Never in a millions year would I had thought that I would be making designer cakes. It just kind of happened...

The year was 2009, and I was preparing to throw my daughter's 1st birthday party. Things were a little stressful, well to be honest, very stressful! I was working a full time job, parenting a soon to be one year old and planning a birthday party all by myself for the very first time. I was very tired and overwhelmed. However, for some reason, through it all I had a determined feeling that I needed to make her cake...not buy it. So I sucked it all up, put on my big girl pants and got to work.

After much work, this was the result

Everyone was impressed, including myself. I soon received an order from a co-worker asking to make a cake for her daughter's birthday that October.

You would never guess how much I charged for my first cake...$35...yes that was it. I had a lot to learn about the cake world for sure.

After that I thought it would be a good idea to try my hand at fondant to make my mom a birthday cake that December. Looking back, that was nothing but the Lord slowly birthing something new in me.
