I’ve never been a big fan of pumpkin pie, but THIS one makes me very happy. It’s a reminder of WHY I do what I do. I truly believe that sharing food is essential to community building. It’s a labor of love for me, and this little bakery has allowed me to meet some amazing people who have made an effort to support The Sweetest Things- and ME. The family who ordered this pie didn’t even know we existed until earlier this year. Since then they have made a conscious effort to purchase from us. They’ve never mentioned it, but they’ve ordered every month. Without fail. We notice this. We notice when you order from us or tell your neighbors about us. It matters. A lot. These last few months have been rough. Between work obligations and family obligations, I have felt like I was failing. In big ways. In small ways. Missed appointments. Missed emails. There is honestly too much for me to keep up with right now, but I stubbornly refuse to hire help again until we get closer to an opening date. (I REALLY think we made progress on that recently.) I take the care of my staff very seriously. I don’t want our delays to make their lives harder, so I wait. And I struggle. BUT I’ll remember this pie. And the cakes. And the cookies. And all of the things you order. I’ll remember  the encouraging messages and calls. And family and friends who are so excited for us. And I’ll keep baking. And I’ll keep failing, but I’ll do my best to always FAIL FORWARD, so that I can keep sharing food and spreading a little bit of love whenever I’m able.💗

Another glamorous day in the life of a small business owner.😃 Early morning emails and baking. Heading to support @apexhighschoolbands Mattress Sale🛏 (It sounded weird to us the first time we heard it, but it's cool. They set up a showroom of name-brand mattresses. People shop. Band get much-needed funds. Easy peasy- they deliver.) If you need a mattress, come see us! Heading to @nccueagle later to see our oldest in the @nccusoundmachine.

It is our firm belief that if we all work together, doing whatever small bits we can for one another, we can have a profound effect on the world around us. Carolina Cares Inc is a group that seeks to do just that. Currently, they're in need of funds to provide school supplies as the new year starts. If you're able to help- a little or a lot- please do. https://www.carolinacaresnc.org/donate-funds?fbclid=IwAR1GK2CE3VGkU4fNlgmjvtCeHJDiq-tdp3M4U8ZTwiBubuKariibmQRT_O4

Thank you for the lovely cake. There were so many compliments on both how beautiful and it delicious it qas.was
The cupcakes are so amazing and have the best flavor!!
That cookies & cream brownie was oh so gooey and delicious. And don't get me started on the lemon bars, or the buttercream sandwich cookies, or the triple chocolate cookies. All are just THE best!
Mother Nature clearly has it out for us this year. Sadly, there will be no Downtown Cary Food & Flea this Sunday. 😩 Hopefully we'll see you next weekend. Get some snacks and snuggle up with your sweeties!
What's on the menu for tomorrow? Santa wants his sugar!
