I simply got tired of buying the plastic-tasting, cookie-cutter cakes offered at the big chain stores’ bakeries. I knew I could bake a better cake, hands-down. But I’ve always been extremely artistic, and so I thought, “Wouldn't it be cool if I could make a really amazing-looking, unique cake that looked even better than the ones you buy at the big bakeries?” And that was that!
I challenged myself, and being the competitive person I am, I accepted my own challenge. However, I had never done anything more than frost my homemade cakes with frosting from a can. I had no idea where to begin as far as cake decorating. So, I started scouring the Internet for frosting recipes, techniques, tips, tools and ideas. YouTube was (and still is) one of my greatest teachers… there are so many videos out there that show you exactly what to do, and that’s how I learn best. If I can see it, I can do it!
Anyway, my first cake was a My Little Pony cake I made for my Niece’s 4th birthday in 2009. I’ve been decorating cakes ever since, and gaining a little reputation for myself along the way. I’m finally starting to branch out and do cakes for people outside of my immediate circle of family and friends, and it is so very exciting! I’ll probably never be rich and famous, but that’s not what I want! I do want to make a living at decorating fancy cakes because it is definitely one of my passions in life… I simply love turning cake and frosting into custom designed works of art that are as unique and beautiful as the people who have asked me to create them!
Recently, I’ve had the opportunity to try my hand at some three-dimensional (3D) sculpted cakes, which come out looking so cool that even I’m impressed with myself! I’ve done buildings, cars, castles, baby bottoms, guitars, national monuments, characters from movies, along with numerous other sculpted figures and objects that can either be the whole cake or be used as cake toppers or accessories. I’d say I’ve definitely found my niche! You show me a picture of something you love, and I will turn it into a cake!
We are Fancy That Cake … a cake TRULY as unique as you are!
That’s all, folks! Thanks for stopping by!
