    On the weekend Andrew read out from the newspaper that Jeff Bezos of Amazon says that he has had more failing ideas than winning ones. Sticking the chicken back in the oven, I replied that this is true but it sucks when you are smack …

  • And now over to McDonalds

    I admire McDonalds as a corporation. I don’t often eat at McDonalds but it isn’t because I am on a soapbox of how bad it is for you. All things considered, a burger and fries is in the treat category  (like cupcakes) and some people prefer …

  • A superhero in our midst

    Been a busy time at PGB! On the “planned” business front, Julie started last Tuesday and already has created 6 amazing cakes in preparation for our photo shoot October 14 to 16. The cakes are just gorgeous works of art… I think if there is …
