I have always been drawn to cakes, whether it be in a magazine or at a celebration. I couldn't wait to see what kind of decorated cake there would be at the party. Forget about the present opening or the Bride's dress... I wanted to check out the CAKE!
When the opportunity came for me to take a few classes at a local craft store I was super excited! Until they tried to teach me how to make a buttercream rose...FAIL. The instructor taught us how to make it with a gum drop as a base, to this day I cannot make a rose without a candy center ( I suppose we all have our burdens lol) But that didn't stop me from continuing on to the fondant course.
FELL IN LOVE!
Granted I didn't even cover a cake with fondant in that class, the same instructor used my cake and fondant as the example cake and she covered it!! oh well... I knew it was for me.
Fast forward about 7 years later, two moves across country, a million internet searches and over a billion YouTube tutorials later, I finally realized this is what I was meant to do. I love the creativity that consumes me when I am creating a cake.
I currently work as a Banker by day and a Baker at night. Its a busy life, but I am enjoying the challenge.
