The Hudson Cakery Anniversary Party {Milestones}

Two weeks ago, I was thrilled to celebrate the one year anniversary of The Hudson Cakery’s new space in Weehawken. (Or Wee-Boken as my area is lovingly called since it’s one block from Hoboken)

Even though I’ve been professionally making cakes since 2009, I didn’t have a kitchen/storefront to legally call my own until I moved to our current (awesome) space just over a year ago. After our first busy wedding season, one crazy hurricane and a new year…it was time to finally celebrate.

HC Party

There were about 45 people in attendance who came out to support me. It was so great to see new and old friends, family members, neighbors, event pros and more come out for a fun evening of sweets and of course, champagne! Check out some pics below from the party.

This first batch of photos was taken by the talented Kris Rupp  – she photographed my sister’s wedding a few years ago and we’ve stayed friendly ever since. She does all kinds of shoots (newborn, wedding, family, etc) and her work speaks for herself. It was so great to see her!

The Hoboken Cheese store provided the snacks. Shop local people!

I created a wintery dessert table – full of ivory, white and metallic accents. A sugar snowflake on each cupcake and gold sparkle dust on the cake pops. I could have really gone over board with this table on decor but I just kept it simple and full of sweets. Everyone loved it!

My autographed photo signed by Ms. Martha Stewart before I opened. I swear some days, I think I built a bakery just so this can hang on the wall!

These photos were taken by the very friendly and sweet Jason Giordano. He did a great job of capturing every detail.

It was such a fun event and I was beyond happy to see so many friendly faces.

Small business may not be glamorous but that night it was fun to pretend it is!

Cheers to another great year!
