Cookie Cake Decorating (Using Facebook Live to Market a Home Bakery)


Good morning Facebook! How y’all doing
today? Happy Valentine’s Day! I just wanted to get on here real quick because
I wanted to tell y’all how you can send love from 5,000 miles away so I got to
tell you a story about what happened to me and to give you a little background
here’s what home bakers and probably all bakers deal with on a regular basis we
get spammed a lot and I know that you know everybody gets spammed in their
email but what happens is if you have a website set up or if you put your phone
number or an email public you get messages and things from different
countries people asking all the time for an order of 500 chocolate cupcakes to be
delivered you know picked up by a courier
cash-on-delivery and so you have to have your like spam filter on level setting
high all the time and I do with this probably once or twice a week and you
know I’m kind of used to it by this point so Valentine’s Day was coming up
and I knew I was gonna get up quite a few orders a little more busy than usual
and so I got an email from my website somebody entered the information into
the contact form and it was you know very bad English and a spam filter high I
was like oh great here’s another spammer while I’m you know dealing with actual
customers but my way of dealing with spammers has always been to just message
them back and act like they’re a real customer and so I did that and I just
got all the information like a regular order and this person kept messaging me
back and come to find out the person said that they had a son and their son
was at UT going to school and so got all the information and when spammers get to
the point where they’re supposed to pay you
they always flake out so that’s why I just treat them like normal
customers because I know they’ll always just never pay and it’s no big deal like
I just go about my life but this person actually did send me money in the middle of
the night which it must have been daytime there so this person is from
Vienna Austria her name is Claudia so thank you Claudia if you’re watching
this thank you for the order her son is all the way over here that’s I had
to google it that is over five thousand miles away and she just wanted to make
sure that her son had a Valentine’s cookie cake and so it is my great
pleasure to get to make this for her today I appreciate all my Valentine’s
orders but this one was super special to me and I wanted to share it with you all
because it’s just so neat so let me get started so she just wanted to say
wanted it to say Happy Valentines love mom and you know being a mom now I can
totally understand if my son was in Vienna Austria I would totally have to
find a baker to send him something special on Valentine’s Day too so as a
mother this kind of hits home for me all right so I’m going to use white
chocolate and red to keep it super colorful and I started doing a different
border because I’ve got really good feedback about it and it’s just really
big polka dots it just looks a little more yummy so people really really said
they liked it I don’t know if y’all can hear that but
my sweet little Valentine’s baby boy is in there mmm that’s his new thing so the way I’ll do it is happy is going
to fit really nicely into this small area and then Valentine’s and then I’ll
put love mom at the bottom mm you’ll hear my baby laughing in there
sweet boy so you might not be able to read it just
yet but I go over it with with different color icing so that it’s super readable
I’ve already done about 5 cookie cakes this morning and this is going to be the last one
before I start making the deliveries all right that’s it and I’ll show y’all my view of it so that you get a better
idea what it looks like so there it is happy Valentine’s love mom so once again
this is from 5,000 miles away this lady ordered this from Vienna and I’m really
glad she did I’m really glad that I got to be a part of this and I guess the
moral of the story here today is not everybody is actually a spammer you
don’t have to have your spammer setting on high sometimes you can be a part of
something really awesome just by you know playing them along so
everybody have a happy Valentine’s Day and I’ll see y’all next time bye
