Plus One!

Hi! I'm Wendy the new girl here at Whippy Cake! I know what you are all thinking; "how lucky is she?!" and the answer would be VERY! Seriously I am so happy to have such a fun job AND I get to work with Becki! I will start by telling you a little about myself. I have been blissfully married for 19 yrs. Ok it hasn't always been bliss, romance and candle light, but I can honestly say that I am still in love with my Baby- Daddy! We have 5 fantastic children. Charlee is our oldest, she just graduated from HighSchool and then Stephanie, she is my 15 Year old, Emmilyn is 11, Brooklyn is 9, and last but certainly not least is our one and only son Porter, he will be 8 soon! If you ask me what one THING I am obsessed with, and can't live without, I would have to say; WATER! For the obvious reasons of course, (I know nobody can live without water) but also because it's my favorite thing to drink and when it's in it's frozen state water is also my favorite snack! My most favorite times with my Family has been at the water, whether it be at Lake Powell, the Ocean, or just laying by the pool, & O yeah, the rain, I love rain! Because I get to wear my funky cute rain boots! Enough about me, I'm sure you will get to hear more as time goes by. :)

So I am a little overwhelmed by the things I don't know how to do yet, but I' m learning more everyday. The one thing that has made the biggest impression on me so far, is my new boss-lady, miss Becki! Let me just say that she left me utterly and speechlessly in awe of her, and her freaking creative BRAINS! I was there while she was naming her new collections, and let me tell you the colorful creative juices were flowing all over the place! WOW! It was inspiring to say the least. This lady has single handedly developed Whippy Cake, and with the help of Family and a couple of friends she is making her dreams come true! I don't know if you all realize that this mommy of 2 babies, has been sewing each and every flower you order pretty much by herself! She was also the one answering all the emails, blogging, handling the Etsy shop, working 20 hours days and the list goes on and on. So of-course, her talent and fabulous style got Whippy Cake noticed by a few high profile bloggers, and viola her business literally tripled over night! Very exciting stuff, but also overwhelming. She found herself in need of immediate STAFF and that's how she came to be m new boss!

Currently we are getting the last of the orders caught up, and preparing for the Grand Opening of the new Whippy Cake website coming in July! Some of you have already spoken with me through Etsy and email, & I look forward to continuing to help you with whatever you may need. I will be checking my mail regularly and responding to your messages regularly.

HOORAY for exciting things to come!
