Meet the Cake Artist part 5

This next "Caker" is really a "Caker-in-Training". Please meet Caitlin:

Because of her school schedule, Caitlin helps out primarily on weekends. She often assists in the kitchen with Saturday pickups, and helps carry items for Saturday deliveries. She also is the one who cuts the cakes for our cake tastings on Sunday, as well as prepares the fillings. If there is any downtime between deliveries or appointments, she gets some hands on practice in the kitchen with some practice cakes. She is going to make a great cake artist someday. Until then, we are happy that this hard worker has decided she wanted to work with Indy Cakes.

Meet the Cake Artist Part 4

Today, I'd like to introduce you to Kathy, co-owner of Indy Cakes.

If you've placed an order or sent us an email, you've probably talked with Kathy. If you've stopped by the shop in the afternoon, you've probably talked with Kathy. If you've picked up a cake on Saturday, you've probably talked with Kathy!

Without her, our shop would probably grind to a halt. Not only does she handle the majority of our customer correspondence, but she also handles the office work, bills (we do need lights to decorate!) and other paperwork that keeps our shop going. Lastly, she also holds the closely guarded secret to what makes our buttercream so amazingly delicious.

Meet the Cake Artist Part 3

Today, I'd like you to meet Nicole.
Nicole came to us as an Intern with the Chef's Academy in need of a few more hours to complete her degree. After signing on, it was apparent that she fit in well with the rest of our team and our next decorated was hired!

Nicole started decorating cakes at the tender age of 8 while in 4-H. While in high school, Nicole decided that she wanted to make cakes for a living and applied (and was accepted) to the Chef's Academy in Indianapolis. She enjoys decorating birthday cakes for kids as they allow her to be cute and creative.
Here are just a few of the cakes that Nicole has helped create:

Our new delivery vehicle

A while back, we acquired a minivan for deliveries, but we wanted to make sure that everyone knew what we had on board and why we were driving so slowly. We contacted the guys over at 317 Signs and Wraps, and they made it happen. Check out the results:

Pretty cool, huh?
