I’m a third generation baker, with a full-time job, three amazing children, and a fantastic husband, which I adore and love deeply. For as long as I can remember I have dreamed of running my own bakery business. I even remember sitting in class thinking up names for my bakery when I was in high school. Before I knew it life took over and before I realized it several years had passed and I was still just dreaming my dream. I mean I have always been a baker and a party planner but I never took the steps to realize my dream of becoming a professional. I always felt a bit of a void and wondered if I had what it took to carve out my niche and realize my dream.
Then one day my sister suggested that I stop dreaming and actually “give it whirl” (it didn’t take too much convincing). I was a bit scared but I was more excited than anything so I jumped in with both feet. At that time I did not realize all the challenges that lie ahead. There was a wealth of information available but I found myself spending hours online just trying to sift through it all. Most of the resources were scattered and disjointed but I managed to find what I needed and move forward.
This brings me to my new venture and the purpose of this website.
The Birth of Everything Baking 101
I started Everything Baking 101 to provide you with a one-stop resource to help you learn cake decorating techniques and to inspire you. Our goal at Everything Baking 101 is to provide a location for bakers, enthusiasts, cake decorators, and confectioners to discover fresh ideas and feel inspired.
I will work to create a forum for sharing and learning everything there is to know about cakes and baking in a comfortable and relaxed environment.
I love what I do, and I found my true passion. I only wish I would have started sooner!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
