I love my job!

I have been doing the same thing for 29 years and at the same shop for the past 17 years. I am a cake decorator, but specialize in wedding cakes.  I also make fondant bows, accents, trim and signs that go on tiered birthday cakes. I also do mini cakes and small decorated cakes to “pick up and go”.  The variety keeps things interesting and I continually get to be creative! I have a new boss who loves my work and appreciates what I do. That makes life much easier! It’s nice to be appreciated.

This week I am making some fondant roses to paint silver for a cake, and I will be making a wedding cake with a fondant applique orchid on the sides.  That is something I haven’t done before, but I just need to sketch out the pattern of the orchid to fit a 3 tier cake and then cut it out. It’s going to look sharp. I’ll be sure to take a picture.

About estherlou

My husband and I married in 1970. I am the mother of 2 and grandmother to 5. I am a retired wedding cake decorator. I like watching Netflix on the Wii. I am catching up on all of the old tv shows I missed when they were on prime time! Right now though, I am reading and writing blogs, watching tv, making jewelry and rosaries, selling in my Etsy store and playing solitaire. I am home bound and add in my physical therapy exercises to my daily routine. I will blog about my progress or anything that catches my attention at that moment. See you around and thanks for stopping by!
