Welcome back to Installment #2 of the BakerMadness Ride of Your Life!
I think we were in the Queue Area last week… well, like most excellent attractions, we still are. So popular… so many people involved… Not to mention the technical crew behind the scenes!
This week has been all about research. Well, research and napping. Many phone calls. Many websites. And much excitement met with… but you need this before that.
Our story is not unlike an Indiana Jones plot… or a room escape game on your iPad. Find the key to unlock the door… have to move the monkey statue to reach the telescope. The telescope is looking at a distant tree branch. There is an arrow with rope, but no bow…
Such is the Startup.
I love it. Each day this week I have sort of selected an area that I think is important to the Cafe. One day, we shopped housing. One day I did candy flowers and royal icing doo dads. I boned up on banking. I spent 3 hours researching chocolate candy molds. Like the shoe. That started as a search for a particular Plaque… which I never did find. I spent a good amount of time going over notes and progress checking my business plan. And grappling with the discovery of what I didn’t know… I didn’t know. God Love The Internet… Keep it Smart and Free!
I plan to start packing boxes, I really DO! I have several, and they will be filled today. Packing always sux, and I have honed the skill of procrastination to the point of performance art.
But the time is ticking. We are due in Largo for the business meeting on May 31.
<<News Update, This Just in>>: My Room Mate has been able to seamlessly replace us. This is an important piece to the well being of everyone involved. So Happy! Deep gratitude.
Roy, my roommate is the director and editor of BakerMadness the Web Series. His library is vast… and his editorial imagination and know how make it feel like I have a little bit of Hollywood in my back pocket. Its an idiom. (only Archer Fans will laugh at that.)
This morning we have been discussing how to bring a bit of the flavor of the webcast to the shop itself. Roy has some great ideas about the soundtrack of the shop. We would like to see this grow to be an actual in house produced video enhancement… The media creative piece is probably my favorite. It is a toss up between that and Menu Design (flavor profiles and that palate stuff. Oooo thats good stuff).
Today though… we are only just approaching the load platform of The Ride of your Life. Up ahead you can pick out a pair of 3D Glasses. I have 2 styles to choose from; a black plastic retro cat-eye frame with rhinestone accents, or an over-sized white aviator Britney Spears/DJ Jazzy DOG style.
Oh! and by the way, I am receiving your letters and emails! So many great ideas and support. Folks that I didn’t know were watching… so a shout out to you all.. Keep it coming. You feed my enthusiasm!
