Alright, I know this is kinda odd... but I have decided that I am not learning anything new at my job, and I need to move on. I would like to go to Hawaii first, and work my way to LA.. but I have no issues hitting anywhere else. Soo... if anyone has a shop, and is willing to give work to a pretty skilled decorator, who has huge potential and is completely unafraid to try anything new I'm your girl. I'm slightly crazy, tattooed from neck to foot.. and draw in a lot of attention. (Think Kat Von D with cake) If you want to see more samples of my work, I am more than willing to send them.


(and if you have any leads, hook me up!)

Also check in the back of ACD. They post job openings in the classified section there. Also check in Craigslist.

If I had a shop, I'd hire you in a minute. You can do old-school - that would be important to me. Tats don't bother me - boehmes are free-thinkers, and that's what makes an artist unique.

Unfortunatly I don't have any formal training (Was trained as a makeup artist before finding cake)... just strictly self taught.. I know that puts me at a huge disadvantage... and it kinds sucks.. but hopefully it won't hold me back. For someone that has been working in a production based environment for 2 years, and only been doing the fun stuff on the special occasion (I do have quite a following at my store) I'm pretty badass and modest too. I do work super fast, I can produce a wedding cake in a little over an hour...
I have never worked with pastry.. though given a chance I could learn it quickly.
