My Greatest Creation Yet!


On November 17th my husband and I introduced our daughter Sophie Pearl Ricks to the world. She weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. She is by far my greatest and most creative endeavor to date.

Thank you to all my clients, students and friends who have sent good wishes.

I will be on sabbatical from teaching, making cakes and Food Network Challenges until February but will keep you updated with a few events here and there. I will be giving a demo and teaching a class at The NY Cake Convention in January.


I have already started thinking about Sophie’s first birthday cake but luckily I have some time before then!

This houndstooth skirt is absolutely adorable Coach Outlet. The houndstooth pattern is so high fashion and funky. Even thougth this skirt is black Coach Coach Bags and white, the detail is so fashionable. It is a high waisted skirt, which makes it even better. The length of the skirt is perfect for a date or a day of shopping. You can purchase this skirt. Jean shorts are so cute Coach Op Art Bags and great for the summer time. They are good for wearing to the beach or to go shopping. These shorts are especially adorable because they Coach Satchel Bags have big buttons and a lot of pockets. The pockets and the buttons make the shorts look so much more feminine. Jean shorts, a v-neck shirt, gladiator sandals, wayfarers, and a locket necklace would be a great Coach Bags outfit for a party, the beach, or wearing around the house. Sometimes simple is better, and in this case, it is.
