"My grandmother made me a wonderful house when I was only four years old. But it wasn't until two years ago I started making my own mini cakes and food," she said.
Her tiny food garners oohs, ahhs and YUMs! from all who see them. An intricate Chocolate Tower Cake looks like something featured on a Food Network Chocolate Challenge, while a platter of cheese and fruits accompanying a bottle of wine looks like the perfect snack. She has taken the art of the photo cake and shrunk it for the dollhouse.
"It's a unique miniature sheet (or round) cake created just for you! I will decorate your cake with your photo or non-copyrighted image in whatever colors you wish! I ask people to email me their color and shape preference in a JPEG or other format I can edit. It's a perfect gift for weddings, baby showers, party favors, holidays or just because it's fun. I like to tell people my cakes are handcrafted with love from polymer clay by a professional cake decorator with a passion for miniatures," she said.
Her grandmother's gift paved the way for a lifetime of fun.
"This is my true passion. I used to be a regular cake decorator but much prefer the tiny ones. I pull a lot of my inspiration from real cakes I used to create. I am always thinking of new creations," she said.
A member of Custom Dolls, Houses & Miniatures, she says she is always inspired by all the artisans she has met there.
"They are spectacular," she gushed.
The current challenge for her talented fingers is a commissioned Strawberry Shortcake, an item that would fit perfectly in her dream creation.
"Some day I'd love to create a miniature complete bakery roombox," she said.
She is also a member of IGMA.
