For our day 16 post on the Ultimate Blog Challenge, we are to blog about the last concert we attended or movie we watched at the cinema.

Mine was Hidden Figures in March 2017 at Genesis cinema in Port Harcourt.

My favourite cake tool – small offset spatula

My small offset spatula is my most beloved cake tool. I use it to coat buttercream cakes and to crumb coat fondant cakes.

It is easier and more versatile than the big one which I also have.  I use the big offset spatula for crumb coating very large cakes only. Final smoothening will be with this small offset spatula.  I find it easier to control and maneuver.

The spatula is very helpful in picking up small fondant decorations like dots, letters and numbers etc.  I recently misplaced this spatula.  I had delivered and set up a wedding cake and forgot a small container with this spatula in it.  I searched all over the house for it.  I was sad as this spatula has been with me since my training days as a cake decorator.

I was reluctant to use my straight spatula as my knuckles kept digging into my buttercream cakes, making it difficult to smoothen.

I had to buy another spatula but I missed my old one with a wooden black handle.  The new offset spatula I bought was pink and had a plastic handle. Argh!

You could imagine my joy when I got my old spatula back.  I forgot it in the trunk of the car which took me to the wedding venue.  What a happy reunion we had!

Holiday season preparation.

The year is gradually winding down. The holiday season is upon us. Our cake business is making plans and preparations to maximize the season.

Trade fairs and exhibitions are taking place every weekend. We are currently searching for one that is a good match for our marketing and business objectives.

We also have holiday promos which we will kick off very soon. We love our brides and are planning big for them this season. Low budget should not stop you from having a nice cake on your wedding day.

This is my day 3 post in the October 2018 Ultimate Blog Challenge.
