Looking back, and looking forward

Two years ago today, I officially turned our sign from Closed to Open for the first time. It is an exhilarating feeling to see all of your hard work pay off. Now, there wasn't a rush of customers waiting in line, but we did have the phone starting ringing right away and it seems as though it hasn't stopped since.

Opening our little cake shop took almost 2 years of researching, planning, purchasing and building just to get to flip that sign. We laughed, cried, were laughed at by banks, and told by others that this was a horrible time to open a business, let alone one in the food service industry. However, we knew that the south side of Indy was just dying for a great cake shop to call their own. And we were right. In the past two years, we've helped countless brides, parents, friends, and family members make someones special day a little more yummy. We've made pirate ships, princess castles, tie-dyed disco themed towers, buildings, planes, armadillos and even a bedpan!!! Our customers have given us the opportunity to do so many fun and unique designs that not only challenge us, but keep us busy too.

We are extremely grateful to have been given this opportunity to do something we love and help make someones day just a little bit brighter. We look forward to all of the great new cakes to come and the amazing new opportunities.
