Vancouver Cake Designer, Lisa Lyttle bakes 1000 Cupcakes for Art World Expo 2012!!!
Hey Cake Eaters!
Vancouver Cake Designer, Lisa Lyttle here…hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!!
Well, I need to tell you all about mine! I sponsored an event to support the Make and Break it Art Foundation at Telus World of Science in Vancouver, BC, called Art World Expo 2012! It was absolutely fabulous! About 1000 attendees and over 100 vendors came to the event…Bif Naked performed! There was a Body Art Competition and a Fashion Show! Lots of fun!
I personally made 1000 colourful cupcakes for the event, plus had 7 cakes to make on top of that! Talk about stress!!! LOL! Next time I’m hiring some helpers!!
I have to say, I would consider myself to be quite a strong person, mentally and emotionally that is. That being said, this past weekend got the best of me. I had less than 20 hours of sleep in 5 days, by the 5th day I couldn’t take it anymore and broke down. For once in my life I felt defeated, hopeless…was too tired and weak to move, walk, or work on my cakes and I had 3 cakes to finish for some Vancouver clients. The thought of my cakes not being finished when the client arrives was NOT an option, but unfortunately it crossed my mind and gave me tremendous stress ad anxiety. What was I to do? Well, I’m proud to say, I succeeded! I took a 5 hour nap and started my cakes at 3:30am and finished at 9am for pickup. Still can’t believe it! Not sure how I did it, but I did!! This morning, I slept until 10:30am…I NEVER do that!!! Obviously I needed it! Haha!
It was such a rewarding weekend on many levels! The biggest challenge I have ever given myself and I succeeded! Maybe I can take over the world! LOL!
Here are some fabulous pictures some amazing photographers took of Vancouver Cakes aka Lyttle Bake Shop at the event. I am of course, the blonde with big hair!!
