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.

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

What an adorable shop! How exciting! My husband just took me on a little tour of cupcake shops today (in Toronto Canada) and it was so exciting to see those shops! Wishing you much success!

summernoelle Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 3:48am

Cutest. Place. Ever! I love it! We all dream of a shop like this one. Congratulations and best of luck!

Ladyfish74 Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 3:49am

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!!

cherryz Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 7:42am

YAY you Lisa! You are blessed... I'm just a beginner...God willing I dream of having one myself.. Do continue sharing your moments -

allibopp5 Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 3:54pm

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.

beck30 Posted 16 Mar 2009 , 6:13pm

This is such a cute shop! I too want to teach kids classes one of these days after I grow out of my home and venture into a nice cake shop. Congrads!!!!!
