Wow! Take a look at the Sweet Shop now!

It's been a few weeks since I've posted pictures of how the outside of the Shop is coming along and I can sum it up in one word...WOW! Things are really coming together now folks. Here are a few pictures that show you just how far we've come in just a few weeks.

This picture shows you the front of the Shop including our newly installed (as in today) handicapped parking sign. The striped awnings that you see are retractable.

Up close picture of our address: 994 Los Altos Avenue.

This is really coming along so nicely. This is one of our planter boxes that will be filled with beautiful flowers.

And finally, here is a picture of a couple of our parking spaces. They finished pouring and completing them yesterday. This was actually quite fascinating for me to watch how this was done. You wouldn't believe how much detail went into these parking spaces. They are very nice.

That's it for the picture updates for now. Check back soon as I'm sure I'll post something soon as it's getting close to opening time. Things are getting busy as we are preparing to open our doors for you - our future Sweet Shop customers. See you soon!

Cupcakes, sweet cupcakes

What an exciting day at the Sweet Shop. Today we had all of our new Sweet Shop employees come in for a brief orientation and to show them around the Shop. We are so proud of how it is coming along and how our Shop looks. It really is like no other Shop I have ever seen! We also gave them a nice surprise at the end and that was to taste test some of the wonderful baked goods we will be carrying here at the Sweet Shop, and that includes these adorable and ever so delicious cupcakes from Sibby's Cupcakery. Many of our employees had never had a Sibby's cupcake before and I'm proud to say that they all are now fans of Sibby's. These cupcakes are truly the best tasting cupcakes! As you can see, we will have lots of cute designs on our cupcakes as well. See you all in a few weeks when we open...
