To celebrate the launch of A Little Cake Place’s website and blog, I invited close friends, family and supporters to join me for an afternoon Soiree. The invite only event was fun filled and guests had the opportunity to view and personally try a variety of products by A Little Cake Place.

As the guests arrived they were greeted with a glass of champagne and had the opportunity to get a photo before enjoying the delicious treats that awaited them. I had a variety of cakes on display and was rather thrilled to hear a friend say ‘it’s like a game, you have to pick out what is cake and what is real’. Vases of real flowers were in amongst my sugar flowers and some found it hard to tell them apart! I was delighted to hear such lovely comments on my cakes throughout the evening.

As for all celebrations, it would not be complete without a cake to cut, especially for the opening of a cake decorating business! I worked on a signature design for the occasion that complimented my website and slogan, ‘Haute Couture of Cakes’. Simple, elegant and yet striking in colour and design, it almost seemed a pity to cut the cake when the time came!

I only over-catered a little bit (ok a lot!), so by the time we’d had champagne, canapes and hot finger food, some of the guests were wondering just how they would make room for the signature cake! Despite this, most of the cake and extra cupcakes were gone by the end of the event and I noticed many people sneaking up for seconds – a good sign that my cakes are as irresistible as I thought! Some lucky guests also walked out with take home cupcakes, their lucky door prize for coming to my event!

A lot of thought and preparation went into the Soiree and I would like to thank my parents for supporting me through my venture. I had to hold back a tear when Dad made a little speech before we cut the cake to commemorate the occasion.

Thank you to those who brought me gifts to celebrate the opening of my business. They were not expected and I was humbled by the thought.

I thank you in advance for spreading the word about A Little Cake Place and I invite you to keep visiting my website to see the exciting things I am up to!
