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.
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!
