The Great Leaning Tower of Cake
What I thought was originally a good idea...a cupcake, sitting on top of the cake itself, candle and all. Except I didn't take in account how heavy the frosting on the cupcake would be...
For future reference: Not a good idea. The client insisted that no one noticed. She's a liar, but I love her anyway.
Yes, yes I know it's "flower". A little baking pun there ...ahem. Anyway, I am a stay at home mom of three children; a four year old, a six year old and a nine year old. "Peeling an orange with a screwdriver" is where I go to ponder life in general. Things like parenting and marriage, kids, dealing with depression and bipolar, the angst of writer's block and the freedom of a good book. Toilet scrubbing and laundry. I might throw in a photo or two, some art, a poem.
"Sugar Weave" is strictly about cake. Always a voracious baker (and eater) of cakes, I recently fell head first into cake decorating. I made birthday cakes for my three children and people kept telling me I could charge for my creations. So I decided to give it a go.
