Homespun birthday cakes were always a marvelous treat growing up. My mother would learn new recipes and baking techniques in the best culinary and baking schools at home, and I would curiously tag along, watching, enjoying, and learning. Little did I know that this, too, would be a personal pursuit of mine one day. What started as a hobby making pastries, cakes, and goodies for friends and family gatherings, eventually blossomed into a passion.
Working in child care inspired me further to create baked delights for children. At first, cake designs of Disney and Nickelodeon characters as well as sports themes consumed me. Now, my repertoire has evolved and diversified as a result of experimenting and learning with the Wilton decorating class.
