Well hello there 2019! January is here and I’m super excited to be planning the next couple of months ahead of me. From product development, scheduling pop ups and workshops, I really can’t wait to hit the ground running BUT there are a few words that come to my mind when I think about this new year:
Intentional. Joyful. Slow.
Intentional with my time and my projects. Joyful with each season that comes and embracing each experience. Slow- it ties in with my thoughts of being intentional and being able to take care of myself throughout this year.
As an entrepreneur it is SOOOO easy to get caught up in the rat race of cutting edge content and the feeling that you need to constantly re-invent yourself. You can get sidetracked from your own success because you’re too busy looking at what someone else is doing thus NOT being intentional with your time.
NO MORE I say! LOL!
I asked all of you in an instagram story about what you’d like to see more of this year and you all came back with: more tutorials, recipe sharing, pop ups and workshops! Well my sweet friends, that is exactly what I hope to be focusing on this year and that being said, I will continue to be closed for custom orders until further notice. I understand the frustration in this because since going vegan, there have been SO many of you wanting special treats that align with your lifestyle. If I have the availability, it will likely be shorter notice (1 month) and spots here and there.
I know all of you are just DYING to know (lol, jk) what I’ve got up my sleeve in terms of product development, but I’m a perfectionist and don’t want to get ahead of myself before I can truly share and stand behind what I’m trying to put out there! BUT what I can show you is that I’m launching some FREE digital downloads today and I hope they will bring you a little happiness whenever you hop on your phone and your computer.
I hope all of you enjoy these fun images and I promise each month will just get cuter and cuter!
Thank you so much for your continued support of The Cake Mama. As a new year always brings change, my hope is that you will all grow with the change I have in store for this sweet little business of mine. Cheers to a new year everyone!
If you were to ask me a couple years ago if I would ever one day rejoice in the magic that surrounds chickpeas, I’d probably not be listening while in the midst of draining the liquid out of a can. 😱😂 It wasn’t until our family stopped eating animals nearly 2 years ago that I […]
Over the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity of trying out Freshprep’s newest addition to their meal delivery service: VEGAN dishes! I didn’t know what I was missing in my busy life until these easy to prepare meals were arriving at my door every week with the freshest and most flavorful dishes. To boot, the […]
Sweet friends, I did it. Just when I thought I made a really GOOD peanut butter brownie recipe yesterday, I went and made some MIND BLOWING double chocolate brownies today, and friends, you’d never think that a.) they’re vegan & gluten free and b.) they’re made with chickpeas!! The idea stemmed from the over abundance […]
Well sweet friends, I had every intention of having all of my ducks in a row and here we are, nearly at the end of February and I have yet to update you with all the things that I’ve got going on. Truthfully, February was a bit whirlwind in the sense that a lot of […]
Ahh raspberry almond thumbprint cookies. I have loved this cookie since I lived with my parents and baked cookies for Christmas (clearly I thing I’ve been doing for a long time LOL!) The recipe I used to use came from a “Woman’s World” magazine that my mom religiously bought and my sister and I loved […]
You GUYS! I’m sooo excited to share with you my vegan version of a newly beloved addition to your holiday baking: Ginger Molasses Sammies with Eggnog Buttercream! After months and months of trial and error to create the perfect crinkly ginger molasses cookie AND buttercream that is so tasty even on its own, I’m so […]
The holiday baking continues in The Cake Mama household with one of my all time favourite cookies to prepare: Scottish Shortbread! If you know me at all, you’ll know that I favour cookies that actually doesn’t have any icing on it- shocker! I know! While I love the prettiness of a perfectly decorated sugar cookie, I prefer […]
‘Tis the season for holiday gift exchanges and what better gift to give than one that comes straight from the heart: Cookies! I’ve been using this vanilla sugar cookie recipe for YEARS- back when I was still eating eggs and cow butter and once we went vegan, part of me was a little sad thinking […]
How are we already through the first week of school?! For some reason this year, the girls have transitioned back into the swing of school life seamlessly- I don’t know what’s in the air, but I’ll take it! I on the other hand am still trying to remember that lunches need to be packed and […]
