If you have ever had a cake consult with us, you know that we put our hearts into it. We look at pictures, discuss ideas and make suggestions. We spend hours to days just planning a cake! We want all of our customers, from babies to brides, to be happy!
Last week, I received a note from a past bride. The wedding was a year ago. Their cake was pictured in my first blog post. In the body of the letter it stated that they tried their top cake that they saved for their first anniversary. (Oh boy! We have all heard the horror stories about the brick in the freezer!) This is what she said:
We enjoyed the cake top today and it was delicious as it was 1 year ago!
Okay, so that made me misty eyed but that was not what sent me over the edge! The fact that they thought of us enough to send that sweet and touching card, was in itself enough to bring those tears but what else was included did me in. It was a birth announcement and picture of their newborn baby daughter. (Just typing this is very emotional for me!)
So, on those days I wonder why I am spending so many long hours and sleepless nights (as so many of us bakers do!) I think about all of the thank you cards, wonderful reviews and now this birth announcement from this beautiful family just starting out.
So, to the Schwartze family, thank you for those tears....of happiness.
