I was in Cullinary School, hoping to become a Pastry Chef before I moved to Chico, Ca. I put my Schooling aside so I could support my husband through Engineering School, since he will be the bread winner, and I can be a mommy (Some Day). But I love Cake decorating, I made my Brothers Grooms cake for his wedding, I also made 150 Chocolates in the shape of Music notes for their wedding favors. My hubby has made me promise that I will go back to cullinary School once he finishes school, he feels really guilty that I put it off, but really I was just having fun, my dream is to be a good wife and mommy with a small side job to get away once in a while. But yes, I too love the pastry arts!

Good Lucks and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to both of you!

I graduated culinary school almost 10 years ago. I worked as a pastry chef in Birmingham, AL before getting married and becoming a stay-at-home mom. I've done wedding cakes as gifts for my friends and even did my OWN wedding cake. Yeah, not something I recommend...
Getting married at 11, at 9:30, I was still covered in icing.
If you can think of a cake, chances are I've done some variation of it. I never did take pics of the cakes I created in my Birmingham restaurant days, but I sure wish I had. Lesson learned! I now photograph EVERYTHING I create, no matter how simple. It's great fun and I love doing cakes for my children!

Hello, here are some of my "works of art". Cinderella was a pain, I hate doing faces. I have 3 kids... May, June, and August is my baking season. Each cake takes 2-3 hours (it would help if I had more than 2 tips for separate colors.) I clean each tip after every color (what a pain). This year I am well prepared with extra tips and bags! I would love to do this for a living.

If anyone is interested in classes for cake decorating you should check at your local hobby shop, like Hobby Lobby if you have one. They usually offer the Wilton cake decorating classes. There are three levels. Plus other types for fondant and candy making. I took the Wilton classes and now I get to make the cakes for guys I work with for their birthday. If I don't they wine
. It can be a lot of fun. I just bought a chicken cake pan on ebay.

I may be the only guy to post on this tread, but I am secure enough with my manhood to say that I really like baking and decorating cakes. I have done both of my kid's cakes for every birthday since they were born. I will post some pics of them when I have more time to dig them out of the archives, but here is one that I found that I can share.

I did this cake with the son of friend of my wife's. He is a cub scout and this was a father son bake a cake and she is a single mom so I stood in as his dad for a day. There were many categories and we entered best boy scout theme. We won best of show



The neckerchief buttons and badges are made of fondant and the beads were gumballs. I used food coloring and my airbrush to decorate the badges.
