Hi there! My name is Leigh, and I’m a cake decorator who can’t bake.
While I can fill, frost, and festoon a cake or cupcake to perfection, I’ve always relied on other people to make those cakes and cupcakes for me first. I’ve decided that this needs to change–who wants to be a one-trick pony?
The thing is, I’ve almost never baked anything from scratch before. I’ve always been a big fan of cake mixes and pre-made pie crusts. But as everyone knows, no cake made from a mix can compare to one made lovingly by hand, from the first step to the last. From now on, I’d like to be able to say that I put as much thought, time, and skill into making desserts as I put into decorating them.
So, that’s my mission. Check back often to see how I’m doing! I’m bound to make a few (dozen) mistakes along the way, and I’m always open to advice, critiques, and people to join me in laughing at myself. Keep me company as I progress from a clueless amateur to–fingers crossed–a baker extraordinaire!
