Nonetheless, we had a great time making this simple elegant cake. I iced the cake smooth and made the branches out of modeling chocolate. The ribbons are also modeling chocolate.
Now that the trees have lost their leaves that means that winter is just around the corner. In my area at least, wedding business slows down a lot after Thanksgiving and usually until after the New Year. I still have a few cakes on the books, but nothing major. I do a few things to generate some extra income, but I honestly appreciate the break. It give me time to catch up on paperwork and begin preparing my taxes, but it also gives me some time to spend with family and friends.
To the other bakers out there, do you see a holiday slump also? If so, do you embrace it, or find other ways to generate holiday income?
