All About Me

I own a custom cake business in Richmond, KY. I have no formal training in pastry arts, but I do have a B.A. in Interior Design & a minor in Art Studio. After difficulty finding a Star Wars cake for my kids' birthday, I decided to start decorating cakes. I saw a baker on a cake show say that if you had a background in art, you could decorate cakes. So, I thought "why not?". And, of course, it helped that I'm pretty good in the kitchen! So, I made a cake for a bridal shower that I hosted for a friend that turned out really cute. A few months later my sister got married & I (being extremely terrified!) did a cake for the small event. I put a photo of it on Facebook & received a lot of encouragement from a former classmate that is a chef. A month later, I did a birthday cake for a friend's daughter. The next thing I knew, I was hearing from another former classmate that owned an event planning business. Apparently, there was a huge need for great, affordable cakes in my area. I finished the year out by doing a few birthdays & 4 weddings. My business was born! That was in 2009 & since then my business has exploded. I've done several bridal shows & stay booked up all of the time. It's amazing how God can take a desire to make people happy with something as simple as a cake & turn it into a successful business. When I'm not making cakes, I'm enjoying my fabulous family - my hubby & 3 awesome kids.
