After a long and eventful week, Cup Cakes in Heels or more commonly known as CIH, turns one week old. Unlike Other Jobs where you dread the thought of coming into work, waking up this week was no problem despite the fact that some of us were waking up around 4 in the morning. Which is a big change for myself seeing as that was the time I would get home but that's best left for another blog post. This week seemed to have zoomed by with more cupcakes flying off the shelves as the days past by. Catching the morning rush was quite successful, we even developed a regular, a tall sleek morning commuter on his way to the LIRR, shout out to the Red velvet lover. Hope to see you again this coming week. Also this week the ever so kind people from "Top Shelf Tattoo" have become addicted to our Cupcakes sending their assistant several times a day to soothe their cupcake craving. Also down the block from us are the friendly Pizza guys at VI PIZZA who come in to enjoy our Illy's Espresso shots.
Around the store there was no need for us to "get use to each other".Everyone is so eager to work. We are really building a family and we mean it when we say we are Jenny's babies (and Wing's too!). It must be like our cupcakes which are the combination of the perfect ingredients to create that unique taste; we must be the perfect ingredients to the perfect workplace. Everyone just loves their new job. We always come to visit even though we are not working, we stay over our shifts just to hang out, we are all becoming more than co-workers. I feel like we've been open for years and we are all brothers and sisters. We are all coming up with names for everything. The back area where we bond washing the dishes has been coined "the Dungeon", which might sound like something out of a 70s slasher movie but have no fear it's a cute little area which houses out most important utility The Oven and the sink. My favorite room is the Kitchen, which I sadly spend the least amount of time in, it has been named "Jenny's Lounge" a bit of irony seeing as Jenny is never Lounging but working hard to ensure all of Bayside can enjoy her cupcakes. I'm sure no one will correct me when I say that we ALL love our new Job, Jenny and Wing really make us feel right at home always buying us lunch and best of all FREE CUPCAKES. The highlight of the week was our staff meeting which was actually a little dinner celebration for completing one week of business. As the days go by things just get better and better at CIH
Bayside has really taken a fancy to us, everyone's favorite seems to be Red Velvet out selling her other cupcakes sisters everyday. "The Louboutin" as she is named better not let all this attention go to her head,another popular flavor is "The Prada" our delicious Pistachio which is always right behind Red Velvet at the end of the day. Everyone has developed their favorite, people come in and order six of one kind because they have become addicted. Bayside has been more than warm welcoming with tons of people coming in and wishing us the best. This week has been more than successful, we hope that this week and the ones that follow continue to be as warm and fuzzy. Cupcakes are a delicious treat, but as Jenny says at the end of the day the real treat is knowing that a customer went home satisfied.
