The Heritage Church Show....

Honestly, I am horrible at writing blog!!   Last post was so long ago....


Today was my 4th year of attending The Benvoulin Heritage Craft Show.  This is one of the best Christmas Craft show in town.  You will just love walking in and admire local craftsman ship.  Most of them have a daytime job and doing this on a side.  It is just amazing to be part of it!
I want to add photos to show you all what is the show looks like...
This is the heritage church we are having the craft show at.  This is 19th year, and it is extremely popular.  There were about 70 people lined up outside  by 8am.


This doesn't justify the craziness of this show...  The lineup inside was CRAZY!!!!

Here's my table.  I bake loads of goodies with my mom.

I hope most of them gets sold!!!  Last year was amazing, many had bought most of our goodies!  :)


These bird houses are super popular!!!  She makes amazing bird houses!  This little snowman is made by the organizer of this show.  To me, her sense of artistry is so amazing.  This little guy smells like Christmas Gingerbread...  Better hide from my dog.  She will eat it...

If you happen to be in Kelowna during this time next year, I highly recommend you to visit this show!

It was a great way to end 2012, and start of 2013!!!!   I love making little decorations with fondant, it's so fun and just love to see when my client enjoy them!

Nothing makes me happy to know that my cakes can make people happy .

Things Happen Unexpectedly

Happy New Year to everyone!

What a year 2012 was for me!  I changed work places within 4 months.  My biggest thing of the 2012 was, I got a new puppy.   She just turned 3 months!

Let me tell you, though...  She's a super handful one!!  But very loyal to me and very needy.

Anyway, back to my unexpected things in life that happened in 2012.   You know, I'm  not a bread baking person.  Because, bread is ALIVE!  You leave a dough for 5 min and it grows in to this big goop.  If I do one thing wrong, doesn't rise, looks funny and just bad news.  In order for me to learn how to bake cakes without big baking degree, I decided to get a job at a German bakery.  It  has cakes and breads.  So I got a job as a cake decorator.  Was not the job I expected!  Was not the greatest work environment.  To begin with, they were no longer "German/Swiss" Owned bakery.  They were Middle Eastern, who really knew nothing about European cakes and breads...  Just so disappointing!  The business got slower so my hours were cut.  At same time, I was working at this big box grocery store.  Suddenly, this store needed a mixer (A person, who makes dough).  All the sudden, I'm dealing with dough!  UGH!  Endless amount of dough everyday!  I start working from 3:30 am...  But I work full time, and I actually enjoy making dough!  And see my products come out nice and toasty from ovens.  I even can't wait till next day to try mixing better.  It's a non stop 8 hours work, so right now, I'm exhausted that I can't bake anything when I come home...  So I will post my recent cake photos...  Strawberry mousse cake.  One with Strawberry on top and the other, filled with ganache.  But who knew I'd work in bakery making dough, things in life really happens unexpectedly...  Well, I'm gonna try to bake more cakes on a side!!
