I've been married 25 years. I have 4 kids ages 23,17,15 and 10. I like cake decorating and have made 100's of birthday, wedding and anniversary cakes for friends and family. They say that I should open up my own bakery...maybe someday. I work full time in a dental office, so I don't have much time to bake cakes these days.
My favorite things to cook
I cook a lot of mexican dishes(sometimes my youngest complains that we eat it "too much"). I love baking goodies, especially around the holidays.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to bake shaped sugar cookies at christmas time.
My cooking triumphs
My decorated cakes
My cooking tragedies
I have more than I care to mention. One incident in particular happened in the summer of 2006. I was putting together a "New York style cheesecake" wedding cake for my best friends daughter. Because it was so hot outside and in my kitchen, the cream cheese frosting used to add a decorative border broke down and separated. After trying to cool it off in the fridge and adding more white chocolate I was unsucsessful and I couldn't use what I had. I had to run to the store and get fresh ingredients and make a new batch. Fortunately it did turn out beautiful in the long run, and everyone loved it. However I missed the wedding ceremony which upset me very much. But we had a great time at the reception!
