Hi, I’m Brooke. I am a self-taught baker and cake decorator. I read everything that I can get my hands on about baking and cake decorating, and I’m a major fan of the tutorials found on You Tube. My best teacher has been (and continues to be) trial and error. Whenever I pull-off something in my kitchen, I celebrate by doing a little happy dance. Always.
What is it about cake? There is something fulfilling about taking a few simple ingredients and creating something lovely and delicious. But, for me, there’s more to it.
If you think about it, cake plays a role in most important life milestones. After all, what’s a birthday without a cake lit with candles? Wouldn’t a wedding reception seem a little odd if the bride and groom didn’t have a cake to cut? (Gasp!) I’ve had the joy (and honor) of making cakes for my friends and family to celebrate such milestones in their lives. I’ve got to tell you, at least for me, there’s nothing like it.
When it comes down to it, cake is an expression of love. That’s what drives this cake obsession of mine. It’s all about the love.
Do you have a caking question for me, or would you just like to say “hello”? I’d love to hear from you! Just shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
