I used to own a custom wedding cake business for 20 years, and now I bake for fun (and to eat bread and cookies.) I have a certificate in Pastry Arts and I like baking more than cooking.

I’ve also taught other home-based businesses how to start and succeed since the early 2000’s, and I published my first book on the subject of home-based business. My YouTube channel for my cake decorations business is at A Cake To Remember. I also have a hobby blog for gingerbread houses and dollhouses that’s located at My work has been featured on multiple websites and on news outlets through the years, and I’ve been interviewed on various business and cake decorating topics on outlets ranging from MSNBC online to Martha Stewart Weddings.
