I received a very nice resume and email this weekend asking about opportunities at Cake on Sunday.

Well, I have a dishwasher position and a fondant-maker/colorer position open. And your pay is, ohhhh… nothing. Except extra cake sometimes.

Let’s just say this lady was way over-qualified. Maybe someday I can hire some talent like her, but for now, the one-man band continues on.

10 year reunion tonight.

I can not believe it’s been 10 years. Feeling old. Until I talk to someone at my work and they tell me about their 25 year reunion.

A beautiful three-tiered graduation cake modeled after a fake cake I’ve made in the past for a styled shoot.

Hand-painted, edible lace…and pretty!

THIS DOG’S FINAL DAY PROVES WE SHOULD LIVE EVERY DAY LIKE IT’S OUR LAST

The Roberts family knew they had to put their beloved dog, Duke, to sleep after the cancer began to take over his body. So, they decided to make his final day on Earth his most special.

See more photos from Duke’s last day that will bring you to tears here.

I’m not blubbering like a baby or anything right now

That pile of cheeseburgers. Ahhh this is so sweet. And so sad. Dogs are the best.

One of my favorite things about cakes has become the flowers I get to surround myself with.

Oh, yeah…I’ll…tell you something…

“I wanna bake your cupcakes,” just doesn’t have the same ring.

The Beatles are awesome. So are these cupcakes fit for a 60th Beatles Bash!

10 Ways You’re Making Your Life Harder Than It Has To Be

This is wonderful. I love them all. Especially #1. I’ve wanted to talk about this first one so many times… but I could never find the right words. This is perfect. As a Pisces (yeah, I’m going there), I’m sensitive but I also go with the flow. I’m not easily offended and I’m learning more each day that not everyone is a Pisces. At all.

Also…#6…I’ve been really trying to embrace this and just say yes. Take risks. I’m pretty risk-adverse. I’m a rule follower. For heaven’s sake, I still measure out 6 cups of water when I make macaroni because that’s how much the box tells me to use. And you dump all the water out when your macaroni is done. And I know this. And I still make sure I start with 6 cups. The next time I make macaroni…I’m totally not going to measure the water. Baby steps.

#7. Yes. “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

Beautiful.

Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.

Let’s hope this is true. Roughest weekend in Cake on Sunday history. If bad things happen in threes… I’m finally done. Oh, please say I’m done.

The same cupcake delivery I’ve been doing every week for 8 weeks always went flawlessly. Until the last scheduled delivery. Pedestrian needed to cross. I needed to stop. Two cupcake boxes needed to turn upside down. And then the place I was delivering too was closed.

Wedding cake disaster. I’ll skip the details as I try to move on from this sad day, but I will note that the bride still had a beautiful display of sweets.

Stood up at a cake tasting. Got up early, set up a beautiful tasting, and waited. And the party of four was a no-call, no-show. Oh gee, thanks.

A lot of stepping stones this weekend.

Moving on.
