What's happening

Friday 22nd of September 2017

   Loooooots has happened since the last update of our "What's happening" page ... So let's go back to June shall we? It all started a bit like this ... (grab a chair) 






   And of course with festivals, macarons and cakes in between ... 




   By the end of June, our AK logo went up on the wall of the new building, and we absolutely love the result!!!


   And that of course, stopped the local rumors of who was moving in ... NOT! ...
"Will they have a seating area?"..
"Will they be serving tea and coffee?"..
"Will they do bread?"..
(*All will be answered further down, we're still in June right now)

   July brought us from France, a very special guest we had been expecting for a long time! Armelle's goddaughter (and Princess) Camille. It was her very first time flying over on her own, so for an 11 years old, you can imagine it was a massive adventure! She was our helper in the kitchen for a few days (there was touristy stuff and some shopping to be done too you see) and she was an absolute delight to have around. She learned a lot and practiced her English with local people and customers ;-))

A dirty apron is a sign of hard work!



   Camille went back at the of July (her parents asked for her back ... )
And we did our last wedding cake in our now old shop, before the big move!


   
   First of week of August: measuring, varnishing, painting, levelling tables ... 




   Then on Thursday 3rd of August...
With the help of friends, local people and a trolley ...
We moved ...
Across the road ... 
By foot ...
From "Kilcullen next to Ger's veg shop"..
To "Kilcullen next to Nolans Butchers" ..

Thank you Roy!!!

Thank you Jane ...

New kitchen!!!

   And then of course more cakes ...





   Before we knew it, it was the end of August and time for the Kilcullen River Festival 2017 edition!! We had a fantastic day, and are very grateful for the support and lovely comments on the day ( hard work does pay off then ;-))




   The festival also marks the end of the summer for us, and while kids are going back to school ... guess what .. we were just making more cakes .. 






   September has also brought a very special challenge that I adored: a family tree cake! The pictures speak for themselves: 







So what's next ?!??

   Well, we have promised a special day to celebrate the big move, and that will happen in November. We have to go through Halloween (yaaaayyyy!!!) first and start preparation on the big "C word in December" as people are already enquiring. 
   We are also getting a higher demand for ready to pick up kind of cakes for last minute celebrations, so we are working on a list of entremets and afternoon cakes that will suit all occasions on shorter notice. 







   Finally, we owe a lot of "Thank You" around, which we will do properly when we do our big move celebration day, but in the meanwhile,

  Kenny and I would like say a massive THANK YOU to Jane who has been working with us for over 2 years now and who is simply a little gem for her hard work, dedication, believing in us, and well... just being herself ;-)) *wink wink Jane*

*I guess we owe you the answers to the 3 questions now:
No
Yes to take away eventually 
No, too busy with cakes ;)

Thank you!!! Thank you!!! THANK YOU!!!
