Let's catch up!

After all of these years…
So here we are, a few years and dozens (hundreds?) of deliveries later! I’m still your friendly neighborhood Delivery Boy, but I don’t have the chance very often to reach out and connect. I want to try to get back into the habit…
What’s new? Well, let me count the ways. Stella and Penny, the chiefs of this particular operation, now wear proudly the title of Cake Wars Champions. In July 2016 they took part in Season 3, Episode 6 of Food Network’s “Cake Wars” program, and brought home the big prize. Then in February of 2017 they took on the best of the best on Cake Wars – Champions, and while they didn’t get the big money that time, it was a tight competition and they did their usual great work!
Closer to home, the Boutique continues to grow, both in space and in products. The latest addition to the “You Absolutely Can’t Resist” menu is the new Scrumptious Bark, in a variety of flavors. I’m not going to name my favorite, although I have one; what will happen if I do? The Cake Lady will limit me to that one flavor (“Nope—no coconut for you; you said you only like the pretzel!” or something like that!). So I’m not taking the risk.
SugarBUZZ, the Cake Boutique’s cake and candy making supply shop, is adding new items all the time. Chocolate, sprinkles, candy molds, fondant, you name it—the ladies can get it. And all of the packaging that the Boutique uses for cakes and related products can be purchased in quantity at SugarBuzz!
So what about the life of the Delivery Boy?
Well, I spend my Saturdays (and most Sundays these days) working the delivery circuit, same as it ever was. After all this time, though, I finally got a new van! So the cake for your special event can arrive in style and comfort… just like it always did… but maybe a little more style and a little more comfort. On the other hand, we certainly never deny any customer a special request, so if you have a nostalgic bent and want your cake delivered in the original van, please don’t hesitate to ask. It’s a special order item we’re calling the “Classic Delivery Option,” available to you at the same cost as the new “Modern Delivery Option”! Of course, regardless of which of these two custom delivery choices you select, I promise to make sure to safely deliver your memory!
That’s it for now. Let’s get together in this space a little more often, if I can get the blogging part of my brain working regularly again. Watch for some really big announcements in the cake world, coming up soon!
