Another big win—and "the show must go on..."
Posted on Dec 13, 2010
The Delivery Boy has been pretty quiet of late. It seems that there are fewer deliveries at this time of the year, and therefore somewhat less to talk about. Not to mention the fact that I've been backed up by one of the dedicated staff of The Cake Boutique so I could have some much needed time off!
This morning I was driving to my day job in the Boutique's delivery vehicle (see a future post related to this marvel of automotive technology) and the snow and ice was really challenging to me. I was reminded of a day last year, before there was even a bricks-and-mortar location for the world's greatest cake shop (go ahead--prove me wrong!), when the Cake Ladies were working at the Eastwood Mall Expo Center bridal show. On that day, all of the faux cakes were loaded up, all of the sheets were baked (mmmm, Orange Chocolate Chunk...), and a huge snowstorm was moving in. It got so bad that Saturday that the mall actually closed early. They made up for it on Sunday, though, dashing through the snow to meet with more happy couples than at any other point in the Boutique's history.
There's a similar storm coming in today and tomorrow, right in the middle of Christmas Cookie Season. The orders are flying in, and the team is mobilizing to make sure we keep the cookies flying out. Fear not--the weather will not slow them down! All of the orders will be ready to go on time, and your party will be well supplied. And of course, if you requested delivery, I and my trusty steed shall not let you down. After all, as we proved last January, the "show" must go on!
Oh, and one more thing...
This past Saturday, the local Harley Davidson dealership in Warren had a fund-raiser for Toys for Tots, and local businesses were encouraged to enter their cookies in a competition. You'll never guess whose Maple Nut Twist cookies won the best-tasting award among all of these local businesses! Three cheers for the Cake Ladies--I'm going to have to start calling them The Cookie Ladies, too!
