I have had the pleasure and honor of creating hundreds of custom wedding, birthday and specialty cakes for more than 36 years. It seems I have always had a desire to learn how to decorate cakes. Since my childhood I have had an interest in drawing, painting and art in general. In college I majored in art and have found it has been useful in my cake decorating by freehand drawing and the use of color in all my designs. In 1978 I had an opportunity to take a class to learn the proper techniques in creating decorative cakes for all occasions. What began as a hobby for family and friends quickly grew into a part-time business.

Within a year of completing the cake decorating class, I was hired as a certified Wilton instructor and began teaching others for more than 9 years. In 2004 I had the opportunity to take the jump to become a full-time business when we built a small professional cake shop that is licensed with the State of Missouri.
