When I planned for my National Mom’s Nite Out Celebration I knew that I wanted to have a sweet little treat to thank those who took the time to come and support me. I also knew that I wanted it to be special and with a personal touch. So I decided to go with a cake – specifically, a photo cake with the image of my blog logo and the MNO logo. Pretty standard, most supermarkets provide this service, right? Imagine my surprise when I called and visited over 10 local supermarkets, only to be told that their photo machines were broken. I felt frustrated and, as the event grew closer, very disappointed that my vision wouldn’t be fulfilled.
The week before the event I finally found a grocer – not located close to me at all – but whose photo machine was actually working. I asked the baker if I could email my image to him, as time was limited and getting there would be difficult. I was surprised when he informed me that I needed to come in with my photo printed out to scan. It was around this time that I discovered YouCake. YouCake specializes in beautiful, high-quality, edible photo toppers that can be customized any way you like. Unlike most bakeries, YouCake works with digital images – so your photo can be sent via email. Should you choose, they’ll even add their own graphic embellishment – making your design that much more beautiful. Also unique to YouCake, they can create any size or shape cake topper (up to 11 x 17 inches). This was perfect for me as I wanted a full sheet cake! Read on
