Here are a few Wedding cakes that we made this season.

The locations that we got to are always interesting
whether for the beauty of the space
or the challenge of the location;
four flights of stairs and a forty pound cake
make for an interesting delivery,
especially when your arms get tired two flights up ;)
The additional toppers are so cute!
Setting up at one of the country farm locations.
Ready for the Reception.
One of the many winery locations, up a long & very windy road.

Guarding the entrance.

Sometimes, the locations aren't just where we deliver to.
Set and ready.
I'm always a sucker for flowers as a cake topper.
Well, that's a small sampling of the cakes that we made
for the Wedding season.
Hope that you enjoyed seeing them as much as we enjoyed making them.
