Another amazing holiday season at the bakery has come to a close and I can't thank all of you enough for continuing to allow Caroline's Cakes to be a part of your traditions year after year. Needless to say 2020 has been a year unlike any other, and, like many small businesses, we relied heavily on your support. This cake community that you have built motivates me and the team at the bakery everyday. Your sweet notes, numerous calls, and generous sharing of stories of past seasons helped us navigate the stresses of the holidays and pushed us to ship out your cakes!
Late last night as Charles and I put the last package on the UPS truck, I couldn't help but think how happy Mom would be with all that we have accomplished. With your help this year we came out with our new Hot Cocoa Cake, sent record numbers of Cake Bites (now in their second season), left the freezers and our inventory completely empty, and naturally made more Caramel than we ever could have imagined!
Never one to settle, Mom would immediately start thinking about ways to make the next season even better. New cake flavors would be discussed and then tested right away as dessert for Christmas dinner. We would sort through the scraps of paper where we had scribbled notes to ourselves with ideas from the season and we would always breath a sigh of relief at just how awesomely stressful the holiday season can be. And so, with the ovens not quite cool from the last recipe it's back to baking for me! Can't wait to see what 2021 has in store for Caroline's Cakes!
Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays!
Eat Cake. Be Happy.
