I technically opened in November, but not at a decent location (location truly is everything). A great street-front spot opened up on Main St, and I grabbed it! I am a supply shop and also teach classes, but the new place has a commercial kitchen that is almost up-and-running, so I will be able to add more stuff...custom cakes maybe but I am thinking more cookies and cupcakes. (And BTW, I have come a looooong way since I have posted cake pics on here...LOL!) I am also looking to rent it out to help with the income. I am IN LOVE with my shop...EVERYONE comments on it and it seems to be a hit in the community! My kid's classes are popular, and so are the birthday parties! Yay me!

Congrats on your shop!!! I know you're excited! What a great idea to give kid classes. We don't have anything like that here. I may steal your idea if I ever get a shop of my own. Definately post pics when you get them!

I knew it was Placerville! I have family there. It's where I was married. I wish I was there, ( I'm down in the bay area) I would definitely rent from you. It's such a cute little town. Now I am definitely jealous. I'll have to drop in and see your little shop next time I'm up. I'm so happy for you.

How exciting!
Congratulations on your new shop. It really is adorable. I love the bright and fun colors. It has a wonderful old-fashioned charm that is very inviting.
I can see why you are so proud of it, and loving every minute. icon_biggrin.gif

I am looking forward to the indoor photos. It's such fun to see someone's dreams become tangible.

What a great storefront. Congratulations!! I am so envious of your location. I am from NOCAL and miss it very much. I went to Apple Hill every November for as long as I could remember. We always went to Rainbow Orchard and spent the day listening to bluegrass and eating fried chicken and apple pie. I have such great memories of that area. ENJOY, ENJOY!!

Lisa,
Congratulations. What a cute shop, I agree with everyone else, it's so cute and welcoming. I'm in Roseville, too far away to rent from you icon_sad.gif But close enough to come check it out! I'll have to look up your hours. I have been trying to find a kitchen around here...no luck so far.
