This afternoon is the bake sale. Drop by for a cupcake, or if you don’t live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama for some weird reason then you don’t have to. I’ll be posting pics of the baking yesterday and the finished cuppycakes after everything is over tonight, and I’ll tell you about all of Cakeybake’s grand bake sale adventures too! 😀

Hello all!

Now THAT was a lovely afternoon!

I hope you’re all having a glorious Wednesday afternoon. I know it has been a perfect day here in Tuscaloosa. The leaves are all changing colors, the breeze is cool and refreshing and the sunlight is shining for all to enjoy.

These flowers are so soft and delicate.

Ahh, it seems a lovely day to make cupcakes, doesn’t it? Then again…for me, every day is a good day to make cupcakes!

Last night, I received instructions on how to properly create decorative roses with a pastry bag and a steady hand! Soon I will master it and create cupcakes with beautiful and tasty roses on them. 🙂

The blog is getting higher numbers of views each day! I’m very grateful for the support and I hope Cakeybake starts gathering a bigger and bigger following. Perhaps someday my delicious readers will also comment. 😉 That will be the day, mm?


Frosting November 9, 2009

I have a question for you all.

What’s your favorite type of frosting?

I would also ask for some suggestions on what flavors of frosting to try, whether the cake should only be chocolate/vanilla with flavored frosting, or if the cake itself should also be flavored.

I am going to look up several recipes on caramel sea salt frosting and try my hand. Pictures, directions and review soon to follow!

What else is new? Cakeybake now has Ustream and Youtube. And don’t forget about  Twitter and Facebook!

The Youtube account is still under construction, but if you want to keep up, go ahead and subscribe, and you’ll be one of the very first folks to see the Official Cakeybake Youtube site!!!

Thanks for your support, and make sure to comment and leave your suggestions for what your favorite frosting is, if cakes should be flavored or just the frosting, and what new frostings we should try!

Now, down to the meat of it. Starting a business is a daunting task. There are already millions of businesses out there and the big guys are looking to crush the seeds of entrepreneurship before they get the first lick of sunshine. Cakeybake was just an idea about eight months ago. A lot of brainstorming and ideas have gotten passed back and forth since then.

Sometime soon in the future (I hope), Cakeybake will launch as a full fledged online bakery. However, in order to establish clientele, one needs to get out there and market, advertise, flaunt their stuff!
