About this blog
I’m a professional cake decorator who can’t bake–so I’m embarking on a quest to learn how! Follow me as I learn the art of measuring and mixing, and feel free to laugh at all the mistakes I make along the way.

I’m a recent college graduate with a degree in anthropology and Spanish. I love language and hope to work for a nonprofit someday.
Cake decorating began as a hobby for me but grew into a passion and a profession when I was hired by a bakery near my town, a suburb of Chicago.
My less lucrative hobbies include poetry, knitting, nail-painting, and being a diehard Lady Gaga fan.
I have a pair of dogs I couldn’t live without:
Jack Rabbit, a westie, and Moxie, a cairn terrier.
