Well I could not have wished for a better week to start Peek-a-boo life out at the shop.
 
It started with the lovely Ella and her family being my first official customers in store; she came to pick her army of Cookie Monster cupcakes up to celebrate her 10th birthday.

cupcakesAs a special treat for being my first shop customer she received her own personal box of Cookie Monsters.

All in all it was a great first week. Lots of really good feedback and happy customers!!! I still managed dinner out with Kate and Max on Saturday night and enjoyed Sunday off, although I did cook breakfast for 60 people!!
 
Monday came and fantastically the orders and enquiries have started to pour in, a few of this weeks orders are a Lego cake, a couple of birthday cakes, a baby shower order and a few more to confirm.
 
Next week is nearlly fully booked already!
 
Jamie from "Gleam Windows" came today to give my windows a once over, they look great. I didn't realise they were that dirty until he cleaned them.
Give him a call on 0423 197 320
 
 
 As always the cakes will be uploaded to my website and Facebook page so go along and have a nose. Don’t forget to “like”my Facebook page while you are there! I am getting a great response through Facebook and Google so keep spreading the word !
 
 
 
 
Have a great week,

I have received an order from overseas too for a special Easter delivery,this is from a customer who has found me through Google, her son lives in Manly and she wanted to send something a bit different for Easter this year, so spread the word to family and friends abroad and you might just receive a little

Peek-a-boo's first blog!

Posted on March 12, 2012 at 8:55 AM Comments comments (104)
 
Well to celebrate Peek-a-boo's first birthday and 3000 hits and nearly 10000 views on my website, Peek-a-boo Party cakes finally has a shop and a "BLOG" which people have been asking for.
So here it is, I received the keys to my shop last week and have been busy cleaning and setting up!! with the help of my 20 week pregnant Wife Kate and the ever helpful Max!
 
The shop is looking great, it will start off as a workshop where I can bake and create!! also where customers can come to discuss their design or order and pick the finished masterpiece up.
A range of cupcakes will also be available to order in advance in boxes of 12.
Then in a month or so daily cupcakes will be available to purchase from the store and hopefully selected outlets, and who knows maybe a little coffee & Cupcake shop along the way.
 
It is all very exciting and we are looking forward to getting pounded with orders :-)
 
My first official cake from the shop was for the fantastic Bold & Beautiful swim group to celebrate their award ceremony. It was a great cake to start the shop off with and went down very well with the swimmers, a great morning was had by all. Max was put to work making sure each member of the club recieved a business card and he was not taking no for an answer (a very pushy salesman) even staff and customers of Manly Wine went home with a pocket full of Peek-a-boo literature.
