I couldn’t be happier to be celebrating Miss Mila’s first birthday! I have known her wonderful parents for many years and I know just how much they love and adore her. I began working with Tara over a decade ago (now I feel old) and we became fast friends. I watched her wade through looser after looser until she finally met Mike. He was wonderful from day one, and I knew he was the right guy for Tara. I was honoured and flattered when they asked me (a very inexperienced cake designer, at the time) to make their wedding cake. It was a risk, but it paid off! Since then, I’ve been overjoyed to share their special moments with them (especially since the food at their parties is so darn good)! I look forward to many, many more. And maybe, if I’m really lucky, I will get to make Mila’s wedding cake too! But for now, it was a Dora themed first birthday. Inside the fondant smash cake is vanilla cake with strawberries and freshly whipped sweet cream. Along with the cake, I made some cupcakes and cute pink cookies (not pictured, sorry) as give-aways for the guests.
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!
