When I started baking I hadn’t really expected to be taking orders, making birthday cakes, and character themed cupcakes. I really just started doing what I love and experimenting and letting my friends and coworkers be my taste testers! Turns out, I have found my recipes. It’s like they are a part of me now, it’s MY vanilla cake recipe and it defines me as a baker and small business owner!
Finding and creating good recipes was the easy part, and I am never concerned whether people will love the taste of my cakes because well, they’re delicious. No, it’s the decor that stresses me out. I haven’t taken any classes, all I have are tutorials and photographs to learn from and it’s no easy task. I’ve come a long way from day one (only a few months ago) and am so excited to look back in a few years and see this learning experience grow!
I wanted to share with you some of my recent cakes, they have each brought challenges, and some disappointment (perfectionist, maybe.) but at the end of the day my customers loved them, and that’s what matters most! We are our own biggest critic, so remember that when you’re doing what ever it is that makes you as happy as baking makes me.
