Graduation 2014

May 16, 2014 I graduated from Baking and Decorative Arts Program at MATC!!!!!!! And of course no one could make my graduation cake besides me!! 

I wanted to make a cake that showed what I went to school for, along with my passion...decorating cakes!! So I made a white cake, filled and frosted with buttercream, with gumpaste gebera daisy (one techniques we learned in school) along with a pastry bag, recipe card, a twisted loaf of bread, and a apron, with of course my favorite color AQUA!!! 

I made the cake look more elegant, because I want to get more into wedding cakes then the basic celebration cake. 

Hats of to me!!!!!

WKOW 27 News-Icing Smiles

I am a Sugar Angel, and a Development Representative for Icing Smiles ( an organization that donates cakes to ill children and their siblings, for more information) and I was asked to talk about Icing Smiles and what we do to the public, on the NEWS!! 

Icing Smiles recently donated their 5,000 cake this past Mother's Day of 2014, and because of that 5,000 cake we wanted to spread the word about Icing Smiles, and share our story and what Icing Smiles does. 

If you want to know more information about Icing Smiles, be a baker, donor, partner, or want to help out in any way, visit Icing Smiles website at, or you can contact me at,

School Final Cake

My final for school, Baking and Decorative Arts Program, we were given the theme, "birthday" for our final cake. I really wanted to have a all white cake with color from the flowers to lighten up my cake. So I came up with the theme, "Elegant Birthday". But when I drew up my sketch it looked too much like a wedding cake, so I decided to add a candle to bring, "birthday" to my cake!

And my cake next to my sketch.....Looks pretty close to what I visioned.

When we were finished designing our cake, we took it out to the school's cafeteria and sold our cake by the slice for $1 or the whole cake for $40.

And my cake was the first to sell out!!! 

The flavors were, the bottom tier was a chocolate cake with raspberry filling, and the top was one layer yellow, and one layer chocolate cake with raspberry filling. YUMMMMMMM!!
