Taking the Cake to WCNY!

While I'm not able to put a streaming video on the site, I am able to tell you what fun it was to have segment producer, Amy Manley, from WCNY here to talk cake and tape an interview. It aired last night on WCNY24 during the June 21st episode of Business Close Up. I know my whole family tuned in, and some friends and customers too, to get an outsider's inside look to what I do.

Amy, my hat is off to you! You pieced together a wonderful look at She Takes The Cake, and I thank you.

If you didn't catch the segment, you can check the programming schedule to see when it will air again on a different channel. Perhaps in the future WCNY will add streaming video to their site so you can catch up on all their great programming!

To Amy, Kathy and the rest of the crew...glad you liked the cake!

This birthday is in the bag!

So, today is my step-dad's birthday. I thought it would be fun to give him a perfectly fitting cake. We celebrated with his league night buddies at the little clubhouse at Apple Creek Country Club on Mariposa Road just outside of DeRuyter. A new course still in it's youth; nurtured by my family.

Me, I stick to cakes, but Ron, Danielle, and RJ along with all their dedicated staff and loyal volunteers and supporters have this course well on it's way to becoming a favorite for a challenging round or two. Check it out!

As for the usual it was up to par!

New sites are up!

Well, so much for a new start at keeping you freshly updated with our news! The new websites are up and running, showcasing more of our work and hopefully in an easier to navigate environment. You all know about I'm sure, but new to the Internet is Easily accessible from the cake site and from Erin's invite site, which is currently undergoing a remodel of it's own.

I've added some fresh new cake designs to the gallery for you, and I've limited the chatter to info I think you need to make that initial decision of whether or not I'm the type of designer you are looking for! As we begin to make our mark in local and national media, we'll add those elements too.

Speaking of which; keep an eye open for WCNY's Business Close Up; an interview with Jen to air hopefully June 21st at 9pm. I know I'll be watching!
