Why freezing cakes keeps them moist

Kay, I know a ton of people out there don’t like the word “moist” BUT I’m not sure how else to describe a cake that’s not dry in any way. SO I’ll probably use it a few times in this post – sorry.

All that moisture is going OUT of your cake into the air, and it’s drying out slightly. For most cakes its probably okay, BUT I don’t just want an OKAY cake I want to serve an amazing cake.

Online cake decorating classes

I have been cake decorating for over 8 years now, and I LOVE it! One of my favorite things to do teach. It’s one of the reasons I started a blog, I love doing cake tutorials and inspiring you guys to make your own cakes at home. I love making cakes for clients, of course, but what really makes me giddy is when someone sends me a picture of a cake they made for their child!

How to fill a cake- video series

It’s been WAY too long since our last video in my series. It’s taken longer than I thought to get back to editing the videos. Hopefully over the next few weeks I’ll get the rest of the video’s I already filmed edited and posted. It’s funny to see me pregnant again! And I was only about 28 weeks when I made these videos!
