Although I have loved the compliments from so many local clients and fans, it wasn't until I received an email this morning that one of my cake creations had been selected to appear on the cover of Cake Centrals (global) Newsletter, that I nearly jumped out of my skin! Cake Central is a company that publishes a worldwide cake decorating magazine for those who appreciate these magnificent works of sugar art! If I had the words to describe the feeling that swept over me this morning, it would be elated to the 100th power times ten!!

Five days ago I happened to get up the nerve to submit several of my cake photos to this website (Cake Centrals website is one that promotes other cake designer's to critique your work). Imagine how nervous I was considering I am so new to this industry! One of the cakes I submitted was my Fall Themed Birthday Cake. Having my cake photo moved to the "most saved" category the very day I submitted it was a complete surprise!.....but NOTHING compared to actually seeing it on the front of the magazines newsletter!!!

It is now that I know without a doubt that I am doing what I was always meant to do.....to bring smiles and joy to others through food and art combined with love and affection. This is the beginning of something special and I cannot wait to see where this road takes me!
we believe that we have come to a place
that is void of hope and void of possibilities,
only to find that it is the very hopelessness
that allows us to hit bottom,
give up our illusion of control,
turn it over, and ask for help.
Out of the ashes of our hopelessness
comes the fire of our hope."
~Anne Wilson Shaef
This quote is dedicated to all of those who believed in me and were there to lift me up when so many tried to tear me down. I love you all and will never forget the strength you gave to me to follow my dreams and to believe in myself! You are the Angels sent to me to give me wings so I can fly.
With All My LOVE,
