Boutique Chic: Pumped Up

It is that time of year again when all of our new products are beginning to come in- and I am SO excited! I love featuring cool and pretty products with a purpose and today's Boutique Chic item is all of that. They are a pretty pair of pumps that prop up your phone so you can pay proper appreciation- because everything looks better in heels(including your phone!). Pumped Up is 100% pure silicon and is packaged in a clear recyclable display box. For just $10.99 you need one for you and one for your best friend. I can not wait to put my pair of Pumped Up heels on my desk. :)

Wedding Wednesday: Delicious Wedding Favor

I have been to countless weddings where I have received wedding favors that end up collecting dust, sadly before I end up throwing them away. I hate to see wedding favors tossed aside- that's why my favorite favors are ones you can eat! This past week at the bakery we had a wedding favor order of decorative cupcake boxes. With a personalized thank you message on the box they were the perfect little parting gift. Not only are they pretty, no waste and no mess! Whether it be a wedding, party or a shower, if you are planning favors definitely consider yummy edible favors like these!

Tip Tuesday: Cleaning your Baking Pans

Have tough baked on grease or burnt marks on your pans? There is no "miracle" cleaner, that I have found, in the years of heavy duty baking and cooking on my pan.  Even though there is no miracle cleaner, I have found a little trick that does make it easier to get some of the marks off. The trick is a little baking soda and vinegar or hydrogen provide. You simply make a little paste with the two and allow it to sit on those tough to clean spots. Then scrub away and finish with a little hot water and soap. Voila!

Tip Tuesday: Cake Serving Size

Quite often we have customers looking to order a sheet cake to serve just 25-50 people and they are shocked to hear our sheet cakes serve about 150! Every bakery is a little different when it comes to serving size. Some bakeries make single layer cakes, others two, three or four. Depending on the height and number of layers, each cake has a different serving size. Also, a square cake will typically serve a little more than a round as there are the corners of cake unlike in a round. Here at The Cake Boutique our cakes are mainly 3-4 layers of cake, therefore our sheet cake will serve much more than the sheet cake you typically see in grocery store bakeries. When you are ordering from a new bakery make sure to ask the serving size of their cakes because you could be ordering way to much or not enough and not even know it! Here is a chart for what 3 layer round cakes will generally serve:

Round Cake Servings
6"- 10-12 servings
8"- 15-20 servings
10"- 22-25 servings
12"- 50+ servings
14"- 70+ servings
