Pat-a cake, pat-a cake baker's man... or in my case, baker's woman!
My baby cousin Sara Grace and I have always had a special relationship. She is 10 years, 5 months and 8 days younger than I am, so she was like my baby doll when she was born. I loved being her little mama. She has such a free spirit and truly lives in the moment each day. I admire her in so many ways and wish I had her love for life!
She recently decided to enroll in culinary school and become a pastry chef. She took a cake decorating class a few months ago at a local cake shop in my hometown, and she really did well. Since then, she has been asked to make several cakes for our family and friends. Here are just a few of them...
An orange daisy cake for my grandmother's birthday
An engagement cake for a pink and black themed party!
A zebra patterned cake for my cousin's bridal shower
Sorry for the small picture... Palm tree cake with milk chocolate coconuts for bridal luncheon
Again, sorry for the small picture... Blue basket-weave cake with sugar flowers
She is still learning, but for a couple of classes, I think she is fabulous! Her dream is to open her own bakery - "Graceful Cakes" - in her hometown.
Sara Grace - I am so proud of you and the young woman you have become! Keep up the good work and never settle for less than you deserve. I hope that all of your dreams come true!
