Hi! I'm Erica, and I'll be your baketress today.
My story starts at a local grocery store in Syracuse, NY. I started working there when I was 15 and bopped around almost every department. I even worked in the video department when people still rented VHS tapes. If you're young and don't have any idea what a VHS tape is, keep it movin' and be thankful cake doesn't hit your hips yet :). So, after graduating from college and still holding on to my part-time job, I landed in the bakery department. Amidst the buttercream blobs on my shoes and dusting of powdered sugar on my hat, I found a passion for cake decorating. So, here I am today, still learning, still creating, still experimenting, and ready to be your personal baketress.
Why Do I Bake?
There's a big misconception that it's just cake. Everyone can bake, right? Half right. Yes, everyone with a spatula and a recipe can bake. But, can everyone create? I don't believe it's just cake when you witness the joy on someone's face as they see a cake or dessert specially created for them. Whether it's a child's Spongebob cupcakes or a bride's 5-tier dream cake, those reactions make it much more than batter and frosting.
Please note I am a home-based bakery without a storefront. I schedule pickups in Liverpool, NY and wedding cake tastings upon request.
