National Dessert Day
October 14 is National Dessert Day. It also happens to be my wedding anniversary, so I think we all have reason to celebrate and eat dessert first today!
According to nationaldaycalendar.com the origin of this celebration is unknown, but I for one am glad it exists.
Here are a few interesting facts about desserts I found online (so surely they’re all true!).
What, no cake facts? My favorite dessert is actually not cake. Weird for a cake baker to admit, right? Not really when you think about it. I tested 15 or so recipes to find my go-to vanilla cake. Repeat for every other flavor I have on my menu, and well, after all that, I never wanted to see a slice of cake in front of me again!
I actually don’t have just one favorite dessert. It seems I love all the goodies that I don’t offer on my menu. When it comes to a little something sweet my heart belongs to ice cream, cherry pie, cheesecake, crème brulee, and tiramisu. What’s your favorite dessert?
Once upon a time, my website had a blog component. I used it to not only showcase my orders, but to give really important details about what to consider when ordering your wedding cake. Budget tips, new trends, floral considerations. All the things.
Well life got in the way, and sadly, the blog died. If you have read my "About" page, you know that we are a long time homeschooling family, and that takes up a lot of time. In my spare time (what's that?), I like to research curriculum, grade papers, and clean up science experiments that were left out. I also teach five baking, science, and cooking classes at our homeschool co-op once a week and help lead a couple units of girls at an American Heritage Girls troop.
I have loved the busy-ness of growing these little humans, but that baby who I jokingly blame for starting this business? She's a teenager now and sometimes goes on deliveries with me! The toddler I had way back then? A middle schooler!
They're old enough now, that I'm not needed as much, and I can devote time once again to keeping up with a regular posting schedule. Well, semi-regular...I still have a stack of papers to grade and there's some icing in the mixer. ;)
I hope you find the information I post helpful as you plan your wedding cake or dessert table for your big day. If you have any questions, you can always reach out, and I will be happy to help!
Hi! I'm Melisa.
Yep, only one 's' in my name!
