Far too long

It's been over a month since my last post. I'd like to say time flies when you're having fun, but moving 4 people into 3 different directions is anything but fun! My husband and I have moved into a new phase of our lives......we now have an empty nest. The transition has been easy because all three of our kids live in the area, but we're excited to be able to focus on the business more and have time to ourselves.

So now that I've explained my absence, let me catch you up on what HAS been happening with The Cake Pop Company. I am working on a new line of Cake Pops. I don't want to let too much out of the bag, because we're working up a big release and a whole campaign for the new products. For years I worked in an office setting and didn't have the chance to be creative, so this is so exciting for me to actually create new flavors and designs. I'm anxious to share them with you, but all in good time.

Earlier in August we received an order from Toulouse Gourmet in New Orleans. They needed 450 Cake Pops for the HBO Premier of the new Spike Lee Documentary called "If God is willing and Da Creek Don't Rise." Of course we jumped at the chance to be apart of this film premier. My husband and I have a special connection to New Orleans, because we spent our honeymoon and our 1st Anniversary there. We decided that with the heat it would be best for us to drive the order down to NOLA ourselves. My sister-in-law lived there for many years and hadn't been back since Katrina, so the three of us set out with Cake Pops in tow, south bound to New Orleans. We delivered the beautiful Cake Pops to Toulouse Gourmet the morning after we arrived there and met Russ and some of his staff. They were so nice and so great to work with. I look forward to working with them on some of their other events. After delivering the Cake Pops, we were then able to spend the next three days reacquainting ourselves with the fascinating and amazing city of New Orleans. The shops! The sights! The Riverwalk! Bourbon Street! The FOOD!!!! We basically ate our way through the city. It was the most amazing food and desserts that we had ever eaten. I can't wait to get back down there. Don't you just love the old world charm in the photos below? I miss it already. I know that we won't wait another 25 years to visit there!
As if moving and a trip to New Orleans didn't keep me busy enough, we threw in a local Bridal Expo. We made 1,200 sample size Cake Pops to give out to local brides, mothers of the brides, best friends, etc. It was amazing to see people get so excited about our Cake Pops. We literally had people coming to our booth, telling us that someone had told them that they HAD to come try our Cake Pops! Cake Pops caused quite a buzz! We even recognized a few customers and Facebook fans. Thank you to everyone that stopped by.

I promise that I will try to do better about posting new blogs on a semi-regular basis. August was such a whirlwind of a month, but then again.....Christmas is coming! (Yikes!)
