In July 2011, my son looked at me with his big blue eyes and asked me to make him a Lightening McQueen cake for his birthday. Up until then, I had only baked out of a box, I had never heard of fondant, and I had to ask someone what confectioners sugar was!! So what did I do? I googled, and googled, AND googled! I found some great tutorials and I was off! After 21 hours of baking, coloring fondant, and decorating, I finally finished my first cake! I couldn’t wait to see Keaton’s reaction, it alone made every minute worth it! I posted the cake on Facebook and the next thing you know, I had orders. Now here I am a TLC and Food Network Cake artist, learning one cake at a time, doing the job of my dreams and loving every second of it!!
