I honestly love baking.
The hours to open this kind of shop would suck because you have to get up so darn early, but I just think it's something I would love doing. I love discovering new recipes, and most of all, I love the look that people give me when they eat a dessert I've made.
I have it all planned out: I wouldn't just open it from 10 - 6 like so many bakeries around. It would be more of a 11:30 - 9 pm shop. I think there's a big void for a dessert shop that's open later in the day. Have you guys ever been sitting at home and say "I want dessert!" That happens to me ALL the time but I'm limited to ice cream at the grocery store OR I have to start making a cake at 8 pm knowing full well that by the time it's done, I'll be ready to go to sleep!
And if there was a shop with things such as ...
this available at 9:00 pm, wouldn't you desperately want a slice?
I'd make cakes such as:
this chocolate indulgence cake ...
my delicious carrot cake that Evan drools over ...
OR my favorite cake that I've ever made ... Banana Sour Cream.
I wouldn't be limited to just cakes though. I have quite a fascination with cupcakes as well. In fact, so much of a fascination that cupcakes is the theme of Liliana's first birthday party! I'd DEFINITELY include these on the menu:
these Chocolate Chip Cookie dough cupcakes are TO DIE FOR.
Maybe one day I'll open "One of Those Days."
In the mean time, I'll just keep prepping and experimenting in my own kitchen!
