Why me? Over the past year I have had some significant life events and celebrations: I got married, I had a significant milestone birthday, and I gave birth to my son. All of these events were marked with friends, family, hugs, some tears, much joy, and of course…cake! I am always one for celebrating the great things in life and sharing the sweetness of it all with others. Cake is such a treat and it’s the perfect way to say, “isn’t this moment just the best?"
Why cake? My family is big on food and celebrations. Making cakes from scratch has been apart of our family’s baking traditions for many, many years. My mother and aunt are both very talented cooks and bakers and I call on them on a regular basis for techniques, advice and special recipes as they seem to try their hand at making everything!
About the photos I did a little bit of archiving and gathered up all of our family photos that had anything to do with cake and celebrations. While I am not a food photographer, I am a fine art photographer and film editor, so my eye for memorable images of our cake adventures is keen. I’m excited to put all of these ideas, memories and tasty recipes out to this blog’s audience to share and delight in all things cake!
About the recipes I have credited the origin of each recipe to the best of my ability. Any changes or modifications that I make are noted in the post.
