I get the question a lot... “How in the world did you get into the business of creating mini cakes!?” It’s not exactly one of the childhood professions we typically come up with, right?
At the same time…art, clay, and just plain making stuff with my hands has been in my heart since I was a kid. I’ve always been creative. When I was really little, I always dug up clay in my backyard. It would drive my dad crazy because I made holes all over the yard! But it was the beginning of my artistic calling.
Based on my backyard love of mud, it wasn’t a surprise that I gravitated toward ceramics in college and fell in love with everything about it…the clay, the mud, the smell. Total love.
Making things with my hands is just a part of who I am. I physically have to make stuff! Before my business, you should have seen my kids’ Halloween costumes! My girls (ages 8, 6, & 4) love my artistic flair and we really enjoy creating art together as a family. Of course, when we aren’t making art together, we are running around with all of their activities – soccer, ballet, gymnastics, piano. It’s a full and beautiful life!
What I love now about creating mini memories is that I get to preserve something that is gone. After the beautiful wedding ceremony comes to a close, the flowers die and the cake gets eaten. And really – photos can’t quite capture the three-dimensional grandeur of a well-designed cake or bouquet. I love that I get to bring those elements back to life so you can experience them for years to come.
