I want to give a shout out to Kailie Shoemaker. You probably know her as our Cake Decorator but she is so much more than that. At 28 Kailie is the future of Susanville Super and I gotta say the future looks bright. She shared her wisdom with me about people wanting to get back to that personal interaction, she loves seeing many of our customers come in 3 times a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Me too. Kailie likes that we have eye to eye contact with our customers, she says it is coming back in style. Woohoo! Cuz that's our sweet spot. She has been with us since she was 17, we’ve watched her grow up, get married and become a mom to the extremely adorable Charlie. What an honor to be a part of this. Little Charlie gets to help mom now and then, she brought her Flarp (fart in a can available on aisle 8 :) in one day and told me “listen. It’s bisgusting”. *No auto correct, I didn’t mean to type disgusting. This kid is irresistible.
Kailie has loved baking since she was a kid, she was all about her Easy-Bake Oven. We sometimes have kids in to 'Decorate with Kailie’, when she watches their face she remembers how her mind was blown as a kid seeing decorators spin the cake and smooth the frosting. Plus they gave her a cookie. We do that! Her passion for baking, decorating and cooking shows in her work. I asked her where she got the idea to have kids come in and decorate, she said “because they asked”. Kailie is great with kids, a while back she decorated a GIANT cake for -and with- the 4H kids, it was a big hit. Seems everything she does is a hit. Super skilled in making The Best Donuts on the Planet (she even made them in the dark one night when the power was out), everything Deli and EVERYthing Bakery that’s our Kailie. She spends a lot of time researching for new ideas like the Russian Tips she is making cupcakes with now, cake design and the current trends.
Ingenuity, creativity and a smile that can’t be beat are just a few reasons this LoCaL girl makes us Hometown Proud!
