Where It All Began

Hello all!

My name is Emily and I am an average 19 year old college student with a not-so average love for cake. Vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, any/every flavor of cake is included in my obsession. In addition to my passion for cake, I also have a great love for food and fashion. In this blog you can expect to see my cake creations as well as food, fashion and snippets of my life as a college kid.

For my first post, I feel that I should display where my love for cake all began.
Ah, the unbeatable funfetti. A great introduction to cakes if I do say so myself. After that I was hooked. And although my eating techniques have changed since then, my love for cake has not.

I was given a cupcake decorating book for my 18th birthday called "hello, cupcake". Not only did it spark my interest in cake decorating but it was a great beginner book. The same authors have recently come out with a new book that I need to check out called, "What's New, Cupcake".

I immediately got to work on my first batch which I chose to be sunflower cupcakes.. they didnt turn out the best. To my defense I had to improvise to make my own piping bags. But I was determined to do better on my next creation.
