WE ARE ‘POP UP’ BAKING THIS FRIDAY….THREE Cupcake Flavors AND A Drop Chewy Sugar Cookie,-Want to know the secret ingredient for THREE of our Menu Items? #Buttermilk 😋SCROLL DOWN for information!>>>>>
We’ll be baking 2-4 Times a MONTH,- not a WEEK…WE’D LOVE to get you on our baking schedule for 2019-2020 TODAY👐… (We’ll post closure dates by this weekend for sure…)
HappY, HappY Back To School To YOU ALL🍎! As we mentioned in our last BLOG (4.5 weeks ago,-yikes, so sorry),-We are seeking a NEW ADVENTURE and have been praying for this for honestly OVER a year. IN SHORT, we are changing the ‘business model’ to EVENT, HOLIDAY and POP UP Baking ONLY. In the last several years, we have baked from about 2-4 times a week equaling @20 hours a week, as I balanced two other small side jobs. Holidays, of course, were always different, more like 40-60 hours a week. But anyhow, we are now ONLY baking 2-4 times a month. WHY you ask? For many reasons but for sure…I lost my mom in May and I turned fifty in July…I finally realized that I cannot stand and bake for 8-12 hour shifts anymore and,- that life is too short to keep missing my kiddos weekend activities… While I LOVE to bake, it’s physically exhausting. Also, and more importantly, our kids are rounding out their PRE-college academic careers… we have a Junior in HS, an 8th Grader and a 6th Grader,- that means my husband and I are 2, 5 and 7 years away from the firsts and lasts pre-college years for these three! WE want them to see us running alongside them with our pom-poms, water bottles and maybe even rulers to make sure they’re studying for those upcoming SAT’s😂. We have two actors and singers (Church and Junior High productions), two school choir kids, a competitive dancer, competitive Rubik cuber, a HS football player, church youth group-ers and also spend heaps of time at skate parks with two skateboarders, MOST of these events are on the WEEKENDS, so we need to continue to clear them😬. It’s a long time saying around here that when everyone else is winding down their weeks and ‘clocking out’, I’m ‘clocking in’… We especially want our introverted Football dude (two years from college) to FEEL and know our hearts for him,-Dad attends every game and now I get to! I even took a WEABC volunteer position JUST to be in his ‘line of sight’ …I literally PRAY he feels my presence at his JV games and as I’m serving at Varsity ones… We can’t wait to see what God will do his final two years of High School! The Lord has provided a very dear, exciting and blessed new job for me where I work three days a week, 24 hours a week… So I will be joyfully and sadly cutting my baking hours to have a better work-home-serve life balance.
So what does ‘Event, Holiday and Pop Up only’ concierge baking MEAN to YOU? First, minimums have changed (2 Dozen Full or 48 Minis-Cupcakes,-you can still order two flavors). Kathy (baking assistant extraordinaire) and I need to block workdays and work hours productively as FAR in advance as possible. Wednesday and Friday DAY will be GREAT baking days for us by the way… Second, IF you need us, especially EVENTS, PLEASE get on our baking schedules ASAP. We will obviously have to give more ‘no’s’ than in the past. Please forgive us and PLEASE BOOK EARLY, BOOK NOW. The ‘No’s’ are going to be so tough for us but we literally cannot be in two places at once. And there will be weeks we don’t bake at all. The good news is that while we may bake LESS days monthly, we will be able to always have more flavors for you to choose from. PLEASE DON’T let this new ‘business model’ deter you from ordering via the online order form, we welcome the possible opportunity. Third, we may take LONGER to communicate with you, instead of 24 hours or less,- it may be 24-48 (72 if over a weekend). But remember, you’ll be booking weeks and weeks in advance😘,- so we should be good. Fourth, -Weekly Baking or BLOGGING will happen LESS, may be just twice a month as we get booked and schedule 10-14 days out and determine what will fit our schedules, etc. Also, our blogging will NOT be on a certain day of the week so please,- IF you haven’t already,- sign up for EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS! They come straight to your inbox once I publish! AND Lastly, Don’t Forget, -there are NO Minimums (except 12 minis due to box sizes) on ‘weekly baking’ once blogged. You can follow us on our Facebook Page and sign up for ’email notifications’ (Far right bar) to find out when we’re baking!
In closing, we cannot say ‘Thank You’ enough for ALL the YEARS (We slowly began November of 2011, so going on Year 8!) of baking you have blessed us with….AND we’re not done! Maybe, we’ll even see you this Friday?! If you have any questions, please, please don’t hesitate to email me,… Melissa@ConfectionPerfectionByMelissa.com.
