Hello friends! Once again, life became so full that we haven't had a chance to blog in forever, it seems. We took the month of July off to visit relatives, spending a great weekend in Ft. Myers with my mom and then about 8 days camping with Joe's family at Mt. Shasta CA. It was a much needed respite, and now that we are refreshed and full of good family memories to see us through, we came back and decided to dive back into the business, even though the summer months are the slowest as far as taking our product to Market. The heat and humidity in Florida are keeping customers away, locked safely in their air-conditioned homes or movie theatres, I suppose. And thats OK, because it gives us time to think about what to bring out this fall!
I baked a sinfully delicious Peanut Butter/Chocolate bundt cake with Salted Caramel glaze this past week and it was really naughty of me not to share... but I was intoxicated, I suppose. We will bring that to market this fall to sell either in slice form or perhaps small "bundts for two".
Of course, our best sellers will be back - Apple spice cake, Pumpkin pie with cinnamon pecan streusal, and many others. If our best friends from South Orange don't make it down in September as we hope they will, then we'll be at the Sabor Festival in Ybor with Tres Leches cakes (we should call them hotcakes, because that's how well they sell!)..and our Fiesta brownies with a hint of cayenne pepper, among other latin inspired goodies.
As usual, we're at the Ybor City Saturday Market from 9-1 each Saturday, with longer hours beginning in late September. Look for the Tiffany Blue booth that's overflowing with Chocolate, Citrus, and other sweet fresh fruits and creamy toppings... we promise you won't leave hungry!
Ciao for now -
