Now, I never claimed to be the biggest Star Wars fan. I'm not the biggest fan in our group. Heck, I'm not even the biggest fan in my house. But I do enjoy the Star Wars... and the production company happened to be looking for someone who's made some Star Wars cakes.
Secret plans were made and orders given. The production crew would come to the bakery for one day and shoot us doing what we do best: throwing a tea party. This time: a Star Wars tea party.
The original plan was actually to change my son's birthday theme to Star Wars and have them film that. But Minecraft is his true love and he didn't want to change from that, even for a film crew. So we arranged an extra, Star Wars tea party for that morning with my daughter as the hostess.
Now, you have to keep in mind that all of this was going on in addition to the regular bakery production schedule. I was working all this in around parties and wedding cakes as well as planning my kid's actual birthday party. It was a task!
The day started bright and early with this:
And we went from there. I'd done a little bit of prep for the tea party, but they wanted to shoot me decorating the cake. Ummm... I don't usually decorate early in the morning. And I NEVER decorate right before the cake is due. Especially a cake design I've never done before and have a time crunch on... meh, we'll just wing it!
|You can kinda see the cake in this picture. Don't judge me, I think I ended up decorating it in 25 minutes.|
My view during the interview:
|Best pose ever.|
Now it's movie time! Where's my profile? Well... here's how it works. The "In a Galaxy" series was created by Warrior Poets, Maker Studios, and Verizon. So, to see it, you can download the (free) Verizon app that works on any phone called go90. They started releasing the profiles a few weeks ago- number 3 made me cry! They release two profiles a week and will keep releasing them through February. Ours comes out on December 23rd.
So that's part of why we've been so Star Wars crazy these last few months. That and there's a new movie coming out! That, the new movie, and how much I enjoy taking the Star Wars characters to visit the children's hospital. Oh, and the Toys for Tots drive on Wear Star Wars/Share Star Wars day. Anyway, the Star Wars mania is almost over.
