I first discovered my love for cake art in early 2008 when researching how to make a cake for my hubby's birthday. I found so many helpful sites, blogs, youtube videos and facebook pages where people were willing to share their craft. I soaked it all in and used every family occasion to practice after that. Soon, friends and family were asking me to do their cakes (really?). I've been busy doing cakes part-time ever since.
Recently I took an extended break from creating custom cakes after the birth of my daughter, to spend time with the kids. During my free time (in between baby's sleep intervals SIGH), I happened on CD, by chance. I loved viewing all the beautiful works of art that were represented in cake. I waited over 3 months before posting my first pic from sheer intimidation at the level of talent I saw here. After just viewing photos for a few months, I noticed how supportive everyone was and got the courage to upload a cake! I'm glad I did. I've received nothing but cake love here and it's boosted my confidence.
I do a few cakes here and there still (mostly for family), some of which I've uploaded, but thought I'd also share some of my old personal favourites from the past few years as well. I hope to get to the level where I can inspire others one day as I've been inspired by so many great cake artists! And to learn more from all the generous artists here as well, of course!
