How did I get interested in cake ?
Hmmmm....well, there are a few different paths that led me here.
I have always enjoyed baking...I believe that came from my great grandmother on my mom's side. She catered out of her home and made beautiful amazing wedding cakes in a tiny little kitchen in her little home. I seem to be following her footsteps as I make my cakes in my tiny little kitchen, then do all of my decorating and stacking and finishing on my huge dining room table that my grandfather made, oh more than 70 years ago.
I really got into "caking" when my kids were little. I always wanted them to have a great birthday cake to celebrate the most important days of my life. I just really wanted them to know that I would always go all out for them because they are truly the loves of my life.
The older they got, the more challenging the design, so I needed to find different directions. That's where the interest in fondant and gum paste came to play.
I try to make each cake unique to the person for whom I am making it.
I do just love what I do, and I simply make cake! How great is that!?!
