Sublime Lemon-Blueberry Scones are now available for nation-wide delivery at
(online ordering launches May 25th)

To quote a popular Food Network star, "Yum-O". If you haven't tried a Sublime Lemon-Blueberry Scone you are missing out. We offer several flavors of scones but this one is by far our best-seller. Loaded with Wild Organic Blueberries, sweetened with Organic Cane Sugar, and topped off with glistening Lemon Glaze, this scone is truly SUBLIME. If your only prior experience with Scones has been at a popular national coffee chain, it's time to check out the real deal. The real, FRESH, made-from-scratch deal.

Western Themed Wedding Cake

We did this Western-Themed wedding cake this weekend for a lovely client. Jenny was such a pleasure to work with. She and her fiance planned an all-out Western-themed bash at a ranch in Crowley, Texas. Wildflowers in cowboy boots for centerpieces, red bandanas on the rustic wood tables, and this cake to complete the look. Yee-haw!!

Yesterday was one of the best days ever at Sublime. I worked for 15 hours filming with the production crew from Liquid Flicks. A long day, but such heavenly fun!! My fabulous publicist Beth Hutson was there to guide the process and the whole day was captured in stills by the talented photographer, Brian Hutson.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes shots that my husband and I took.

Bogart's First Mission

Bogart's first mission: CHEESECAKE!!!!

"Cookie Boy"

cutie patootie with a cookie
This totally adorable little guy came into Sublime yesterday with his dad. Oh my goodness, he was the cutest! I was so busy flirting with him that I forgot to ask his name. So we'll lovingly refer to him as "Cookie Boy".

Warning for Idiots

It's hard to believe this is really necessary but Bogart the Hobart comes with this warning label. So I guess this means I shouldn't reach in and scrape the bowl down with my hands while it's running? DUH!

Sublime Sugar Cookies

We went through a lot of sugar cookies this week. I mean, like, a LOT, a lot. They are one of our more popular items for walk-in purchase, and why not? They are yummy to the max and super pretty to boot. We can even wrap them up in shiny cellophane bags topped off with ribbon.

"Bogart" the Hobart Arrives

Unless you, too, are a pastry chef and cake designer who owns their own business, and you have just spent 3 weeks trying to meet peak wedding season orders without a commercial mixer, you'll probably not appreciate this post. You may even think I'm being "overly dramatic" here.

I'll not go into the sordid details of the past 3 weeks of drama surrounding our "other" mixer (manufacturer to remain unnamed), I will instead focus on the positive:

(drum roll, please) the Hobart arrived today!! "Hobart?" you say. I know, unless you're in the biz, the name is meaningless. Let me just tell all of you uninitiated souls that Hobart is the gold standard. The Rolls Royce of mixers. The Ultimate. The One. Worthy of a special pet name, no doubt. While most of the "things" in the bakery have feminine names ("Bertha", "Brigitte"), I felt that the mixer, the "muscle" of our operation, deserved a masculine name.

Meet "Bogart" the Hobart.

"Bogart", in front of his new home, still swaddled and on his palette.

Making his grand entrance.

Meeting Mama.

Purring for the first time.

Music Teacher Retirement Cake

We did a custom cake this week for a retiring piano teacher and her long-time student. The Native American drum and feathers representing the subject of the piece of music she first taught this student many years ago, "Indian Drumbeats".
