It is a good thing we took our vacation at the end of February, because I don’t think I’ve stopped running around since we are back. March was a busy month and April is showing signs of the same. While it is completely exhausting, and I would love a day off for a haircut and some fun Spring shopping, there is definitely a natural high that I get from being busy.
You already know about some of our trip, the BlogHer lunch at the Sunburnt Calf, and Keep It Sweet Desserts’ first birthday, here is what else I’ve been up to…
Last weekend I met up with some bloggers for a day of NYC fun, of course I had to bring samples to share.
I’ve already spent some time with Joanne and Tara (both of whom I adore). It was wonderful to get to finally meet Erin who was in town for just a few hours, as well as Jen and Kayle who live in the area. Tara has a great photo of all of us after brunch. Sadly missing was Tracey who had the worst luck ever with car trouble that morning.
Work-wise, I’ve been occupied with Easter and Passover orders (don’t worry, Matzo Crack is still available!), but I’ve also been busy making cake pops for some Anthropologie events. I love working with a brand that I love to shop.
I’ve also been working on improving my packaging over the last few months to make it just a bit more special. It is a work in progress but I’m really excited about this new “cookie” insert!
Remember when I mentioned that March is full of family birthdays? The last one was for my Mom on the 29th. We celebrated yesterday with her favorite food, cake. Finding a dessert for my dad was challenging, but I know with my mom it is all about the icing! I put together 3 layers of chocolate pound cake (baked in 6, 8 and 10-inch round cake pans), filled the layers with this chocolate buttercream, and covered everything with this vanilla buttercream. Right now I’m just regretting that I didn’t bring home any leftovers!
Oh, and in other fun news, keep your eyes open for some Keep It Sweet Desserts giveaways over the next couple of months! Audra hosted one last week and Carrie will have one this week!
And finally, I have some exciting news that I will be sharing…… in a few days. Follow me on Facebook or Twitter for the latest!!
