When I first set out on my mini-baking adventure and launched The Short Giraffe, I had glamours fantasies of grand charity events, elegant weddings and parties galore for my treats. All of that has happened, and its been WONDERFUL! What I did NOT envision, however, was a huge chunk of my business to come from kids! Birthday parties, preschool graduations, mommys-night-out events- they've all become such a huge staple in my weekly orders, and I absolutely love it! Baking for kids has allowed my creativity in decoration to run wild! It has also opened up my being repertoire to a variety of allergy sensitive baking options for many of these kids. Gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free and so many more have become regular menu items for me now, and they taste GREAT!
I do have to give a shout-out and a HUGE thank-you to one of my first supporters and best customers, the amazing team at The Kids Activity Center
in Lakewood Ranch. Owner Christen Wolfinger and her staff have put in order after order for everything from their regular birthday parties in-house, to their specialty classes and parent groups. They're awesome at what they do, and the center is a great place for children of all ages and events of all kinds! Thank you guys so much for all of your support from the very beginning!
Check out some of my photo's over the past few months of these cool creations for kids and events of all types!
Lots of sweet love to you!
