Life is certainly getting exciting here in Cake World. I took a nice long Thanksgiving vacation with my family, and this week have been a busy bee trying to get the ball rolling on the new space. I bought a shiny new oven (don’t worry, the Frigidaire Flair will proudly be on display in the cake shop, in its new incarnation as a coffee fixins station) which should be installed tomorrow or Friday. Saturday, from noon to 6pm, I’ll have a little pre-opening open house, for folks to stop by and check out the cake-shop-in-progress. We’ll be handing out mini cupcakes, coupons, and coffee samples from 1000faces, in Athens, Ga. And then, City-of-Asheville willin’, I will be open for special order production (by appointment only) the first of next week. December and into January we will be preparing the retail part of the shop, and sometime in January you can expect a cake party to celebrate the launching of our new menu and cafe hours.
Also, Mountain Xpress did a nice little write-up about the Cake Shop. Thanks, y’all!
Since I haven’t been baking very much, I’ll post a picture of Jasper on Thanksgiving vacation:
