Welcome

I am a sugar cookie artist, teacher, and homemade recipe lover! Let me show you how you can create beautifully decorated sugar cookies and tasty homemade cakes and sweets!

Meet Your Coach

My recipes are recipes to share the experience of having old family recipes with your family today.
Many people think cakes are all box made, think cookie decorating is for pros, think that it’s impossible to learn these techniques without going to culinary school. These statements are NOT TRUE!

You CAN bake great tasting scratch goodies at home, you CAN be the mom/grandma/nana that can decorate cakes for her family, you CAN learn techniques that you enjoy in the privacy of your own home and on your own schedule.

That’s where The Cake Way can help.

Glad you’re here!
