I am not a cook. I wouldn't even go as far as saying I'm a baker, but I actually enjoy (look forward to) that one. I think it's the artistic side of it. I really just love the decorating. And now that I'm learning more, I like to carve and build a cake, too! I have always liked to decorate cupcakes with all their tiny details.
Well, last fall, a friend at work told me about this awesome group, called For Goodness Cakes, who bake cakes for kids in foster care and in shelters. It was around this time I was starting to see the effects of the cakes on my body :/ and couldn't give up a chance to be able to bake all I want and not gain an ounce, especially when it is for such a good cause. (You all know the batter on the spatula is calorie-free, right?)
My first assigned cake
Since then, I have taken a few cake classes and started selling cakes, too. I'm really enjoying it! B will tell you I'm obsessed. I love looking at blogs and books and coming up with new designs. I have way too many ideas to ever complete them all, but I will try!
Well, I need to check on my cake! My house has been smelling gooood....
