I am at the height of wedding cake season! This year is special, because my right hand gal, my brains, my office manager and my friend Rachel is getting married this August. I don’t know what I would do without her keeping me in check and I hope Erik is good at sharing, because I saw her first. It is funny how people you might never have met are tossed by fate into our paths. How well do you know the people you work with or the cashier who always rings you out at your favorite store? Do you know your mail-carrier’s name? Many people are in our lives for more than a moment, yet we might not think to take the time to smile and say “Hi” as we pass or take an extra moment to extend a little courtesy as our paths briefly cross. If I hadn’t done that many moons ago, as I delivered a wedding cake, I would not have gotten to know my Rachel, gotten her to come on board at my shop and had added another person who has become so special to me.
So, take a moment; be that smile in someone’s day. Our cake of the month will once again be the Summer Fruited Torte’ and in honor of our Rachel, Jim will be making her favorite, Key Lime Cheesecake.
CONGRATS RACHEL AND ERIC,
Hope you have many sweet years together,
Joe, “The Cake Guy”
