Selma ~ Little Apple Cakes

Forum: Introduce Yourself

I have read some stories on here and I will try to be as interesting as everyone, but it will probably end up with everyone snoring in the end…

My name is Selma, mommy of one little girl Apple-Marie (that is how I got my cake name Little Apple Cakes).
Now it gets a bit confusing, I was born in Bosnia/Croatia and lived there until I was 16 years old (after the whole war things started) and my family ended up in Sweden as refugees. I see Sweden as my home (I lived there for 16 years too) and my family still lives there.

I met my husband 5 years ago and that is how I ended up living in North Carolina. My first trip to Michaels got me all hooked on cake decorating and I decided to make my first birthday cake for my mother-in-law lovely Momma June.

Trough cakes I have met some amazing, wonderful, strong and hard working women, I’m always amazed how we all have a different “life story” and how we can get to know people, without even meeting them in person and become great friends.

I started doing cakes 2 years ago but had to take a break for 10 months after my daughter was born.
Before I discovered cake, my big passion was cross stitching, decoupage and just basic DIY crafts. I’m proud to say I made most of the things for my daughters nursery and I will share some of the photos with you instead of more cake photos :)

I’m so happy to have met you all, you are a big inspiration, I love how we all teach each other,
and at the same time learn from each other too.

Selma, wow, so much I just learned… I’ve been though war too and I know exactly how it feels. And it’s odd how we feel our “second” country like home,, in your case Sweden, and now you have the US as well… I consider the US my “home” even though I am not there now. Michael’s, tell me about it, I am so jealous of you!!!
