Mom Scores Big With Birthday-at-the-Bakery

Blank Slate

Masterpiece in the Making

This weekend, we experienced the perfect storm of things that make my girls ecstatic–a surprise party, a visit to ele Cake Company, and a chance to decorate baked goods.

M1 and M2 have had a steadfast and abiding love of all things baking related since they were tiny. M1’s portfolio contains several masterpieces made with very limited equipment. She enjoys hearing the raves of family and friends alike who have tasted her various creations.

But, nothing revs her up more than having an opportunity to use real equipment. If she can do that in the company of good friends, all the better!

We have been loyal customers of ele Cake Company before it was even ele Cake Company. We’ve even done this birthday party once before for M1, but it wasn’t a surprise and it involved different friends. I love the convenience of this party–ele handles the decorating, the refreshments, the instruction, the supplies and, even the clean up. It’s an awesome way to spend two hours and with a gourmet coffee bar and full bakery case while the party goers work away, even the parents can have something to do.

My birthday girl was genuinely surprised and my youngest was very tickled that she had helped prod along Mom into planning PipingBagsand holding the party.

The girls we excited to give the decorating a try and ele provides an experienced decorator to assist the party goers with basic techniques, all while decorating a birthday cake for the attendees to eat at the end. The best part, in my opinion, of the party remains the party favors. Who wouldn’t want to take home a fresh, delicious cake with them from a party? I love that it exposes so many more families to our amazing local independent cake company. We have converted several friends into devout ele Cake Company fans through cupcakes, birthday cakes and other yummy, creative baked offerings. You simply cannot go wrong with anything this community gem offers!

CakesOf course, my battery in my camera waned prior to me capturing any finished cakes…Mom Fail. But, it was easy to see from the developing designs that these cakes were all stand out achievements for novice decorating divas.

The decorating expert had nothing but compliments about the gathered group and said it was fun to have a group with questions who were interested in learning things and making their cakes look so nice.

This wonderful cake company has two locations, one in West Carrollton and another in Beavercreek, so if you’re local or just passing through, you can swing by and try a sample for yourself. Our West Carrollton location is conveniently located off I-75’s newly renovated exit 47 with on- and off-street parking. Check out their Facebook page and give them a “like.”
