Petites Bouchees will be at the Richmond Bridal Show on January 11, 2009 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. The "Hungry" Hubby and I are very excited about this. We never thought about participating in an event such as this until one of our friends suggested it. Now I am on a race to get setup for it. I plan on presenting a cupcake wedding cake and presenting macarons as favors or for a dessert buffet.
It’s less than three weeks away…Gah!
What does this mean? I need to do a deeper study in cupcakeology. Talk about cramming for an exam! I’ve been combing the web for nice cupcake decorations etc. I plan to be handing out samples in mini-cupcake form.
I am looking for an elegant cupcake tree. Please, if anyone knows of one please let me know! Ofcourse, I am attempting to build one myself. I got one of these cardboard cupcake trees and I think I can decorate it with ribbons and nice craft paper.
My photographer friend will also be at the bridal show. I think they are one of the best around town. Check out their portfolio at Quarterman Photography. They are teaming up with an awesome videographer, United Wedding …I am so impressed with the quality and artistic touch of the videos I have seen from this site.
In other news…
Because of the anticipated slowdown in business during the winter months, Petites Bouchees will be scaling back its operations. I will be suspending the online store for now and will be accepting very limited orders for delivery and maybe shipping once a month. I would like to take this time to rethink my business model. I might switch to just delivery and shipping – expanding free deliveries to some parts of the Richmond area. This past year has been great and had been a tremendous learning experience! I have more macaron and cupcake experiments to undertake too, not only with recipes but also the production process. More on that later…
I am done with my Holiday baking! Here are some pictures from this past weekend.
A baker’s rack is a macaroner’s best friend. Otherwise where will you find all the counter space?

And the holidays will never be complete without some cupcakes!
Have a Merry Christmas and may it be filled with sweetness!!!
