Location: Burlington, Ontario, Canada
I have been "caking" since my children were small. Baking since I was 13 yrs old, by my Mother's side. I took my 1st lessons from a Cake Decorator who had a small shop in my city. Store is long, long gone now. Just dabbled. Fast forward...my niece was getting married...6 yrs. ago, and I said....
"I can make your wedding cake!!" Nothing like jumping in with both feet!!! Haven't looked back since. 99.99% self taught with the exception of the early lessons and one Wilton course @ Michael's. And did take a basic fondant/gumpaste class with Lynne Jury of "Let Them Eat Cake", Hamilton, Ont., who started the Canadian Cake Decorators Guild, CCDG, of which I am a member.
This is just a hobby...have sold a few cakes, but do mostly for family & friends.
Recently retired, so more time to make cakes, look at cakes.....and practice, practice, practice......
