Cake Shop Update

Well… I guess you can say I officially have a job now :) Chris and I finally got around to totaling up the time I spend per week on cakes, and so far I have enough orders each week to count as a part-time job :) Some weeks it’s even full-time! Yee haw!

This little business is growing pretty fast!

I now have a logo, designed by the lovely Fonda LaShay.

Chelsea’s Cool Cakes was also asked to partner with the Salvation Army’s thrift shop (Fretex here in Norway) to showcase some cakes at a bridal fair they were organizing to help sell a big donation of wedding dresses they received. They needed some cakes and samples to make the event seem more wedding-ish and I needed some advertising! Win win!

You can check out one of the news features we received here:

“At the launch event on 3rd May, brides will be able to have trial wedding photographs taken by Algård Fotostudio and sample the very unique wedding cakes of local baker, Chelsea’s Cool Cakes.”

That’s me! Chelsea’s Cool Cakes in print!

The flyer for the event. See my little cake down at the bottom? It was also the maiden voyage of the logo!

Even Julie got in on some of the action and took some “trial” wedding photos :)

The event was a success. Although not as many people came to participate as the organizers had hoped, they were able to drum up a lot of press for Fretex and have high hopes of seeing the results in sales and donations this upcoming summer. And for me, it was great to see my cakes in action! Hopefully I’ll get a bit of extra business as well!

The Marvelous Adventures of Julie K. Walton – Part 2

…Continued from The Marvelous Adventures of Julie K. Walton

Once Julie K. Walton arrived safely in Stavanger after her Norway In A Nutshell expedition, she quickly realized that her Norwegian adventures had only just begun. Together with Chelsea and Chris, she climbed mountains, gazed over perilous cliffs, traversed the fjords, surfed the North Sea, ate reindeer, celebrated Norway’s Constitution Day, and made lots of new friends. It was a grand adventure indeed!

The Marvelous Adventures of Julie K. Walton

Once upon a time, a lovely lass named Julie K. Walton had the hardest semester ever in college. No sleep, no social life, and no showers. Just homework, homework, and tests. So, after her last grueling final of the semester, she decided she had finally had enough and hopped across the Atlantic ocean for a 3 week adventure with her best friends in the mystical land of the vikings.

It was a wondrous 21 days. It all began in Oslo where she toured the city on her own for a day and a night before she met up with her friends. When they were joyously reunited, after over a year apart, the trio hopped the night train back across the country to Bergen to traverse the famous Norway In A Nutshell route (well…at least it’s famous in these parts). They took various buses, ferries, and trains there and back again from Bergen, stopping in small towns like Voss, Gundvangen, Flåm and Myrdal.

Julie K. Walton got a pretty good taste of Norway in her first 4 days, but the adventure was just beginning…
