Welcome 2012!

As I sit and think back to all of the amazing things that happened here in the shop over the last year, I can't believe that the year has passed and the bakery is another year older.  This whole bakery thing just kind of happened and every year we are more and more grateful that Maxie B's was able to be a part of so many lives here in the area.

A yogurt shop, turned scratch bakery....who would have imagined.  Robin Davis has done such a wonderful job creating a business that has grown and will continue to grow....we all at the shop are so thankful for you! {**cupcake kisses**}  She has designed this place for all of us gals to come, be with friends, be productive and be proud of what we do every day.  Robin has allowed many of us to grow up here in the shop regardless if it is a first job, a career in the making or a way of life; we all love her so much~

Throughout this last year we have been a part of two issues of Southern Living Magazine, made over 225 wedding cakes for happy brides and grooms, been a part of so many birthday parties, made dessert for lots of Christmas dinners, had a hand in a couple of marriage proposals, announced the much anticipated sex of several pregnancies with a specially filled cake hiding either a blue or pink layer inside (so fun!), welcomed Maxine...our little mascot....into the bakery world, added a couple of new babies to the Maxie B's family (welcome Gracie and Shelby), enjoyed time together together in the shop with our traditional pot lucks for celebration and experienced lots more than can be noted.  We are truly a family here at Maxie B's and we thank all of our customers for being a part of the magic, too!

Without the orders for the Yoda Cakes...the simple Coconut Cake for Sunday brunch...the special birthday cake for that 1st birthday party...we just wouldn't be where we are without the customers!  Thank you for allowing us to do what we do, and thanks so much for loving it!  2011 was our most successful year of business of our the 26 years Robin has had the shop...and 2012 will be even better.

So here's to 2012!  We hope this will be a great year and we look forward to continuing our relationship with the Triad and those all around.

I wish you all a great year as well~
