Hello all,

After reading many blogs (especially Baristabrat - I love her!) I've decided that now is the time to start my own. I'm in the middle of this whirlwind of discovering my passion for baking and attempting to get started applying for baking schools, begin plans for my own business, etc. and I figured a blog would be the best way to chronicle my successes (and failures of course). I haven't had much experience baking, except all the stuff I would make when I was younger at home and my year at the bakery on campus. I love my job, and that's saying something when I have to wake up at 4:30am to get there on time! Here are some of the cakes I've made so far (don't judge me - I'm a beginner):

This is my second official cake - I made it for my dad's 50th birthday. It's supposed to be three graves (the one in the middle is empty).

This is a camera cake I made for one of my co-workers birthdays. He's really into photography, so I attempted a Nikon...and I successfully made it look like a camera from 1993 lol.

I'm really excited to write about my adventures in baking! My next cake is going to be for my friend/roommate Noelle's 21st birthday...and I'm using fondant FOR THE FIRST TIME! Wish me luck! Also, since I'm broke, for Christmas I'm going to make family and friends a cookbook with all my favorite recipes (except ones I'm using in my bakery). The first recipe is going to be for this yummy mushroom lasagna I made the other night...oh my god it was so good! I love Barefoot Contessa, she makes the yummiest things. Anyways, so that's that - I'll be back!
