We are alive!

21 Jul

Yes, We are! … I have been trying to get something up in the past months … but course there was no even a minute extra to do anything else but kids, cakes, cupcakes and deliveries,

because we are growing, we are busy and sometimes overwhelmed. So if you are our friend, family, new customer please understand that we love you all but we are going to very busy times with our babies, company, and work and we are learning how to manage our day efficiently.

Anyways, here are our past 3 months, enjoy them ❤

A vegan princess cake birthday

Our own princess Amelie ❤

An Allergy Free Cake for Barton G

And Happy Bday cupcakes for a friend

A cute Circus Cake ❤

and more birthday cupcakes for lolo

And these cupcakes where for a party where our pregnant friend was going to find out the sex of the baby. The filling either ( blue or pink ) was going to be the surprise... I love this idea ❤

And I love this pic taken at 3 AM after a bottle of champagne and wine to celebrate that one of my best friends was in town after 2 years... I love this pic and this girl ❤

And this one was taken that same night... ( location : my kitchen)

And a happy bday for daddy

Busy

29 Apr

And yes I am B U S Y… and if I though February was our busiest month, I have no idea of what was coming.
I started this year with my regular with 3 wholesale accounts, as of today I have 10, and many new clients and customers that have become part of our Bunnie Cakes family and personal friends.
So now my mornings look something like this everyday,

From making 200-300 cupcakes a week, our production grew to 300-400 cupcakes a day,

With that said, I got some new help; a wonderful intern who is graduating to be pastry chef and of course my children, specially Noah who always proceed to make his quality control checks ups on the cupcakes,

We celebrate St Patrick’s Day with our drunk green cupcake,

And our favorite food truck Dolci Pecatti, sold many cupcakes and the best gelato in Miami period ( please go and try them, I guarantee you will like every single flavor in their menu… ask for sorbets if you want a vegan option! )

Some cute cakes flew out our doors,

And our daughter became Miss little Bunnie Cakes, because I just can’t stop buying cupcake or bunny related outfits ( She is herself a mini cupcake … delicious!)

And back to our cupcakes … We just loved doing this birthday display for one of our customers… and who said that because is vegan have to look “healthy” or “not kid friendly” … think again! (everything below is vegan!)

And we also celebrate Earth’s Day with many vegan cupcakes at the Epic Hotel Residences in Brickell,

And our great new intern Angela,

I am busy, and when people ask how do I do it, I just don’t know what to say… I just do it !… thinking about them, my inspiration

🙂 And for all of you who ask… yes I do it all, I am the one that answer the phones, send you the invoices, bake, decorate and sometimes make deliveries and take care of those beautiful babies you see on the pictures,

So everytime you think you cannot take any other thing on your workload …just find your true inspiration I guarantee you that will keep you going,

Cupcakes of the week… waiting for Amelie

25 Aug

Last week was a lot of work and a lot stress in our house. We are ready for Amelie’s arrival and happy to see that the day is coming soon.

Now 38 weeks pregnant I am ready to see her.

We will do an announcement on how we will be handling orders in the next couple of weeks… we will be taking orders but with some restrictions. I’ll keep you posted!

Cupcakes of the last 2 weeks… and Luke’s 3rd Birthday! :)

17 Aug

Hi there !

Last week didn’t get a chance to post or take many pictures but today somehow I got the time and the energy to do it.
I am 37 weeks pregnant and ready to have Amelie! I was ordered last week by the Dr. to be on bed rest until my 38 week, for me that was a joke. When you are a mother of 2 toddlers and trying to run a company … bed rest is mission impossible.
I wanted to thank all the people who participated in our giveaway for giving me some great advice for books and Congratulations to our winner Carolyn! . 🙂
Here are some pictures of our work plus Luke Birthday’s party this past Saturday.
Enjoy xo

Cupcakes of the week and a NEW GIVEAWAY!

3 Aug

I started this week with a very positive attitude and new way to enjoy life.

Last week was crazy busy and I lost my patience in several opportunities. Since I am very hormonal my first reaction is to freak out and think the worst, we have been through a lot ( financially and emotionally) during this pregnancy… and now that is getting close to an end is a combination of exhaustion and fear, to a new beginning, a new responsability, a new life.

But there is no fear this week… our love for each other is what is stopping this fear and giving us the strength,

So now that we are in this positive energy vibe… I want to invite you to another giveaway! … Just comment on this post below and tell us what is the most inspirational book you have read!  Please also become our fan on facebook HERE OR follow us on Twitter HERE. Giveaway will end August 13, 2010 12 pm… and you will win ONE dozen regular size cupcakes with your favorite 2 flavors. Good Luck everyone!

Here are the week in pics…( sorry not a lot, couldn’t keep up with taking pictures)

Cupcakes of the week and learning to be patience

28 Jul

I wanted to share this post with you yesterday but became mission impossible with the kids. We had some accidents with potty training and went back to training pants… but we are giving Luke his time to develop as his own pace.

We also had a great event on sunday afternoon, we met great people and felt in love with the Gyrotonics machines ( please see pictures below) … the food was delicious as always and our cupcakes were a hit…

The rest of the week has been pretty stressful… not only orders, standing and working in the kitchen for long hours, but also  bills, potty training, meals, laundry, medical appointments and getting everything ready for the baby has taken my patience to the limit in several opportunities.

So I decided that my mantra this week is:

Breathing in, I calm my body. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment. I know this is a wonderful moment.

And this excerpt that I copied from one of my facebook friends ( translated from spanish):

‘Lo contrario del amor es el miedo… con el amor te expandes, con el miedo te encojes, con el miedo te cierras, con el amor te abres. Con el miedo dudas, con el amor aceptas’

‘The contrary of love is fear… with love you expand, with fear you shrink, with fear you close your soul, with love you open it. With fear you doubt, with love you accept’

Here is my week, in pics…

enjoy
