Am I Back? You Decide!

12 Feb

In the spring of 2012 everything was going swimmingly with my vegan cupcakes business in Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan. I had a solid client base that was keeping me hopping with orders and I was generating a pretty pleasing income for a work-at-home mom. Then, June came. While on our very first Disney vacation, my husband accepted a new job in Calgary, our house was sold within a week of getting home, we bought a house in southwest Calgary with a possession date over a month away, and we became homeless.

Okay, so we weren’t homeless, but Jason crashed in his brother’s basement for his first month at his new job and the kids and I stayed at my parents’ place. It kind of felt like being a university student, except for the having kids part. What happened next? My oldest went to kindergarten and turned my whole schedule upside down. It’s now six months later and I am starting to feel like I’ve caught my breath. What better way to negate that feeling than by setting up shop? Cupcake shop.

We’ve got family here and we’ve been making friends, and the more I get chatting it up with you folks, the more I begin to think that my cupcakes have a place in Cougar Ridge. Vegan cupcakes might not even be on your radar, but let me tell you, these babies are darn good. So whether you’re affected by an allergy to dairy and/or eggs, a friend to animals, or just trying to be a little bit warmer and fuzzier with your food choices, my cupcakes will hit the spot. They are baked in a kitchen that is completely devoid of peanut and nut products with a lot of T.L.C. You will literally taste the love.

So, family and friends, I am ready to take your orders. Check out the “Menu,” “Pricing” and “Order Here” sections of this website for details. I know that the subject of delivery is going to come up. Unless you are in the Cougar Ridge vicinity, I won’t be delivering. I’ve got too much on the go with my little brood. They are numero-uno to me and get to call all the shots. As such, I will bake, but you must make the drive. This way, I can find balance between baking and all the important stuff I don’t want to rush through in my life. In exchange for understanding, you will never be disappointed with your cakes. So am I back? Tentatively, yes! Let’s see if you guys can keep me busy!
