Hey guys, I know I haven't been around much lately, but I just had to share with my cake friends! I was featured on the cover of the business section of the local paper yesterday! You can read the article here:

I have already had a pretty good response from the article, and I was excited about it - I wanted to share with people who would understand my excitement!

Thanks for everything I've learned from all of the people on this forum - you guys really are the best icon_smile.gif

Congrats!!!! I just left your website & I really enjoyed going through it, I hope to one day have a business such as yours putting out beautiful cakes. From what I saw there the publicity was well earned thumbs_up.gif

Congratulations! I was really surprised when I saw the article was in the CA. I read it online every day but I didn't see this. I'm really glad you posted! I come to Memphis every couple of weeks, I may stop by and say hi one day!
