This last week was a whirlwind experience! I had just completed the previous week’s order, which included wedding cakes, lots of cupcakes, and of course a last minute 800 cake lollipop order (not to mention that my mother was out of town in Hawaii that whole week) and as I sat on my couch at home trying to take a breather I got a call from none other than the Oprah Show!!! To say I was shocked was an understatement, but of course when they asked me if I could get 500 sugar cookies out for the Ellen Show by Thursday I said yes! My family knows that I will almost always say yes to anything and then I just try to figure out how to do it!
For all of you who don’t know the whole Oprah/Ellen story, Ellen had been trying for quite some time to land on the cover of O Magazine and this past week her wish came true. O Magazine wanted to send her a special gift to congratulate her on the day the magazine came out and that is where I came in. I have to say a big THANK YOU to my whole staff, family & friends for helping me pump out 500 amazing cookies in 48 hours…it was quite a task (along with running a storefront and making other daily orders as well), but they did an amazing job with it! So here are some photos that I took to document the fun experience! Hope you enjoy them!
Even my best friend Kate stopped by the shop to lend a helping hand!
After rolling all the dough, baking the cookies, outlining & filling them will frosting, laying on the transfer sheets, and putting an icing border on THEN we had to cut the ribbons and bag ALL 500 cookies!
I also thought it would be a lot of fun to make one giant sugar cookie in hopes that Ellen would put it on her show and I guess it worked!
Here are some shots of the delivery! Ellen’s office was so much fun inside and of course getting onto Warner Bros Studio wasn’t half bad either!
God has blessed me with such great opportunities work-wise and I can only thank Him for these amazing and fun experiences!
