A Dream Come True!

I'm so excited I'm not sure how to begin this post! So... bear with me! Most of you know I've been wanting to take my hobby to the next level. Unfortunately converting my passion to a home based business is very complex, involves daily paperwork, follow ups, and lots of stuff that isn't any fun!

So... I've been casually looking for a cake shop that would hire me to work with them while at the same time keeping my flexibility and availability to my children. God knew exactly what I needed and I could have never even asked Him to give me the situation He has delivered. It's amazing how He knows what we need better than we do and how he can orchestrate things to work out better than we could have ever dreamed possible! So this post is about a new partnership. It's a match made in Heaven! LITERALLY!

On Saturday I received an official offer from Kerry & Roseann Burns at The Town Crier Bakery in Peddler's Village. My role will be to help with the more detailed cakes that involve fondant, gum paste, and some of the more time consuming techniques. In other words... the stuff I'm good at that you can see on my blog!

I'll work with them on a part time basis and pick up extra hours as cake projects dictate. My boys will get to hang with one of my dearest friends and her children whom they absolutely LOVE while I'm at work.
What does this mean for my friends and family who want to get cakes from me? You still can! In fact, I'll now be better equipped to make the cake of your dreams as I've been given access to a bakery full of supplies and knowledge!

If your cake project is too big for my kitchen, your friend wants a cake (and I don't know them), you need more than I can do, you want a cake tasting, or anything else that's out of the norm of a simple cake, I can STILL decorate your cake.

The difference is, you'll put your order through the Town Crier, tell them that Stacey Hill referred you and I will get a finders fee for sending them your business and I'll get to decorate your cake. The benefit to you is that I won't have to turn anyone down, you can get more flavors, sizes, and tastings! And a very competitive price! You'll want to speak with Roseann Burns. You'll like her, I promise!

Thanks for all your prayers and support. Stay tuned for more cake photos as I'll keep on updating!

Oh! And don't forget to visit the bakery!

Stacey, this is so exciting! I would love to be able to do this for a local bakery, but unfortunately we don't have a privately owned one, only grocery stores here. Congrats and good luck. I still hope we get to see your awesome work!
