A Letter From An Attendee At The Martha Stewart KB Home Event

Monday, August 8th, 2011
This is an email Miss Holly received from one of the attendees at the Martha Stewart KB Home event:

 

Hello Hollis,

 

We wanted to write to thank you for the wonderful job you did on the Martha Stewart KB Home VIP Event in Windermere, FL. My daughter, husband, and I were treated to the very best cupcakes we have ever tasted in our entire lives!!!
Your displays, decor, and details of the Cupcake Contest were Award Winning Blue Ribbon in my opinion. And speaking of awards, we feel so honored and special that my daughter, Colleen won First Place from Martha herself! I felt my little “black sheep” entry was the comic relief for sure, but Colleen’s entry was so beautiful and we owe it all to you! Choosing us as finalists was kind of you….thank you!
With your great emcee/people skills, you “won” the day for me by making the entire event fun and friendly. It was a day we will never forget and will always be in my memory as a special day of fun creativity spent with my daughter. She lives in Minneapolis and I only get to spend limited amounts of time with her due to the distance, so this was a very special treat for us.

We’re sure to become regular customers of Miss Holly. Your cakes are truly the best anyone could find anywhere.

Thank you for the sweetest cupcake memories!!
-Constance
