The journey that has brought me here...

I absolutely love baking. I not only love making cakes and decorating them, but I love trying challenging recipes. I dream of one day taking classes that would allow me to better hone my skills, but for now I'll have to settle for what I can learn through local classes at the arts and craft stores as well as what I can teach myself.

I started seriously baking within the past ten years. I was a dorm parent who had to care for over 36 girls in a residence and needed something to pass the time. So, we baked. Sometimes we did it together, at other times I would prepare desserts for our movie nights. In any case, I was hooked.

Now, years later, I bake for my family and friends. I am currently taking a class that has already given me some better insight into the craft. I can't believe how much I have already learned!

I invite you to look on the site and find a cake that inspires you. Let me know if you would like something more customized or choose the one that you happen to like. We can work together from there to put together the perfect cake for you.

Thank you for visiting my site and I look forward to working with you.
