Behind the Bakery: Anniversary Weekend in Pittsburgh

The end of September marked the 3rd wedding anniversary for me and Brad. In typical Hicks fashion, we packed up and drove to Pittsburgh for a long weekend! 

We have a couple must-eats, must-sees, must-dos for every trip and then we find some must-trys, too!

September marks the ending of summer, the beginning of fall, and the beginning of my orders picking up.

Orders: July and August

Well hello there! Long time, no post, eh? 

Like I said in my June orders blog post, I am combining my July and August orders into one post because:
1. Summer is always slow, and

These past 2 months brought some fun orders (hello, Nautical Cookie Truffles!) and ANOTHER wedding! Keep reading to see what I've been up to and to see what I made for last month's wedding. SPOILER: the colors were gorgeous.

Orders: June

As busy as April and May were, June turned out to be a surprisingly light month. I had much-needed weekends free and wasn't working 70-hour work weeks as I was the previous month (dreams don't work unless you do, right?). 

June was a nice mix of graduation orders, bridal showers, and all-around celebratory orders. In the midst of it all, I even made Nutter Butter cookie truffles to celebrate my husband's 29th birthday, I just forgot to get a picture. Whoops!

Orders: End of May

May was busier than normal, hence the 2-part blog post reviewing the orders. Busy is always good in my books, so I can't complain. 

I made cake balls and cake pops for graduation parties, clothing stores, and more! Keep reading to see how I ended May.
