I apologise, summer blogging has been super slow! I'm finally done studying and just when I thought I would get a little bit of downtime, I glanced at my calendar and realised that school starts again, tomorrow! Back to reality!
This year has been full of milestones for me: one of which is my leaving Dressew Supply Ltd. I have been working at Dressew since the age of fifteen...I am now twenty-one! Dressew has been a huge part of my growth and development as a person and I have been so fortunate to be able to work with such amazing staff. I'm also lucky that I've made so many supportive and encouraging friends during my time there!
With all this in mind, I decided it fit to bake for my last day! I made these beautiful double chocolate numbers: chocolate cake with a rich, chocoate buttercream! Just to add a little pizzazz, I added a little fondant flower on each one. They were all gone by the end of the day so I'll take that as a compliment!
My last day at Dressew was definitely emotional. The owners, R and J bought donuts for all the staff and at the end of the day, the staff gathered at the top of the stairs and applauded and presented me with a beautiful gift and card! It was very sweet (literally and figuratively) and the kindess and support definitely brought a tear to my eye.
In closing, I'd just like to say: THANK YOU, DRESSEW!
I really can't put into words how much of an impact the staff and the experience of working at Dressew has meant to me...so as usual, my emotions came out in the form of baked goods!
