My intentions of this blog are to of course showcase my talents but also to encourage others to bake! I want to show people that you do not have to attend a culinary arts school (if you do, that is obviously great!) to be successful in the baking business. You do not need super expensive equipment or a large oven to get wonderful and professional looking results. I have been in this business for a few years and I have learned so much without taking one class! And I want to share with you what I have learned.

Cool Resources

I want to share with you some of the resources that I have purchased and/or previously used for inspiration for some of cakes and cupcakes! The world wide web is of course my best friend but there are also so many cool books that I have purchased that I would like to share. This list will hopefully continue to grow!


Hello, Cupcake! by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson ($15.95). This is 1 of 3 books that I have purchased by these 2 authors. I absolutely fell in love with this book and could not believe the amazing ideas that I found inside. The authors use many easy to find ingredients such as pretzels, cereal pieces, jelly beans, sprinkles, life savers, Twizzlers, laffy taffys, starbursts and many more! These 2 people are fantastic and I am just amazed at the ideas that are in this book, ideas that they break down for you and make it seem very possible to accomplish!

What's New, Cupcake? by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson ($16.95). I could not believe that they had even more ideas to share! The authors are back with the same techniques, also sharing some new ones, and fresh new ideas for cupcake decorating. There are some cool food cupcake ideas along with ideas for almost every occasion you can think of!

cupcakes, cookies & pie, oh, my! by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson ($17.95).  I stumbled upon this book at a book fair at my job and was sooo excited because I had no idea that they made another book and this one is even better because it includes ideas for cookies and pies as well! This book is brand spanking new to me so I haven't really got my feel of it yet but from flipping through the book I can for sure say that I will not be disappointed. Tack & Richardson have completely stepped their game up with this one!
