It's a Wrap- goodbye October 2010- you've been good to me

Well well well. Ahhhh. Do you hear that? That's me- breathing in the biggest sigh imaginable. October has been insane! If it wasn't busy enough on the books, I also managed to fit in the time to film a tv show. Yes. That's right. I will be making my television debut this winter for a show we filmed for a major television network. At this time, I'm not at liberty to say which show or what network, but you better believe once I can talk about it, I will!

Many many cakes were created this month. I've posted some of them in an earlier post. I am going to share with you the rest of the cakes from this month, with the exception of the one we created for TV. That beast will have to wait until the show airs.

As you can imagine, I'm very tired. I'm also very blessed. These last 3 years have been some of the most amazing (and trying) in my life. I was looking at my accounts this month and realized that I'm only 3 cakes away from 1000. Yes...1000 cakes in 3 years! I couldn't believe it either. I've pulled some hours, some long nights and much time away from home. It's been good, but it's going to get even greater! I know that there are big things for Sheri's Edible Designs in the future. Thank you everyone for being a part of this ride!

Now onto the cakes!

It's October....again!

Wow! Another year, and another October. I have been truly blessed to continue strong in business and enjoy season after season of incredible weddings!

This weekend was very busy, as usual for the first weekend in October. I had an amazing time creating lots of beautiful cakes! I wasn't able to photograph all of the cakes from this weekend as I had time constraints and dead camera batteries...ugh!

The clients were amazing this weekend! Jessica and David, whose cakes you will see in a moment, first contacted me over 2 years ago! They met with me in my tiny Pineland Station studio and browsed through a portfolio much smaller than what it is today! I have enjoyed their visits to Hilton Head every summer and love when they order two small cakes of their wedding cake flavor to enjoy while they are vacationing. It is truly bittersweet. On one hand I am happy their day has finally come and that they are husband and wife, and on the other I am sad not to see their names on my client list, or anticipate their wedding with all the excitement of old friends!

In addition to Jessica and David, I want to congratulate the other couples married this weekend! The Papanias, The Grays, The Haleys, The Kays, The Michaels', and the Masons!

Again, I will await the pro-photos from the cakes I couldn't photograph but in the meantime,
I will share most of them with you!

I've forgotten what the insides of my eyelids look like..........

I've forgotten what the insides of my eyelids look like..........

Sleep doesn't come easy in September...okay it doesn't come at all! But who would want to sleep when there are so many beautiful wedding cakes to be created?!

Sorry to have left you hanging in the blog-o-sphere for so long. Where were we? Oh, yes that's right- in August! Forgive me friends!

The last two weeks have been jam-packed with wedding cake production. I've been busy playing cake wizard behind closed doors and an appointment schedule of unavailability. If you're new to my blog or you haven't yet secured your wedding cake with Sheri's Edible Designs, it's safe to say this is a crazy time of year and I have been known to clear the calendar of all things consultation. I do this to be able focus my energy to the cakes and clients who've ordered them- after all, it is someone's wedding cake we're talking about here. Not to worry though, the same courtesy I extend to my current clients is the same courtesy I will extend to you on your wedding day. I let nothing come in the way of my production schedule and I'm sure that is preferred.

So what have I been so busy creating? Behold the unveiling of............
