About This Blog

I am writing this blog because I have been frustrated in my efforts to create the perfect cake. Yes, I know, there can never be a perfect cake, but the finished product can be a hell of a lot better than most we amateurs - and even professionals, turn out. I call myself an amateur, because that is exactly what I am. My wife and I make cakes for special events that our friends and family have, and we don't make money in the process.

We watch every "cake challenge", "Ace of Cakes" and any other show that broadcasts cake making events and contests. What I have found out is that the REAL secrets of how to bake, decorate and deliver a cake to an event are never full explained. I intend to do that in this blog.
