We have been quite busy here at YOCG. It's not just the office work but all the trips out to do stories on the business's of interest. Last week we ventured into a store that neither Oma nor Poison had been in previously. Which confidentially was quite obvious from their lack of decorum when it came to shouting from various parts of the store, "oh you gotta see this, and come and see this one". Quite frankly I was a little embarrassed and so I left the "geese who seemed to be finding a brand new day" at every corner and introduced myself to the manager of "The Specialty Shop".
This establishment has been in business for over 20 years and services the community with all manner of cake, cookie and other yummy treat paraphanalia. They also do fabulous cakes for all occasions and offer classes to those with an interest.
Pat, the manager, offered to show me just a few of the hundreds of tips for decorating cakes, while the "girls" were off shopping and buying and shopping some more. Poison bought a darling pirate inspired cake topper, blue spray color and some piratical rings for Ry's cake (which he wasn't really keen on but no accounting for taste). Oma on the other hand was once again distracted by all things sparkly and shiny. Honestly the woman is like a crow....if it sparkles she's all over it.
Anyway, we came back to the office with a lot of new things to do things with......or something. And Poison will begin her beginning cake decorating class in June. GK will also be doing a cake baking camp for a week in June and I'm gonna be first in line to sample the bring homes. Now that little girl can bake.
So until I regale you with our very sexy trip to the nursery. Whew, fan needed for this one, be good to all the wooden heads you know. For all you know they might be someone's crone.
Ta, Ms. Baggs
