********************

How long have you been doing cakes and small design/art projects? 

Around 5-6 years.

How did you get into cakes?

I worked at Dairy as a cashier a few years ago and the other employees were always impressed with how well I wrote on the cakes etc since I wasn’t a decorator.  My sons grandmother mentioned that I might have a natural gift in decorating.  So I played around with it and what do ya know? It did turn out to be a God-given talent.

What is one thing YOU can’t do cakes without? 

Good inspiration!

What has been your most memorable experience from/while decorating and designing? 

Making my sons 7th birthday cake. It was an Avatar theme and I enjoyed making it so much. He was so exited about how much effort I put into it and how the tree on the cake lit up when we turned the light off.

Do you have any female role models that you look up to in, or out of, the industry/scene? 

Not sure at the moment, I’ll have to think about this one.

What is one piece of advice that you would give to females interested in decorating ? 

As for cakes, I say play around in the kitchen just like I did.  Don’t make it harder than what it really is. Watch videos, read books, take classes etc.  And as for designing, if interior design is something they’d like to pursue, go to college for it and then move to the south where you can really build a successful career in it.
