So the beauty of a small town is that well it's small, which makes advertising easier, and the news stereotypically pretty slow. Which can lead to amazing opportunities like this!

Totally beyond belief, but there it is folks. Thanks a million and one to Toshi, the greatest guy ever.

congrats!!! That's what every baker wants written about them. Kudos to you for doing such a great job. I'm from a small town too and would be beyond proud for that to ever happen to me.

Awesome! Congratulations, yep, small towns can rock. I'd frame it too and hang it up, and have a link on my website (lol, if I had a website). Neat story about the bagicon_smile.gif

Hey Brook! We just moved to Clarksville, TN. My hubby is with the Rakkasans at Ft. Campbell, KY.

My daughter and I were looking at your website. We loved how you said your prices are what they are because of the fact that you do custom cakes. I wish more of the public would understand that selling a custom cake at grocery (or commissary) stores just cannot be done. I also liked how you broke down how you priced your cakes (to include letting them know that you DO have to pay yourself for labor).

Your cakes are great! Best of luck to you. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Thanks bunches, I blame those stupid tv shows. When they deliver those amazing cakes I wish they would do a price at the bottom! Those ace of cakes cost a minimum, MINIMUM, of $1000, I can't believe people balk at 60 bucks here

I forgot to ask, why are sheet cakes not allowed where you are? Is that rule just for home bakers or for grocery stores too?

There is a company called AAFES, they have first claim to all business, NO one is allowed to produce a product that they already provide.

Your write up is VERY excititng! I looked @ your website too. I love your FAQ page. You explain everything very thoroughly without being over the top.
