Last night was one of those nights. I was exhausted and thought I'd never finish the cake I was working on. I was finally able to wrap it up and crawl into bed a bit after two o'clock in the morning, cake finished and ready to be delivered in the morning.
All of the exhaustion and doubts about whether I created the cake the client had hoped for vanished when I saw the smile on Allie's face. Her blue eyes lit up when she saw the little hula girl atop her cake. That smile reminded me why I make cakes. What could be better than making a little girl smile? I'm not sure it gets much better than that. For a brief moment I get to share in that special moment in the life of my clients. I feel quite blessed to have those opportunities.
Happy birthday, Allie and thank you for letting me share this sweet moment!
