Hanging up the Apron...

Over the last 6 months I have tried my hardest to fit in cupcake orders and personal life and it's been hard. Really hard! 
I have been so short on time that the wonderful cupcakes and cakes (and more recently macarons!) I have created haven't even made it onto my website. It's a shame because I'm really proud of them but time just flies past and I never seem to get the opportunity to do such simple things - like uploading photos to my website!

Next month I am off overseas for a little while with my family - a much earned break! 
While I'd like to come back and start taking orders again, I have decided that I will be hanging up my apron. Hopefully not forever, but for the time being I will no longer be baking as Cloud Nine Cupcakes. 

I've had such a fantastic time over the last 4 years and appreciate all the support I have received over this time. When I started Cloud Nine Cupcakes I was a new mum who was looking for a way to create a little extra cash while giving me the opportunity to do what I love. Now I'm a mum of two who works and has family and sport and volunteering commitments that consume my entire week - and I love it! 

Thanks again and hopefully we will cross paths again in the future!

A wrap-up of 2013

2013 was a chaotic year and while i don't wish time away, i am glad it is over!

I've enjoyed being a part of peoples birthdays, anniversary's, weddings, engagements, baby showers, baptisms, recitals and Christmas celebrations and i hope my cupcakes have provided that special "sweet" touch to those events. 

2013 was a year that i learnt what 'spreading yourself thin' meant. Some weekends I took on more jobs than any sane person would and what it has taught me for 2014 is that it's ok to say "no". '

My plan for 2014 is to continue baking but at a slower pace. I would still love to be a part of your celebrations and will do my best to be able to bake for you. 

May 2014 be a year of good health and fortune.

Ballet cupcakes for a little ballerina!

This weeks special customer was a little ballerina who was performing her first solo

Layer of the week

I don't thank these ladies enough.
All the eggs used in Cloud Nine Cupcakes are from very happy backyard hens who regularly have free roam of the yard.
Of course, occasionally the ladies go on strike and when they do our eggs are sourced from other happy backyard hens (and failing that free range eggs from elsewhere)!

These two girls are the weeks top layers - one each a day!

More baby showers

The last couple of months I've been trying out some different decorations for baby shower cupcakes and only now have i remembered to take some photos!
