In the beginning....

As promised, I would try to give you a brief intro as to how I got into cake decorating.  The key word in the previous sentence is brief, as I have a tendency to be a bit long-winded.  Here it goes...

When I found out I was pregnant with my first son I decided that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mom.  I was getting fed up with work and just wanted out.  On top of that, my job typically required me to travel on a weekly basis and there was no way I could travel since my husband occasionally traveled for his job.  I thought this was going to be great, but I soon found out that I was not really cut out to not work.  In my boredom, I decided to take a Wilton class at AC Moore to give me SOMETHING to do other than feed and change a baby.  I really enjoyed my first installment and signed up for the remaining courses.  It was great to get out of the house and it seemed to click with me.  I contemplated starting a business from my home and offered to practice on some of my friends.  I seemed to be improving and thought maybe I can do this.  It would give me something to do and going into business would help pay for the endless amount of tools I wanted.  So in April of 2009 I started Fat Girl Cakes LLC, and as they say, the rest is history!  Now I have two boys and am thankful that cake decorating allows me to work and stay home with them.

  1. it's so crazy that you haven't been doing this for forever. your work is great (and yummy) so I feel like you've always done it. I guess it could also be that you've been doing it as long as I've known you!
