I am not a perfectionist. It took me many years and two children to learn this nugget of information. Now that I know, I truly live differently; more freely.

I am not ultimately creative. I steal others' ideas and make them my own. Creating from scratch makes me stressed, headachey and grouchy.

I am not a great chef or baker. I am only now learning to roast a chicken and bake chocolate chip cookies that will be eaten by actual humans.

However, it is a little known fact that I love making cakes. I started 3 years ago when a playgroup friend needed a cake and our actual cake-making-super-creative friend was unavailable. She told me how to do it and wha-la: a Caterpillar. From there, I made cakes for friends' kids and my kids and baby showers, etc.

Today, I'm embarking on an ambitious endeavor of actually charging real money for my creations (that are by no means perfect or ultimately creative; although it is certainly my goal!). I'm raising money for the Susan G. Koman 3-day for the Cure breast cancer walk. (I'm also walking the 3-day in September. More on that later)

Please consider supporting and getting a cute cake too! What kind of party are you having? What cake design do you want?

Happy 3rd Birthday Dean!!

This was my first attempt at making a cake I've already made before. I'm not super thrilled with how it turned out, but thankfully Dean loved it! He chose the writing and picked up the cake himself!
I learned a lesson in taking on too many projects in one weekend. EEK!!

  1. Great cake! I am friends with Deans mommy and I did the 3 day a couple years ago. Please feel free to ask my any questions, it was QUIT and experience. Good luck on your very creative way to earn money for it!
