Nice to meet other Texans here! I live in Justin area, so I am not far from most of you.
tracy702: Lewsiville has not changed much. That if if you don't count the George Bush Turnpike and the new 121 road construction. There is also the new Costco, SuperTarget, new Super Wal-Mart, shopping centers, eating places, etc. All the appartments that have built up around the mall. Nope, still the same old place.
I'm still a real newbie to the cake biz, but have been I'm looking to get going full time at this in two years. I've got a plan and I'm sticking to it! The donut shop and tea room idea is awesome. I would try looking at churches also. I'm going to ask my church if I can rent out of them when I "get established". Right now, I'm still working on the finer points of smooth icing with no crumbs.
I've been looking into the cost of a license, but figure I'll do that this summer when I'm on summer break from teaching.
