sweet marketing ideas

It's like your momma always said, "The way to a man's heart is through his stomach". Who'da thunk the same principal would apply professionally as well? These mini cupcakes were ordered not only as a marketing tool, but also to gain access to the people who make decisions. Recent studies show that decision makers love cupcakes. lmao. I wish.

WARNING, this post features edible undergarments...but not that kind....oh man.

When I was asked by a friend to do a cake for a bachelorette party, I'll be honest, I got a little nervous. This is a family blog! No worries, they didn't want anything too scandalous.

Graduation Marathon 2011

We had a graduation marathon this year! Marathon? Yes! Two of my siblings graduated on the same day in different cities....HOURS apart. Both of them graduating on the same day caused a little hang up on what design the cake should be. I went back and forth trying to decide if I should do each mascot, something symbolizing each area of study, or one big cake that captured something about each of them. I finally decided to go for something more generic "graduation day". We were going to be driving all over South Louisiana as it was, the last thing I needed was extra stress of super complicated cakes to tote along.

Graduations always bring back fun memories of former classes and classmates. And naturally, I pulled out college and high school yearbooks and had a few laughs. And then it hit me! All the notes in said yearbooks were the best part. "Have a great life" and the more personal full page notes in bright pink ink from the BFF were the epitome of graduation. What if you could do that same thing with a cake? YOU CAN, all thanks to food color markers. :)
