  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The customer sends me a basic inquiry then we work together to determine their preferences and how I could execute. Then I send a few pictures with the elements I would incorporate into their cake along with an invoice.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I started as a hobby baker and fell in love with Cake decorating. Soon after I started taking classes and eventually applied for a business license!
