I am a mom of 5 children ages 28, 25, 20,15, and 14. One girl (she is the oldest) and 4 boys. I have 2 grandchildren ages 4 and 1. My sweet husband is Ty and he is so supportive of my cake craziness. He even has cleaned up my whirlwind of a mess after a cake while I am delivering or in the hot bath (love that man). I am truly blessed.
I have been in nursing, made jewelry and clothes, made furniture, made turned wooden pens on a mini lathe, made stained glass, made quilts and purses, all sorts of craft stuff, and now cakes.
My cake adventure has really been on going for 20 years. I made my kids birthday cakes and had been told several time “you need to do this for a living”, and each time I was like no way I have 5 kids and no time for that, plus I didn’t think they were that great anyway.
My first cake for outside the family was a few years ago for a baby shower at church and people went crazy about it (trust me it was not that great), then a pig for our church BBQ. That is when a friend called me and asked for a fire truck. Of course I said sure even though I didn’t know what I was doing, so I searched the internet for everything about cakes and an obsession was born. I even made a small figure of a fireman and dog.
I loved everything I saw and wanted to learn more. I am self taught and have learned a lot from you tube videos.
My cake name came from when I was making jewelry and my name was ObsesShan Designs, so I just added the Sweet and there you have Sweet ObsesShan. I still have some of that jewelry from 25 years ago, oh the 80’s, hahaha.
I love all my new cake friends, you guys are the best. So supportive and just when I think this is it I am done with cakes and one has given me fits, you guys build me up with all of your sweet comments and compliments. It is pretty crazy how everyone rallies together for a common love, “cake”. I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful cake adventure.
Have blessed cake adventures.
Love you guys to pieces,
