Ack!  

This is what happens when Laika wins an Oscar. Even a technical one. I get slammed with 40 additional ciabatta, an obscene amount of souffles,  and 9 dozen artisan pastries. I am running out of racks, people!

wtf did Laika win?

Boxtrolls would've been last year's Oscars?

I keep having trouble with the response with this on my phone, so off to the laptop -- it kept erasing the comment. Go figure.

Laika won a technical award at the separate Academy ceremony a few days ago, and it was announced in a tiny segment during last night's awards. Still an Oscar, just for technical achievement. As their studio is only two miles from my cafe, they put in orders a lot when they win awards, start new productions, and wrap productions. They're a celebratory bunch. ;)

Well, they made Coraline, which is one of my absolute favorites, so more power to em!

Laika makes me tired. Very tired.

Yikes!!! That's a little extreme to trounce on you last minute. At least the Oscars are only once a year.

Well, the technical awards ceremony was a few days ago, prior to the big ceremony last night. I figure the order probably was placed Friday or Saturday. But it was a hell of a way to start my work week. Wow. They also have a tendency to place large orders like this after they break ground and wrap on productions.

I used to work for Panera. That order for damn near made me break out in hives.

I hope it went well!

LOL, then you know exactly how I feel! Were you an associate, in catering, or a baker?

I managed to get it all done and get myself out of catering's way by 6:30 so they could use my kitchen for prep... so I'm happy to say I survived. ;)

Jeebus that's a lot of baking :-/

Just glad it's over now. Although it is projected to be a heavy catering week. Ugh.
