I really like when people give me the opportunity to be creative and have few requests. This order for birthday cupcakes were simple. A variety of our cupcakes, with vanilla butter cream, decorated in any way for an adult. I have really been excited about spring-esque pastries lately, and especially the idea of cupcakes looking like a bouquet of flowers. What's better than flowers, that you can eat!!?
I hope the birthday girl loves them. I know I have mentioned before, one of my favorite things about being a pastry chef is that I get to be a silent partner in the celebration of someone's special day. It also puts a lot of pressure on my shoulders, because if it isn't what the customer expects or wants, I feel like I've ruined a really special day. Wedding cakes are really scary, because I know how important they are. I have, thankfully, had nothing but good experiences with weddings though. Let's keep it that way!
Anyways, today was brutal. My feet and legs hurt so bad after work, but I still took Charlie on a really long beach walk while Doug went skating. Now I'm exhausted.
Also, excited about my friend-sushi-date tomorrow with Ainsley, who's birthday is coming up. If you don't already read her blog, you should head on over there and say hello.
That's all for now. I am going to help Doug pack for his trip, and then go to sleep, before I pass out in front of the TV.
