I have been creating my cake art since 1982, as a Junior at Fairley High School in Memphis, TN.  That was the year I saw my first cake magazine and received inspiration from my home economics teacher, Mr. McDuffi.  I am self-trained and have been privileged to have cakes featured on Good Morning Texas and Walker Texas Ranger as well as  on billboards throughout the State of Texas for the Texas Lottery Commission. I’ve also competed on Food Network’s Last Cake Standing and enjoyed appearing on TLC, Good Day Dallas as well as many other local channels.

I focus on making everything on the cake edible, or should I say Absolutely Edible! I take great pride in doing so. I come up with ideas and design by actively listening to my customers. I like to get inside their heads, tap into their minds and dreams, and help make those dreams come true. I strive to make every cake very special and personal for them.

Many of my cakes have been for celebrities or have even become celebrities of their own. To name a few, I have done cakes for Rickey Smiley, Nanette Lee, Vivica A Fox, Hope Flood and several of the Dallas Cowboys and the Cowboy’s Cheerleaders. My recent fame includes my “Life Size Bride Cake”. It has been featured on CNN News, Inside Addition, In Touch Weekly, Montel Williams, The Daily Mail, the Metro in the UK and many more.

Another of my infamous creations isn’t a cake at all, it is my “Sweet Potato Thang”. It is a modern twist on the sweet potato pie. The creamy sweet potato filling is so velvety and smooth which sits on top of its mouthwatering graham cracker crust. The blend of the silky textures with just a hint of pure vanilla keeps you wanting more and more. Over the years it has become a Thanksgiving Day staple which we are shipping all over the country.

Although I have some famous clients it is my goal to make all my clients feel like famous celebrity themselves. When ask what my specialty is I can honestly say, “Your order.” When asked how it did it, I simply reply, “It was a piece of cake!”
