A Little Insight

downloadThis is a bit lengthy, but please read so you will understand our upcoming changes😚

A lot of our customers have asked me why we have chosen to close the storefront and switch to a order only “Cake Studio”? There are two main reasons that I am happy to share.

~The first being that after looking closely at our finances we have determined that 90% of our business comes from orders. The volume of walk-in clientele simply doesn’t cover the cost to operate a storefront. I have tried to keep it going for the customers who like to come in and get a cupcake here or there, but at this point it is not in our best interest to keep doing so.
~Secondly, many of you who know me personally know that I suffer from to RA. With many, many hours being put in to run the bakery I fear that if I don’t cut back I won’t be able to continue making your beautiful cakes and yummy cupcakes long term. So I’m opting to make fewer treats and hopefully fitting in more cakes while cutting back on hours and stress. Cakes are my passion and I truly hope to continue to grow this area of my business.

I know I have a lot of disappointed customers right now, please know that we are NOT going out of business, just doing business a bit differently.
