I have always loved making and decorating cakes. I started when I was a teenager. I have now turned my hobby into a business. Its early days but things are going well so far :)

I quite enjoy decorating cakes as well! I am not sure if I am any good at doing it but I always put my heart in to decorating the cakes I am decorating.. So I suppose that is all that truly matters! I love purchasing different shaped cake pans whenever I can. The reason for this is because I know that I love decorating cakes for special occasions. When a certain holiday rolls around I tend to always try to find cake pans that match the message I am trying to convey. Or I love using a cake pan that goes well with the holiday/special occasion. For example just today I ended up making a cake in to a heart as I was wanting to make my other half a Valentine's Day cake. I ended up starting off with white icing & then I mixed it with a little bit of red. And got a mix between a pink, as well as red icing. It went well with the shape of the cake. And I ended up using cinnamon hearts to outline the cake, or at least so that the cake would have a border. I then ended up putting some chocolate shaped heart candies in the middle as well. And I used the icing to write out "I love you" on it, among a few other words. I find decorating cakes to be a lot of fun. The only thing is I am always worrying if I am going to ruin it by accident. I'd love to learn more about how to decorate cakes just so I could learn some new techniques when I am decorating my own personal cakes. I know that I love to make, as well as decorate my own cakes when it comes to someone's birthday. I love being able to add my own personal touch. And seeing the expression on someone's face afterwards since they know that I made, as well as decorated that cake with love. I've always wanted to learn how to create flowers when decorating a cake. I always see it being done by someone when it comes to decorating a cake but I've never honestly been able to do it myself.. I've always wanted to learn & hope that someday in the future I will have the ability to do so. I also love being able to come up with themes before decorating a cake that I had made. I love finding out what someone's interests are & then creating a cake that I know they will end up loving.. I love being a little creative when doing so.. And then having the end results be something the people you care for or the person you love being able to remember what you had made for them years from now. I want to I guess you could say leave an everlasting impression when I make as well as decorate a cake for the person whom I love. I think that's the most rewarding feeling in the long run is knowing you had made someone's day just by simply being creative by decorating a cake just for them. In conclusion.. As you can see.. I quite enjoy decorating cakes for the people whom I love. I honestly will only decorate or bake a cake for the people whom I love though as well I must add because of the fact that.. I know that if one line or decoration on the cake isn't 'perfect' that they will still cherish what I had made for them! . . Thanks for allowing me to share! xx

I love to bake and I recently started it. I've baked three cakes till now, on my hubby's bday, our anniversary and for a friend's bday. I love to decorate too but don't know much about it and since I'm starting only now its a little difficult. I love to watch shows on baking and cake decorating.
