The Caker is going to NYC (again)

Hello everyone,

I thought it might be time to let all my customers know that I am going away on an inspirational work experience trip for 6 weeks. I will unfortunately be unable to take any cake orders from August 23rd - October 9th. On the upside, I will certainly come back blossoming with new ideas and a renewed passion to make the best cakes that money can buy in Auckland.

My trip will begin in New York where I will be interning at a bakery in Brooklyn called Ovenly. They were named the best bakery by the 2013 Time Out New York Food and Drink awards, so I'm very excited to have the opportunity to do some work there, learn new things, and maybe even impart some of my own baking knowledge. I get the impression that they are a busy busy, real deal, bakery because they have a morning shift, mid shift and night shift (I opted for the mid-shift). While I'm there I hope to learn a bit about making donuts, pies and maybe even cronuts.

I will also be spending a week in Paris where I will visit my sister and grandparents who live there. Paris is one of my favourite places for eating and I do not plan to hold back one bit on my consumption of croissants, clafoutis and chocolate. My grandfather makes the most delicious jam know to man, so hopefully I can bring some of this back to use on my cakes.

After that, I will head back to America, where my boyfriend and I plan to do a road trip to the Southern States. We haven't mapped out our route exactly yet, but it will end in New Orleans and I know it will involve a lot of pie sampling and hopefully a pie making class along the way. 

I will keep you all updated with what I'm learning, seeing and eating, and I hope your orders will still flood through when I'm back.

x Jordan, The Caker.
