I have always enjoyed looking at nicely decorated cakes. I admire the skill involved in making cakes look beautiful. About a year and a half ago, I took a cake decorating class at Michaels. My goal was to learn to bake wedding cakes. I attend at least one wedding a year. The wedding cakes are always beautiful, but most never taste very good. Since I had the baking part down, I just needed to learn the decorating part. When I was growing up, my Mother always baked from scratch. If she used a cake mix, it was always a Duncan Hines cake mix. She says those were better.
I always take pictures of my cakes just for my own records. I shared my photos of the various cakes I baked with my sister-in-law. She has been showing those photos to people she works with and friends. I received an e-mail from her on Friday telling me that she wants me to be a vendor for the Little Rock School District. I asked her, "doing what?" She said that she wants me to make the cakes for the school district when they need cakes for an occasion. Wow! I think that's a pretty big deal.
So, I've ordered business cards and created a website for my business:
"Cakes by Michelle"
My website is:
I also created a blog:
Check out my website to see a sample of some of my work. I am still not where I want to be in terms of how my cakes look, but with more practice and experience, I'll get there.

I still plan to put out new posts about interior design--that's still a passion of mine. So continue to check out my blog for new posts.
