I am a 30-yr old mother of 2 wonderful kids ages 10 and 2! I work full time and do cake popping on the side out of my home. I have no culinary training of any kind, but have roots in the arts and portraiture. I made my very first cake pops in Jan 2012 for my daughter's 1st birthday party. Did 3 other sets of cake pops for family members throughout that year. When my son turned 10 in December we threw him an Adventure Time birthday party - I made a small cake, character cake pops and tons of party decor. Family and friends were very encouraging so I decided to "launch" a cake pop business on Jan 1, 2013. I have already learned SO much about cake, cake pops, and working with chocolate - and I LOVE every second of it (well, there have been some seconds that I guess I didn't love, but we're talking in general here ;)
I am mostly on fb and really love the encouraging, helpful community of the cake/artsy desserts world. Looking to find more friends and connections and learn more about this fun and very creative field!
