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.

About Leigh

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.

    Light-hearted and interesting writing and your pictures are soooo mouth-watering; I can almost smell the oven-fresh smell of bread when I see your pictures :p

    Plus a very nice choice of theme. :)

    Hello, I did not want to contact you through commenting on your blog, however, I could not find another way to do so. I wanted to notify you that I recently saw someone using pictures of your as their own work. Since you are a professional baker and obviously work very hard, I thought that you would know that someone else is claiming your own as their own. If you provide me with an email address/some other way to contact you I will happily provide you with the information and websites of this other person. Take care!
