|All About Me
||I've worked for 9 years in the teaching profession and at the moment I'm taking a few years off being a full time Mom to an 8 year old and a toddler. I'm extremely passionate when it comes to teaching and I've really enjoyed my time in the classroom. But, I recently discovered a new passion for baking and decorating cakes. It all started a year ago, when I decided to make my husband his birthday cake and with minimal baking experience, I attempted to ice the cake with poured fondant. Unsurprisingly, I failed miserably, to the point that in order to slice the cake, I had to first use a heat gun to melt the hard piece of icing. Since then, I've become almost obsessed with learning how to decorate cakes as clean and beautiful as possible. I have learned so much from the internet and a couple of books that I purchased. The road since that initial experience has been bumpy, but I have also managed to successfully execute some tricky aspects of baking and decorating. I can't wait to continue my learning journey in this field!
