incredible use of icing I have found to use. I used to paint with acrylic on canvas and try to sell my art work in coffee shops in Australia. I have found that my new form of edible art sells much better. I get to design exactly what the customer wants, and even fine tune it better than they could even imagine. So, all to say - - I am having the time of my life discovering my new found cake creating ability. I would love to open up my own cake shop one day! That would be absolutely exciting!!!

What a grand and beautiful month! The crab apple trees were in full bloom on the weekend of our family reunion as we got together to celebrate my grandfather's 85 wonderful years on this earth before entering the gates of heaven. I created a piano cake for my grandfather's memorial service as he was an amazing pianist.
What a beautiful month, watching the flowers bloom and the rain cover the earth as everything turns green and colorful once again. I enjoyed baking 350 cupcakes for a rodeo banquet. I also got to design a number of beautiful custom cakes. I have learned so much about the use of fondant as well. It is a great challenge and I am still learning more about creating that perfect cake.

Happy Spring!! For the Easter Celebration I made a gorgeous fresh vanilla bean Madeira Cross cake covered in handmade roses that I created out of white and dark molding chocolate. 65 handmade leaves decorate every edge of the cake. This cake took days of preparation and turned out divine. It has a Ganache icing over a layer of apricot glaze.
