WHITEFISH BAY - What quarterback Aaron Rodgers means to the Green Bay Packers, cake decorator Drea Purpora means to Sendik's in Whitefish Bay.
"I'm really good at multi-tasking," said Purpora.
It's been a busy few days for the cake decorator as fans get ready for Packer parties.
This week, she's been quarterbacking one of the biggest cake decorating efforts of which she's ever been a part.
Business has tripled since last week with people wanting anything green and gold on their cakes for Sunday's parties.
"These cookies alone, I've done over 60 of them. I've done a dozen of these. The single layer ones over 30. 48 double cupcakes," she said.
That's just Friday.
It's hardwork for this Packers fan.
"There's no other team to root for," she said.
Which means she will not decorate any cake with the Chicago Bears logo on it.
"It's not even jinxing, I don't want to upset the customers," she said.
Customers that will be asleep when Drea gets into work tomorrow at three in the morning.
It's an early wake up call, she doesn't seem to mind.
"To know that you helped make their day special, a little bit, it's a good feeling."
