Artistically Speaking: Cake Decoration


I started making plans cakes when I was four years old/ my mom was crazy health food cook and she
would not make cake for my dad and would not make cake, and I got a easy-bake oven when I was
four years old and I baked cakes like crazy for my dad. but is only a mess couple years ago But it’s only the past couple of years or so that I decided to make my cakes pretty. I’m I am a cake artist about two years
ago I decided I was going to do my bucket
list things cake decorating class so I took it at amarillo college through cakes and more and just fell in love with doing it. One birthday cake a month to stay in practice and as it us, I make three or four cakes a weekend now. I do cakes all of the time this is where I
come to relax and it surprised me that I actually had a
creative side, I never thought I was artistic and both of my kids are pretty artistic and I was like “where did you get that from?” it’s just jumping in there and doing it and is just the sheer volume and I don’t generally say no to any interesting request any more than the
modeling was the hardest part like actually making figures and going “You know what, I can do that, that’s not impossible.” and jumping in there and going “Yeah, I’m pretty sure I can work with that.” It is art because it is something completely original nobody
is telling me how to do with it all I think the classes I enjoyed the
classes but I found that they’re like this is the one way to make a rose, this
is the one way to frost a cake or you can do it otherways, and I was like “no, I want to do it this way.” the main thing is don’t be afraid to jump in and get started. and you don’t be afraid to make a mess. I have found inside me a lot of artistry I didn’t know I had, just the creativity and the ability to make something like, people are like “I’ve never seen a cake like that.” that’s the idea, it’s meant to be something completely original Kid cakes are so fun because kids get so ridiculously excited they’re like oh my
gosh it’s my favorite thing. So that is a whole lot of fun.
