Hello Cupcake friends,
Yes, it’s been three weeks since my last weekly baking blog…can I just tell you we were booked both full time service hours with our kiddos ‘end of school’ events and then we were booked full time work hours with scheduled baking. Our schedule was so tight, we couldn’t even blog what we were baking! Needless to say, we were honored to be a part of Wylie’s Chamber of Commerce Annual banquet, WISD’s final CLAAS celebration, a WISD District wide Dual Language celebration, several birthdays, corporate events and High School graduations (Congratulations WISD) AND we STILL have two weekends of High School graduation baking both this and next weekend, Congratulations GarlandISD and PlanoISD graduates! THANK YOU for allowing us to be a small part of your celebratory events! OH YES, SUMMER is really DIFFERENT around here so PLEASE let us know if you need us as EARLY as possible and PLEASE check SUMMER CLOSURES or Limitations. We already have several events scheduled but we do go down to PART-TIME hours. Basically, it’s more expensive to bake in the Summer as we heat up our home to run multiple ovens for hours on end and then have to counter that with hours of air conditioning! We’d LOVE to bake for you, but we will need notice. Lastly, we are ALWAYS honored, ALWAYS humbled by your orders. Please know that we don’t take even one for granted! Questions?

‘Business hours’ | Determined by our clients…
We’re often asked on Facebook to publish our ‘Business Hours’… This is ALMOST impossible except for Mondays when we publish our ‘weekly baking schedule’! Basically, we can work backwards a bit meaning, we’re open for Saturday pickups normally between 10-Noon (we can often have your order ready by 9:30 if needed). We’re CLOSED Saturday from ‘NOON on till Monday mornings 8am’ (for faith, fellowship and family). We’re almost always on the phone verifying that week’s orders each Monday morning from 8-Noon. Other than that, we are at the ‘beck and call’ of those clients that have booked us for that week via the online order form. Whoever has booked us (at least a week in advance or at the very least by Sunday midnight, is how we determine our weekly baking hours and pick up windows. We can book your ‘baking and pick up’ ANY day of the week (except for closures), ANY time of the day (except Saturday Noon till Monday morning 8am), with your online order! DO NOT fret however, you can always order off the existing weekly baking schedule posted on Mondays. In the end, YOU, the client, determines our weekly baking schedule, other than closures.
We’re humbled to bake for you and yours and ‘Thank You’ dearly for your online orders. Thank you ever so much for allowing us to bake for you, we promise to do our very best to make your experience and celebration memorable!
20 HOURS| This was MY Dream six years ago…to work 20 hours a week baking, what I love! Now, this of course does not include holidays, as that’s not realistic. Why 20 you ask? Because honestly, I work another part-time job. These two jobs combined have me clocking in full time hours while also being the executive assistant to FOUR humans and three of these (our kiddos) DON’T DRIVE. This includes all three children’s carpools, three different school campuses, as no one qualifies for school busing and almost all extra curricular activities. Yes, I have fabulous ‘carpool mom help’, but ‘Ay, Caramba, ‘Oh My’! Sometimes, I feel as if I actually see myself driving down the streets going the other way… As well, I REALLY love serving my children’s schools and our church. Over the years, I’ve allowed those 20 hours to look more like 25, 30, 35 and 40 hours on a non-holiday prep week or holiday week. God has done something BIG in me in the loss of my beloved best friend and mentor Nancy McDaniel, who passed away January 18th after a 15 month fight against cancer. My heart (who struggles deeply with disappointing others) and my head have met head on…I WILL stay on task and ONLY BAKE a maximum of 20 hours weekly. I’m going to try to not miss those precious family moments. Did I also mention we’ve decided to dip our toes into the world of dance conventions and competitions? It’s my girl’s heart desire and I’ve finally realized it (after a few years) when I saw her literally dancing in her sleep… Life is too short and as I’ve learned recently via Nancy, aka our ‘CeCe’, that we are not guaranteed tomorrow. Now remember, I’m still working full time and I absolutely know I’ll work crazy hours during the holidays. However, once I’m booked a certain number of baking days weekly, I will close the others. My body AGE (gulp), mind and soul will no longer allow me to work into the wee hours of the morning or pull all nighters, yes, -my ‘ah ha’ moment. I’ve ALWAYS striven to be a concierge batch baker operating above and beyond the legal requirements of the Texas Food Cottage Law in a pet free, smoke free environment who values quality ingredients and crazy freshness… and I sure hope to continue! <3
NOW, more than ever, will we appreciate your ONLINE ordering in advance. It will be SUPER duper hard to stick to those 20 Baking hours, but we’ll be praying and trusting GOD to provide for both your and our needs! Please know that with notice (1-2 weeks preferably), I will do everything I can to get you on the baking schedule and look forward to baking for the BEST and kindest customers I could ever have hoped, prayed and dreamed of year’s ago! Seriously, YOU are…
How do you get on the baking schedule you ask? The ONLINE order form please! Did you know there there are TEN different ways customers can communicate with me via normal email, phone, text and social media? That online order form holds me accountable like nothing else! And, it has all that you ask of me in writing, fabulous! Lastly, our current ‘limited baking’ or ‘closures’ are ALWAYS posted on our weekly baking blog and above the online order form!♥ – Melissa Stone
