Hi, My name is Jessica. I started this blog to show my cakes and the fun adventure of baking with little kids around. 🙂 I have a 2 year old and a 11 month old and my life is nothing but boring! Almost weekly we have little footprints of flour or powdered sugar all over the living room carpet and more often than I would like to admit my kids smash cake all over the table and chairs. But it is a lot of fun. I have been decorating cakes since December 2011 when I made my little girls first birthday cake. Since then I have started doing cakes as a side job and I LOVE it!
My little baker loves to help with everything and anything I will let her! I do the majority of my cake decorating in the evenings after the kids go to bed because making a cake is a long process as a mom of 2 young kids. I never make a cake in one day. It normally takes the span of a week. I bake one day. And make frosting another and whatever other things I might need. Its worked pretty well for me!
A LITTLE ABOUT MY FAMILY
We live in the Eugene/Portland oregon area. My husband is a second year law student and an amazing man! I graduated from BYU-Idaho with a BFA in graphic design and now I am a freelance graphic designer who works from home after the kids go to bed. Really its a pretty awesome dream job. I like to imagine myself as a cake decorator and photographer, but all that stuff I am still learning along the way. We have been married 4 years and have 2 beautiful CRAZY kiddos!
A LITTLE ABOUT MY KIDDOS
I love my little man! He was born with a congenital cataract and is so brave. He wears glasses and a contact. He is stinkin cute in his glasses!
My little girl is a little ball of energy! She makes me so happy and teaches me new things every single day. She LOVES cake and helping make cake, frosting and of course LOTS of messes!
