The next best thing to being a Mommy - is being an Auntie (and I speak from experience)! Alexa's Auntie Janelle asked me to make the cake for the family Baptism celebration, which I was very happy to do. Jan didn't have any opinions on the cake and wanted me to go wild... I knew a bit better and decided to ask my friend Lisa (the Mommy) what she wanted. She pointed me to a website that had this ribbon cross design, which I loved. For the cake, Lisa asked for lemon (which Ive never made before - she likes to challenge me) with cream cheese frosting - OMG that sounded good! I found a recipe for lemon cake in my Grandmother's Good housekeeping cook book and got to work. I think everyone was very pleased with the result!
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
