I have to give a big shout out to a great connection I have made in my community. I have the privilege of working with an amazing event coordinator that also happens to do a great job decorating cakes. Her name is Rebecca Reszka and her company is Social Solutions.
I usually take two cakes whenever I go to a presentation at a realtor's office. This was a marketing techniques that I learned of at the ASP course I took in July 2007. I tell the realtor that I will bring whatever flavor cake they choose. I take that request and then I call Rebecca and she works her magic.
Rebecca makes me two cakes, one decorated and one not. The one that isn't decorated usually has a bag of icing that is ready to decorate with lying next to the cake. (Everything needed to have chocolate cake without the aesthetic value.)
The decorated cake (symbolic of a house after staging has been completed) usually has gold piping along the sides and bottom and my company's name, Staged SO Right, piped in the middle. Sometimes she adds a few sparkles, but usually there are no graphics. This week however, she surprised me! She took the logo off of my business card and created it in icing on the cake.
I was so thrilled with the way it turned out. The pictures really don't do it justice because I took the photos at an odd angle and I am just not a good photographer. It really did look wonderful and looked just like my business card. I appreciate her attention to detail and she makes it so easy for me to refer her to other people. I have found a great partner here in Elizabethtown and hope you all can find someone just as wonderful to support your businesses.
