I've taken the plunge...

It was about 10 months ago that i made a few cakes for Mamatulip's daughter Julia. After making these cakes i pondered whether I should start up my own little cake decorating business. I gave it a lot of thought, but wasn't sure how i'd get started so the idea kinda floundered.

I've made cupcakes for the kids preschool class a few times, and the moms always rave about them. We were discussing cakes and I said how i make my own cake batter, icing and i decorate cakes for my kiddos. One of the moms asked if i would be interested in making a cake for her son's birthday, and i jumped at the offer. So tonight i mixed up the cake, whipped up a batch of icing, tinted it the appropriate colors and decorated with all the proper tips. Do you think i did a good job?? Should i put myself out there and start up a business?? And what do you think cakes like this would be worth??


Here are some other cakes i've made for my own kiddos over the years....

Ok, that is damn impressive. The most creative cake I ever made was a tombstone for Halloween. Not very creative though since they're generally square. Your cakes look beautiful and yummy!
