Finding time to balance my bliss :)

I haven't posted in more than 6 months... probably because the one follower I have is also one of my best girlfriends and there isn't much I could say that she doesn't already know, but, just in case there are some other people reading that aren't following I'll update...

Everyone knows that I love all things birthday, the parties, the planning and especially the cake! I have agonized over so many birthday cakes, making sure that they are exactly what I want for each and every party... and I pay top dollar for them too... if John knew what I actually spent on a birthday cake he'd have a heart attack.
A few months ago, right around Kaden's 5th birthday, another great friend told me she would teach me how to do it myself... my first thought "Yeah right, I can't do this..." But she prodded me and we gave it a go, together, and as it turned out we were both pretty good at it. We took some classes and attempted to make our business out of it, unfortunately, it's impossible to get licensed in the state of Florida if you don't have a special kitchen just for selling cakes, then she had to go back to work full time so our fun cake baking days came to a (hopefully temporary) end. Nevertheless, I still love decorating cakes! It's something that makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something, as Oprah says, it's my bliss... and best of all, I won't ever have to pay for another cake again! So, if you want a cute birthday, shower or anything cake give me a call...
Here are a few cakes that I have made over the last few months, and a couple that Michelle and I made together.

  1. Those are beautiful cakes! My mother took cake decorating classes from Wilton and my daughter is majoring in culinary arts in college. I hope someday you're able to have your dream of making a business of this!
