About Me

Jen & Brett

At a Cards game on our '09 family vacation.

I am Jennifer, a stay-at-home mom of two wonderful little boys, Brenden-9, and Will-2, and of course my hunk of a husband Brett.  I know this blog is supposed to be about cakes and what I put into them and get out of them, but there’s not a chance I could possibly write about caking without mentioning my three boys.

My first cake was a baseball cake for my oldest son’s, Brenden, 8th birthday in 2008.  After I made his cake I decided it would be a fun thing to learn how to actually do.  At the end of July I took a Wilton I class and by August I was hooked.  I loved all things buttercream!  Shortly after I found a fantastic website called Cake Central where I began to learn there is more to cake than just buttercream and star tips.  Since then I have been slowly teaching myself new techniques and trying new recipes whenever I can.

I’ve figured out that I am actually pretty good at some of this considering I haven’t had all that much experience, so with this blog I have committed myself to trying one new technique or recipe each week so that I can learn as much as I possibly can.  One day I would love to own and operate my own speciality cake shop.  Until then I will keep on caking and hopefully I can inspire someone else to find their passion (even if it has nothing to do with cake).
