Sweet Treats

NOTE:  I'm in the process of figuring out if I need to get some kind of permit for selling baked goods from my home as a fundraising endeavor.  Until I know for sure, I am happy to work on a few things for practice, and if you feel led to help us with the medical bills by giving us a gift, I'll be happy to accept.

I enjoy making cakes.  I really enjoy making original cakes.  Have a fun idea?  Contact me and let's make your idea a tasty reality.

Here are some of the sweets I've made in the past.  My favorite cake is chocolate, but I'm open to just about anything!  When I make a chocolate cake from scratch, it's usually Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate Chocolate Cake, which I'll simply type as HPCC from here on out, otherwise, I'll let you know.

Check back on the home page to see new creations not yet posted here.

This was my first decorative cake, ever, and I made it in Russia where baking supplies readily available in the States are not so readily available.  This was definitely a learning experience, and what prompted me to try some more techniques.

At this point I don't have a base price list for cakes because of the issue I mentioned at the beginning of this post.  If you have an idea for a cake, I can suggest a donation amount, if you would like.

  1. Hi Cristy,
    You know those delicious cookies you make into balls and freeze? People might like to order them to have on hand in their freezers. You could sell them by the box with about 2 dozen in each box. love, mom
