I feel like Hello Kitty is practically a rite of passage for any little girl. So when my niece turned 1 last year, my cousin and I decided she needed to start her Hello Kitty obsession early. One of the best things about Hello Kitty? It’s SO easy to find themed accessories, and even cutters Read More …

How do you brand your business when you are on a limited budget?

In my former life (the life I had prior to cake) I worked in marketing and spent a lot of time in the print production side of things. I’ve worked on small projects like business cards and flyers to bigger projects like custom display stands, with metal and plastic fabrication. When you work for a Read More …

When I first started creating 3D and structural cakes, I used to just guess as I created each project because I didn’t know any better and had really bad time management skills. I used to start at the last minute and was under so much pressure to finish on time that I would just ‘wing Read More …

Sometimes you just have to try something different

I’m always in a bit of a weird mood before something major happens with my business. The launch of my Craftsy classes, the first overseas teaching trip, my first book… All those major moments kind of leave me in that state of panic and calm at the same time.

To teach or not to teach?

During the last year I’ve been dabbling in a few different hobbies and self-improvement courses. Honestly, it’s been so refreshing being a student again and going to a class that is not cake related.
