Pass Go! Collect 200 Dollars!

Well if you haven't seen this weeks episode of NEXT GREAT BAKER... stop here! I won't spoil it!

But for those of you that have, needless to say it was exciting! I REALLY enjoyed this team project! Working with Jay and Dana was like working with my two best friends from childhood! We had a blast.

Obviously, time got the best of me on my spell check... ARGH!

We did have quite the challenge as far as the dadgum door. It was HYSTERICAL. I definitely had the giggles after the challenge was complete.

As far as Legacy Cakes is concerned.... OHHHH MY GOODNESS!!!!! I am SOOOOOOO excited! The floors are down, the walls are being painted... cabinets are in... Its ALMOST DONE!!!! Can you believe it??? I think we have set a world record! Haha!

I know I have been saying watch for pictures.. but I am almost tempted to have a big reveal!!! Thoughts??? Lets take a vote :)

The Time Has Almost Come!!!

Well we are days away from the NEXT GREAT BAKER premiere! Can you believe it?? I know I can't! It has been a mad house for the Rountree clan the past couple of months! We could never even begin to express how grateful we are for all the opportunities we have had! 

Legacy Cakes location is coming along!!! We officially have demolished 5 walls... and put 2 back up! We have ripped up flooring, taken out old shelves and started getting down to the nitty gritty. We have a new AC coming in, an electrician coming and of course new plumbing. Sounds like a lot huh?? Yep! But we will be finished with that by Wednesday! Wahoo! Whats after that you ask?? The fun stuff! New floors, new paint, new light fixtures and then it will be time for move in! WHEW!

I just got this link for an interview I did, so be sure to check it out!!

Pictures are coming soon of the shop, so be sure to check back!

Grapevine, Texas 76051

We are absolutely thrilled to be moving forward! Quickly, I might add!

Keep checking back for updates as to how construction is going, pictures, and of OPENING DATE!!!

Other updates... Michael and I are back in DFW! Wahoo! We are thrilled! Boxes are unpacked...closet flooded...closet is fixed...never a dull moment! We would never have been able to do it without all the love and support that has surrounded us since day one. Thank you all so much for all of your time, energy and love. (Especially you dad! We never would have gotten where we are right now, with such amazing timing... you have truly been the BIGGEST HELP EVER!!!)

Hope everyone is digging in the backs of their closets to find their stretchy pants for Thanksgiving... there is a ton to be thankful for!

What Are You Thankful For??

I can honestly say, I have been overwhelming blessed in the past 2 months.

I have an AMAZING family that stands behind me, continually surrounding me with encouragement and love, and of course... always loving the sweets. I could not have gone this far without them. Thank you so much for all each and every one of you have done... I know it has been quite the whirlwind (I think it is just beginning).

A few updates for Legacy Cakes... we are almost completely finished with all purchases! WHEW! Let me tell you... there is A LOT of equipment! Hopefully we will be signing on a lease for the space.... TOMORROW! When will we break ground on finishing the place out you ask? FRIDAY! At the latest Monday! Needless to say... I'm extremely excited!

News on the NEXT GREAT BAKER: Commercials will start airing for the show during the new Sarah Palin show on Sunday! We will also be on the TLC website starting next week! So take a sneak peak at the bio's of the cast!!!

Legacy Cakes will be taking Holiday orders! If you are interested in ordering Cakes, Pies, Desserts, etc. please email and we will get it started! We will also be offering ADORABLE Christmas Baskets!

Stay Tuned...Hopefully we will have an address is this week!!

Things Are Starting to Fall in Place...Hopefully

A long over due post!

The past week or so has been jammed packed of working my darn tail off! I call potential bakery spaces, call, call, call and then call some more. Lets be honest... it has been a loooooooooooong discouraging road.... BUT I am checking out a place tomorrow that sounds like it could be an answer to prayer! So everyone, you know what that means... one BIG step closer to finally opening!

My website is coming along AMAZING!!! If you ever need anything to do with websites, photography, logos, etc... you must talk to Becka... the owner of Pill Designs! She is fabulous!

Michael and I have also made another BIG, AWESOME, EXCITING decision! We are moving to Keller!!! We are absolutely thrilled to be coming back to the Metroplex and be even closer to opening the bakery!! WAHOO!!!!

Other amazing news... my best Leasha is officially a mom!!! I am so excited to go meet little Miss Londyn tomorrow... and I have a little surprise! Hehe soooo cute!

Hopefully my next update will be that I found the spot Legacy Cakes will be!!

Life is Becoming a Blur...

Quick update... no such thing... there is just too much!!!

I am now the proud owner of bakery equipment! I still need a couple basics... but nothing to sweat over! So whew! God has truly been blessing this entire gigantic change... which if you know me... change is not my favorite thing!

Michael and I have been searching hi and low, and all around for houses! Let me tell you... it is totally exciting and completely terrifying all at the same time! It is just like Goldie Locks for us... is it too big, too small or just right?? We like a lot... love?? We don't know that yet.

Lets talk a little more about cakes! Legacy Cakes is sooo excited to start taking orders! If you know anyone that is wanting to celebrate a special event (wedding, birthday, anniversary, graduation, showers, etc) Send them our way! We want to celebrate with you! The holiday season is coming up... and you know what that means... its time to EAT!

Be looking for some special holiday treats coming to you!!!

Blogging Rookie

October 6th....oh goodness....the day my blogging career begins.

My name is Megan Rountree. I am passionate about several things (see About Me).... but lets elaborate on one specifically....SWEETS!

I love creating new recipes, coming up with new designs for even the smallest treats and seeing eyes light up when they try one of my creations.

My newest project/ up my very own shop! I am hoping to have this finished by December 1st. I want to focus on Special Occassion cakes, but at the same time not neglect the everyday pleasures baking brings you (cupcakes, pies, cookies, brownies...oh my!)

My challenge is starting with the hunt for equipment! And goodness gracious is this a challenge. Mixers, Ovens, Fridges, Freezers, Tables... just to name a few. Let me tell you...its like be a kid in a verrrrrry expensive candy shop.

I am very lucky to have an amazing family that is also passionate about my bakery.... I think it might be for some free goodies :)

I will keep you all posted on the craziness that is about to begin....Stay Tuned!
