About the Cakes:
Cakes and icings(Italian buttercream with butter) have always been from scratch and tend to be chocolate, white cream cake, yellow cake, carrot cake, or almond cake. All cakes made with Madagascar Neilson Massey vanilla extracts.
I enjoy making gumpaste decorations such as flowers(wired, non-wired), figurines, scenery, bows, etc.
Some flowers I have enjoyed making are tulips, carnations, roses, water lily, lily of the valley, dogwood, and snap dragons.
I have an extensive private library with many cake decorating books published in England, some from Africa, some Australia, and America. I especially enjoy my decorating books from England.
