They Used to Call Me the Cake Lady

I was cleaning up some files on my computer and ran across some photos of my previous passion - cake decorating - so I thought it might be fun to share some of my creations with you. I actually used to do cakes as a sideline when I "had a real job" and more time on my hands! Wedding cakes, birthday cakes, retirement cakes - and my claim to fame (at least partly) was that I could come up with decorations that were unique and completely edible (almost always!)

So, here are a few of my creations - not necessarily my best ones - it appears that I must have misplaced a file folder or two on my computer, but these are examples of some of the fun you can have with cake decorating with a little bit of imagination, some frosting and maybe some rice paper or rice krispies! Enjoy! (If you click on the photos, it should take you to a larger size!)

Your cakes are wonderful! I've always wanted to learn how to decorate cakes! I worked in a bakery in high school & some of college so know how to make roses but that's about it. You've just renewed my desire to learn!

I still do cakes for family occasions and close friends - in fact a few of these cakes, like the baptism cake, the Nemo cake and the Diego cake were all for my grandson and the "burgers on the grill" and the drum set cake were for my oldest son. Considering I've never had a lesson, I think I do okay :) The year I made the burgers cake, my oldest granddaughter, who was just shy of 3 at the time was trying to figure out why Gramma put hamburgers on a cake, and even tho I told her they were really rice krispie treats and that the "cheese" was just fondant candy, she refused to eat cake made out of meat and cheese!
