I'm a lawyer by profession and an aspiring cake decorator in my free time. I started decorating cakes about 20 years ago but didn't have much time to dedicate to my passion while I was in law school and raising three busy girls. I'm looking forward to developing and refining my cake decorating skills, now that the kids are off to college!
