We Cleaned Up!

Running a bakery business, specifically for smashing cakes, can be a lot of fun! The only “downside” to it is that we do have a lot of cleaning to do, both inside the store and outside the store. This means that we have to take care of our equipment, and at the same time make sure that the shop looks pristine when our guests come in. One thing that I noticed when I came into my shop today though is that our side walk and area of the parking lot was a bit messy.

Luckily, our friend Andrew, runs a cool business by the name of ViperTech Mobile, and well let us say that he took care of our problem outside. You can check him out on: http://www.vtmobilepressurewash.com/. Now, I’m a little biased, and the reason I chose Andrew is because I’ve been knowing him for a long time and, apart from verifying that the work he does is good, I’ve taken into account the fact that he is to be trusted.

I remember cleaning out the ovens earlier in the day, and making sure that the rest of our baking area had the right amount of cleansing, and I hit my head on the wall… It was PAINFUL, but at the same time I could help but to laugh because at any time of the day accidents can happen. I remember in the beginning of my interests in bakery I would fail miserably in creating the “perfect” cake, and it would always end me leaving with a feeling of more to be desired.

However, the more I worked on my craft, the more careful I became in my cleaning process the less accidents I got into, and the better my cakes came out. I got to the point where my family would constantly ask me for my cakes, and it came to the point where I just knew that I could make a living giving others exactly what they wanted. That’s how good Andrew is as well, hence why he’s expanded to multiple cities as you can tell from him servicing people in:

Sugar Land, Texas: http://www.vtmobilepressurewash.com/sugarland-texas-pressure-washing/

… and even in Humble, Texas: http://www.vtmobilepressurewash.com/pressure-washing-humble/

Having grown up with Andrew I can verify that the same hiccups, the same hurdles, and the same roadblocks we had to overcome in business have finally been melted away by our desire to become great at what we do, and even setting a brand new standard in the work we represent.

I look forward to showing you more of what we can do at Shop Smash Cake and the beautiful creations we will be delivering to our clients, so please stay tuned for that. If you haven’t followed me on Twitter yet I suggest that you do so by clicking on the right side of this page to go to my Twitter feed. In there I’ll constantly keep you updated on recent events, and it’s much more quicker than coming to the blog, and hey! You can also tweet me any questions you have regarding your first Smash Cake experience.  and we’ll work on answering them for you.

In your service,

Saturday Kick-Off

We’re kicking off our first post with our passion, love, and excitement for our Smash Cake business, and we want to truly be of help to you in getting you the perfect photos, themes, and experience for you and your baby. We want your child to be able to look back twenty years from now with a slight hint of embarrassment and amusement as they see themselves covered in delicious, warm cake! :-)

The smash cake trend, as seen on Today, is spreading like wildfire, but why?

… Maybe it has to do with the moment that your baby falls into that cake.

Or, perhaps, it can be your baby’s first smile as they plunge into the delicious icing, and warmth of the chocolate fluff that they delve into…

… But, what if its the sheer joy and excitement that’s radiated through from your baby as they have the time of their lives?

I mean, just take a look below at Sully enjoying his cake below:

So, what can you expect from shopsmashcake.com?

  1. Fun ideas for your baby’s 1st, or 2nd birthday.
  2. Case examples of those ideas coming to life (our favorite).
  3. The people who have helped Shop Smash Cake become what it is

I want to clarify our third point, because it’s a little bit more different than most other brands.

You see, everything from the cake mixes, our bakers, our photographers, and the people that help keep our venue running effectively and at maximum capacity must be named. Shopsmashcake.com isn’t a one man job, it’s a team of many people that come together and collaborate to create an impact in the life of one family at a time. Through we can also impact Houston, Texas, and the United States as a whole.

We strongly believe in the ripple effect and we know that the work, the recognition, and the memories that we create today will transcend a lifetime and help impact more people for time to come.

With that being said, we’ll see you on the next one. ;-)
