Hello everyone! My apologies for a few days absence. I've been working on something very special.
The news I've been bottling up for the past couple of months is that I'm shutting down my wedding cake business to help open a new bakery here in Nashville. I can't reveal a lot of details about it yet...but will be updating you as soon as I am allowed!
This has come at such an opportune time for me. I love baking and putting together confections, but I have discovered that I hate, hate, HATE owning a business. Yuck. Some people...that is just their cup of tea, but not me. I am way too prone to anxiety for that. I'd like to be a part of something, rather than in charge of something. So this is all really an answer to prayers, and very exciting!
So The Cake Parlour will be no more. And, in all this, somehow it feels beyond appropriate to shut down this blog as well and start fresh. This is technically a business blog...and I've always been really careful about what I post because of that. Well, I welcome the opportunity to open up a little more on my new blog.
Also, I've become increasingly passionate about natural foods during the past several months, and want to share the wholesome, seasonal, naturally-sweetened and leavened desserts I've been creating with you.
So, thank you so very much, all the readers that come here, and especially to the ones I've become friends with in real life. Come visit me now at Maple Sugar!
