Business As Usual
I had lots of inquiries for cakes and cupcakes as early as November, this gave me the thought that Filipinos are really looking forward to Christmas season. I was extra happy that my son was now here at home to help me with all the baking tasks. Undeniably, my son is very good at designing, he has a great artistic skills and I can't help admiring him for that. Sometimes, our customers would request for this and that design for their cup cake toppers and it was not an easy job, I tell you. Creating these designs for fondant cup cakes is a very complicated process, and I would say...time consuming. You need to have a passion for what you do, otherwise you will give up. There are times, we sleep so late just to finish all the orders. At any rate, our consolation with what we do is when customers appreciated our efforts and compliment our designs and the taste of the cakes, of course. Here are some of the baked goodies we did for our beloved customers:
I really love to bake. If not for the long years I've spent in the corporate world, probably I should have started baking earlier. It was actually a dream come true for me. When you love what you do, no matter how difficult, time consuming or complicated it is, you will always have that energy to continue. That is because you are happy with what you are doing and that translates to the products you are producing. When I'm not busy with orders, I see to it that I would always have fresh cakes and baked goodies for my family and their friends, too. I am glad when I see them enjoying what I cook or bake. This gives me a sense of fulfillment as a Mom.
I hope I could continue doing things that I love for a longer period of time.
