Just saying HI!

Been away for a while and just wanted to say Hi. I own Vanillas Cupcakery Inc. We will open our second store on monday the 25.

I am doing well and yes baking cupcakes for people is a lot more fun and the money aint bad either Miss tiling at times but I am blessed in this new field of work. Check out my web site Vanillascupcakery.com and drop in for a CupCake. Anyone who tells me about this site will get a special deal

CYA JOHN!

Alex

Way to go, Alex. Next time I'm in the Jax area I'll pop in. Can you be a little more specific about the "deal," though?

Alex, congrats on your success and the new venture.

Your site is top notch - very clear, concise, professional looking and an upper scale feel to it.

My former career was with a nationally known food distributor and have seen many small start ups come and go and your looks like it will be around for many years.

Good luck, Tim

Yea, I use that piping bag in the tile section at H.D. to frost cupcakes

All you need to do is tell me about this site and answer a professional tile question to confirm that you know a thing or two about tiling.

The deal is this 2 free and 10% off anything up to 1 dozen. Total 14 cupcakes at a great deal to wayward tile setters do anything to delay grouting and cleaning

Cya soon

Good to hear from you, Lexx.

From what we hear the cupcake business down there can't be any worse than than the tile business. And hopefully better.

I'll combine your last Howdy thread here for the benefit of the newer members.
