I work full time with exceptional children. Children with Autism have a special place in my heart. I bake part time, which is now turning into two full time jobs. Years ago, I found a quote on a classroom wall, "Find a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life". I love both of my jobs.

I apprenticed as a baker 25 years ago. My whole life, I have been been called, "creative, artistic and crafty". I have been able to merge both of my crafts which puts me in my happy place. I have realized how important it is to celebrate the high points in life. I get to see people at their best, Birthdays, Weddings, Baby Showers, Graduations, It's awesome!

I get lost in cake. I could spend hours working on one cake and never realize how much time I passed until my husband calls and says, "When will you be home?"
It's always an hour to an hour and a half later then I tell him, Lol!

Now that my son is married, and my daughter off to college, I am really enjoying this season of my life. My husband also bakes and we hope to open a bakery soon.

Cupcake Sheet Cake

I tried this for the first time today. It was easy peasy and I thought I would share. I took 17 cupcakes and fit them together as snugly as possible. After I settled on where I wanted them, I put a tiny bit of icing to anchor to the cake...

Cake Hack

On the bottom of each cake pan I own, I write in permanent marker, the size of the cake pan and how much batter it takes. This saves time looking it up on charts. The writing will last about a year and I just re-write it when it fades. I hope...

577 cakes in 4 years and I dropped my first wedding cake.

It gives me anxiety even now. I was headed out the door to deliver a small wedding cake with 30 minutes to spare. I was holding the cake in large plastic container as I have mentioned before, holding the cake and container about waste level when...

Thank you, Donna! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season, too. I am familiar with Hatteras Island and have many great memories of the beautiful place. For some reason that I can’t really pinpoint, the land and ocean on the island touch me far more than anywhere else I’ve ever been, including the Caribbean. You are an incredible cake artist and I look forward to seeing more of your amazing work.
