Just Cakes–I Taught Myself to Decorate Cakes

Just Cakes
I consider myself diverse. I enjoy a variety of activities and diddle in a lot of hobbies. While I enjoy the opportunity to be creative, I am by far a master of none of the things I do.

This post is about me. It’s about a long time ago. I was 22 years old. I had a cake business.

I had no formal training and have never taken a cake decorating class. I am envious of those who have and continue to nurture their talent and passion.

Li’l Man found the pictures today, what a blast from my past! These pictures are certainly not all the cakes created through Just Cakes, but a good representation of that business.

It all started a long time ago when my oldest child was a little thing and LOVED licking the buttercream icing bowl.
