Lemon Poppyseed Cake

I have been trying to come up with a way to cross promote my vegan baking and cooking with my "other life" as a real estate agent. I have committed to go and visit at least 5 of my clients each week in person. So, I decided that this was a perfect opportunity to bring them some delicious baked goods. I started off with Lemon Poppyseed Cake. I made up a batch, and didn't write everything down. I plan on making another batch tonight so I will post the recipe tomorrow, along with pictures of the actual cakes before I wrap them up. I made 2 "pound" cakes and a dozen muffins.



Next week I plan to make Espresso Chocoloate Cakes with chocolate chips. When the other agents at my office saw these beauties, they asked if they could pay me to make them for their clients as well. OF COURSE I CAN!

That's brilliant, Joni! And of course, they look wonderful!

I'm already anxious to see the picture of next week's espresso chocolate cakes.

What a fabulous idea Joni! I absolutely LOVE your label and packaging. Did you print up the labels yourself, or have them done?

We must think alike, because I just posted a chocolate mocha (aka espresso) cake on my blog last night.

Holy Cow! When I saw the photo, I thought for sure they were ones you had bought at the store--until I read your post, that is. Very impressive and professional looking! I love the labels...

What a fabulous idea! I love baking and would love to give away more of my baked treats to people. I think I might try to make a few things to hand out to friends, and people I meet. I must also definitely make labels liek yours, they look great!
