Welcome to my first post! Can you tell how excited I am?

I wanted to share with you guys how I got started and what this journey has looked like for me . . . so far! I still have so much to learn and so many cake projects I’m dreaming of – so stay tuned. 🙂

I think that baking runs in the genes, and that I can attribute my love for cakes to my mom. She, too, knows her share of cake decorating. She really helped me get started and has been  a big encouragement in all of this!

I developed a strong(er) love for baking when Pinterest entered the scene and changed every woman’s life (Can I get an Amen?). I lead a women’s Bible study every week, and I thought – what better way to welcome new people into my home, than to have fresh baked goods? Hence, that was my launching pad into more baking.

This past summer, I wanted to make my own birthday cake because, well, I knew exactly what kind of cake I wanted (and might be a control freak occasionally). I ended up making two cakes, and decided to try out I Am Baker‘s Rose cake and Frilly Cake – after all, she made it look so easy to decorate.

A few weeks later, we had a baby shower at work for one of the surgeons, and I volunteered to make a cake.

She loved the cake, and mentioned to me, “You really should sell these.” I was pretty resistant at first, but she planted that idea in my head well! After only a few days, I decided that I would try out cake decorating and selling . . . and that’s where my journey began.

Since then, I have taken some amazing online classes via Craftsy, bought an entire cabinet full of tools, and haven’t looked back!
