I create works of art out of cake. Yeah, just like those guys on television. And I want to be on Food Network someday, doing the same! The difference for me is that I'm not a classically trained pastry chef. Mostly self-taught with a few encounters with the experts. Lots of trial and error (sometimes errors are easier to swallow when they are edible, lol!). Just like I do with my hairdressers, I love to jump from one talented person to the other... picking up skills and inspiration out of cook books, art, daily life, stretching out in down dog and at the bottom of my cup of Starbucks or pint of Blue Moon.
This isn't your grandmother's wedding cake site! I don't even know how to make a rose out of buttercream and I'm not baking that Duncan Hines box mix! The teachers at the Wilton Cake Design school would slap my hands and kick me out. I love the use of color and unique designs. Well done tattoos rock, but my husband won't go for the cake tattoo! I wear black and white almost every day paint my toe nails red. I love flowers. I get bored with projects easily, so I won't do the same thing twice.
I am passionate about following dreams & taking advantage of your skills. I want to teach people the tools to use to do what I do. I want to foster relationships and build a community of cake artists. I want to have fun doing what I love and make money doing it, lots of it!
