I'm sorry to announce (and it is a long story) I will not be attending the NY Cake Convention this year. Wishing everyone involved a successful show. Happy New Year!

Heading Back to work…

Let’s just say I wouldn’t recommend heading back to work just a week or two after the birth of your first child. But like many of my friends and colleagues that own small businesses, especially cake designers, we all have this gene within us that makes us do crazy things. I had to pass on segments on Oprah (yes the Oprah), Good Morning America and a Food Network Challenge but I just couldn’t say no to a recent cake.

One of my wonderful clients that we have done cakes for before had purchased a cake at the silent auction for a charity I support every year called C-CAP . Out came a two-tiered holiday cake with a gnome theme.

While feeding my new baby, running back and forth between home and bakery (with gum paste and fondant in hand) the cake was completed. And I could not have done it without the help of my amazing assistants who baked and built the two cakes, and made all the arrangements.

Now I have to go cut some brownies but after this I am REALLY taking maternity leave…at least I think I will.
