Last week, I got a phone call from a friend saying another of our friends wanted to order cake pop for her son's farewell party. Minutes later, the friend in question actually called me. After negotiating on a few things, I happily agreed to do it. As this is only my second time (first one was for my own son's birthday party) making cake pops, nervously but proudly today, I managed to complete the task.
As she didn't have any specific preference for the cake pops I came up with this idea. Not bad, huh? Hehehe... I certainly think so. The last time I did it, I left the packaging part to my sister and her friend. I didn't know it could be this renyah and time consuming. Arghh.. but a promise is still a promise especially when its an actual business transaction. Even though I'm not that much of an arty type of person, I can safely say that I'm happy with the outcome of the decorating part.
The day before yesterday, the same friend called me again and made a last minute order of cup cakes for her friend's birthday party. As she knew I could make cuppies too, she asked me to do her a favour and make her 20 or so cuppies (yesterday). I thought of Never Saying No as a life motto and said yes. Again, she asked me choose the colours and decorations myself. To be honest, I am no too good at this. I love to play with colours but for the design, I'd be limited to something like this.
As this is an experiment of sorts, I gave her some complimentary cupcake balls as she is officially my first customer.
I should do this seriously as I have no proper job at the moment. So, anyone out there living in Dublin interested in ordering? Let me know. I am taking orders from now on. Prices are negotiable and can be discussed.
Thank you and wish me luck!
