I've been baking all my life. I started as a little girl, standing on a chair rolling out sugar cookies with my mom. It's just what we did. In high school and college I would pursue creative classes, but baking was still just something I did. Finally, mid 20's I took the plunge and went to pastry school and got some formal training. Ever since, it's been a fun process of learning and growing.
These days, I've gotten better, but I'm still learning a lesson from every cake.

A few weeks back, you may remember the dump truck cake for my nephew? That's the one. Well, the following weekend my brother and sister-in-law threw his birthday party for their friends and their children, so I wasn't surprised when I got the call for some cupcakes - that's a regular order for these parties.
Creative control was in my hands again, as long as it was boy-y.
If memory serves, that was a busy weekend for me... more cakes on the go, or heading out of town, so I wanted something easy, and found a cute picture of a car topper, and decided to give it a go. I ended up with some pretty cute cars on these cupcakes :)
It's like a parking lot over here.
Just boy enough! Lovingly placed by big sister Grace.
