Hey hey! It's been far too long, but these past couple of months have been a blast and jam packed. I've done some sweet cakes that I seriously enjoyed working on and things at Rogue are taking off! No complaints here, only positive vibes and hard work.
To start off, I want to go over some of my favorite recent creations. A cake that immediately comes to mind is something that I felt really confident and excited about. One of my closest friends and the exec chef at Rogue has the coolest nephew, who actually wanted a Star Wars themed cake for his 6th birthday. I actually wish I was that cool when I was six...? Annnnnyways, his mom sent me over his favorite design, and I got to bring the cake to life for him. Along with his badass theme, he wanted a vanilla cake with chocolate chips, filled with chocolate buttercream. YUM.
Another order that I really enjoyed was for another cool little dude. Jacqueline got in touch with me about her son's lumberjack themed birthday party. I was stoked on the theme, obviousy- flannels, woods, everything I love. I couldn't wait to begin, and I'm super proud of how it all came out. I fell in love with the chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream, and her choice of a "naked" vanilla cake. I had to add a photo that she took of the setup (@jacquelinesarahh on instagram- check her out! Seriously, her posts are great) because she captured it perfectly! Thanks, lady!
I added some other creations from the past couple of months into the photos, just some that I really enjoyed as well! YAAAAS CAKE. AND DONUTS. AND EVERYTHING YUMMY.
One other order that sticks out in my mind was for one of the badass chicks from Rogue. If you've ever been into our awesome bar, you've probably met Sam, and you've probably instantly clicked. She's sassy and funny as hell- not to mention a kickass bartender. She'll mix you the tastiest drink- trust me. Sam turned 30 in February and decided to celebrate with a photoshoot. She asked me to make her a smash cake for it. YES, I love it! Her friend Kerin Curry, a local photographer, ran the shoot and absolutely killed it. All of the photo credits go to her for this one. Sam gave me free range over design and only told me her colors and some designs that she was a fan of. I love when clients do this, I feel really trusted and I get to have fun. Not to say that I don't have fun on every single cake I make, but I love surprising people with something they don't expect or can't envision. The reaction is priceless.
Photos by Kerin are posted here for you to check out! She's out of Cumberland, RI and obviously one talented lady! (@KerinCurryPhotography on FB and Instagram!)
With so many fun things to look back on, it makes me way more excited for whats to come! My next month is packed with new orders and I couldn't be happier about it. I have met so many amazing people and am insanely grateful for the unwavering support from everyone around me. I can't thank my friends and family enough, because I would definitely not be here without them.
Also looking forward to hopefully meeting more of you and working on some crazy cool stuff. Let's get to it and have some fun.
My next blog post will be coming soon for sure. I just traveled to Baltimore with some of my Rogue fam for a few days of endless food, beer, and laughs. I can't wait to write about it and share my experience in such a cool place with some of the best people.
And stay sweet.
