Stormie had a book bound for me for Christmas with pictures of cakes I have made in 2007. She just uploaded the pictures and made up some script and voila-I have a published volume, looking ever so official, with a UPC code and everything. It was such a cool gift. She also made me an "official" sign to hang in the car window when transporting cakes so that cars passing by won't flip me off for going slow: CAKE ON BOARD.
It is amazing. It really is. If you are driving carefully so the cake won't spill and people don't know your reason – they are mean, grouchy passers. But if you have a Cake-on-Board sign, I've discovered, they go by with a big smile and a thumbs-up. So – anyway, my sweet Stormie put together those thoughts in honor of all the cakes (see here and here, or just do a search of "cakes" on this site) I have been making.
So, my sons-in-law and other kids got to joking around on Christmas morning as they were all telling me I should go into business making cakes and off they went on a secret mission. A few minutes later I was called to the computer where they had quickly put together a website called "JeanieCakes." You can even see it here: www.jeaniecakes.com
Crazy kids! Crazy, sweet, wonderful, honoring kids!
Guess I should put together a business plan?…Jeanie
