Now that I got your attention, :P I am moving. As many of you know, my husband is military and we have orders that will relocate us in January of 2019. So many questions, I know!! Me too! haha And being a military spouse I can almost guarantee that none of my questions will get answered and if they do, they are subject to change....because, military. :D The least I can do is answer your questions. SOOOOO, what does that mean for my bakery and you? Well, it means that I am officially in my transition phase.
I have always known that my bakery here was temporary because I have never wanted a full brick and mortar shop. So as the year comes to an end (NOT JUST YET) I will officially be "metaphorically" closing my doors to the bakery. BUT that doesn't mean the end of Sugar Cream and Peonies!! I have had a plan in place for some time now and it is divine timing (I'm sure) as I make my transition over to putting my (soon to be) full attention on what I really want to do here and for that I am so excited!!
I will be starting full on recipe development and my blog will soon be the star of the show here! This does mean that the website will start to change later in the year too. I will be bringing you delicious designer pastries and cakes that I'm known for, along with all the knowledge you need to make them yourself! I will be your one stop shop for real and honest recipes, tips, and all the how-to's from the pros! A cookbook is a goal in the semi-far future but for now, it will be lots of blog posts and the start of my you tube channel. I have always said that I am my brand and I plan to fully deliver on that promise. Everything I have made for all of you, you will now know how to make it yourself and I know (seriously KNOW) that you can! Especially with me being you sugar fairy god mother ;) We got all the magic we need!
NOW: I AM STILL TAKING ORDERS right now. My orders are limited but I'm still here so just reach out. I will try to accommodate as much as I can! I seriously love all of you and while this is exciting for me, it's a little bittersweet. I have loved and am just endlessly honored to be a part of your life events over the past year and half! All your kids birthday parties, promotion parties, mothers day, Christmas, valentines day, and so much more have meant the world to me! I know it's not just a cake, It's a moment and I want to sincerely thank you all for trusting me to deliver on this. There are no words that can express my gratitude, honestly!
ONE last surprise though!! And it's the best one yet! I will be hosting workshops throughout the country too! And of course my very first one will be right here in the Jacksonville NC area!! AHHHH! The plan is for this fall and I will be teaching you the popular (and one of my faves) drip cake! You will buy your gorgeous self a ticket to show up, learn how to stack, ice, and chocolate drip and decorate your cake that of course will get to take home with you! A gift bag of some tools will be included that you get to take home, along with a pretty little packet of recipes and directions. Oh, and ummmm wine and mimosas...cause I mean why the heck not?! IF you know me, then you know I don't do anything small and you are guaranteed flowers, to feel like a goddess, some yummy sweets to snack on, a dreamy location, and some damn good company.....just sayin. SO, please stay tuned for all of the details as the year goes on because space will be limited unfortunately.
Thank you all again for everything and I am so ready for the remainder of this year! Feel free to ask me any questions you have!
LOVE LOVE LOVE all of you!
