Blast from Hansen's Past...

Let's talk about Love.

We don't often get to talk about things other than cake here, but sometimes there are some life moments that are well worth getting off topic.
This is one of them.
Eighteen years ago today, a youthful Mr. Patrick Hansen took the lovely Miss Tanya Ling as his bride. They had met, of course, here at the bakery, which was just right.
Not many people can say that after eighteen years love is still part of the equation, but this couple is truly love personified. With two nice kids in the picture to continue the Hansen legacy, things are pretty great in bakery-land.
All of us here at Hansen's Cakes wish our cool-cool boss Man and Mrs. a very very Happy Anniversary...and a Happy Groundhog's Day!
Love IS in the air.
