All About Me

I am a Gold Star Mother who turned to decorating cakes and cookies out of my grief over losing my son, LCpl Daniel Gabriel Raney on July 9, 2010 in Marjah, Afghanistan. I hope to honor Gabe through designing cookies and cakes for Heroes, our Veterans who have kept this country safe and FREE, our Police and Firefighters or Anyone who puts their life on the line for our safety. I also honor our Littlest Heroes, children who keep us adults going ~ I love patriotic themes, as well as flowers, figurines, gumpaste, fondant and buttercream, but I'm still trying to perfect my Royal Icing! I teach the children in the neighborhood to design and decorate their own cookies, and am even known to take my decorating tools to the beach and give out tons of treats to neighboring vacationers! It is more than a hobby. It helps me heal, and it helps me to honor my Son, Gabe, and all our HEROES, and I am grateful for that ~

Occupation
