whoehoe!!!! this morning I recieved a message on my facebook page from a cakefriend of mine that I was featured on cakecentral in the Top 25 Most Popular Cake Makers in 2011 at the 13th place!!! wow! who was expecting that? I for real wasn't! but I was absolutely flabbergasted and also very proud.
I'm just a hairdresser from holland and I do cakedecoration for a hobby in my spare free time. I have a husband and two sons who give me lots of freedom to play with sugar as I would like to call my cakedecorating hobby. there are so many talented cakedecorators all over the world and all their beautiful pictures of their cakes give me the inspiration for mine. so I want to give special thanks to all of you who post the pictures of your cakes on the internet. I believe that lots of you deserve to be in that list. so I would like to share my 13th place with you all, you deserve it!!!!

You so deserve to be on this list icon_smile.gif Your cakes are absolutely amazing, and I especially love the work you do with white/black/gray - SO beautifully metallic looking and so exquisitely detailed and lovely. You say you're "just a hair dresser" - I say you're a natural born cake decorator making a living as a hair dresser thumbs_up.gif I love your work, so enjoy ending up on this list and congratulations with all my heart. I hope some day to be even half as good as you with my cakes!

Your work is every bit...if not MORE...beautiful than some of the cake competitors I see on TV. You need to enter contests and/or do this full time. You have a gift. If you cut hair half as good as you decorate, it would be worth it to fly from the US to get my hair cut by you! Great work!

I got an email this morning saying I was one of the top 25 posters for last year, which completely shocked me. I was thinking, I need to get out more. But then I would miss CC LOL !

I got the same email and the same thoughts went through my head as well, lol!

I doublechecked the rulebook and I couldnt find anywhere where it states that 1 person isnt allowed to do fabulous hair AND wonderful cakes lol...your cakes are beautiful, you deserve the recognition. I love your design aesthetic!

MarianInFL Posted 4 Jan 2012 , 4:23am

You're cakes are amazing. I have a bunch of them in my favorites-not because I want to copy them (I can only imagine making cakes that gorgeous), but because I just like to look at beautiful cakes. I especially like when you carve the top. It's so unique.

kwebbeltje Posted 4 Jan 2012 , 9:20am

this morning I recieved an email for the top 25 of 2010. so I open the link and wauw!!! I was completely fallen of my chair. I was staring at my own picture on the firtst place!!!! whoehoooooo. whahahha so I became worse a year later whahhaha no, that's not the way I see it. I had a troubled an sick year. and it was my choise to create a lot less cakes so I have more time for my family and I wil continue that because it feels right like this. I have no problema at all to give up my first place to Aldoska. I have serveral cakes of her in my favs also icon_biggrin.gif I'm stunned I was even mentioned in those lists icon_redface.gif, thank you all!!!

Hello Brenda,
I think your work is amazing and I hope one day to be as good as you! As I live nearby, I was wondering if you give courses/workshops?

thank You Sue, do you speak dutch? I'm much better at Dutch icon_biggrin.gif

Suetje Posted 4 Jan 2012 , 8:06pm

Yes I can speak Dutch, but understand it much better!! Writing Dutch I find more difficult!

Annabakescakes Posted 5 Jan 2012 , 1:17am

After reading this yesterday. I had to save more than a dozen of your cakes! I am more a forum junkie, and had missed seeing them, but I righted that wrong icon_smile.gif CC was so slow it took an hour!! And am I the only one that really wishes you could flip through an album with out having to go to the thumb nails every time? Irksome!

kakeladi Posted 5 Jan 2012 , 2:08am

Add my WOWs to all the others. Your work is awesome and deserves the kudos.

Add me to that list. I was totally UNprepared for such recognition.

gscout73 Posted 5 Jan 2012 , 5:39am

Your cakes are so beautiful and flawless. I would love to do work like yours. You are an inspiration.

scp1127 Posted 5 Jan 2012 , 8:54am

Please take this a a compliment, but I have not saved any of your cakes. Not in a few lifetimes could I do anything close to your talent. I look and admire, but I tend to save the ones I could actually possibly make.
