Many of you know that I took a full-time position at a new Catholic high school in the area.  I believe very strongly in the success of the school and everything it stands for.  I am the school’s Office Manager and I LOVE going to work every day!  I am still making cakes, but have significantly scaled back the number of cakes I do in a weekend, so get your requests to me as soon as you have dates!  That said, I have the following announcement to make.

I want to start off by saying a HUGE THANK YOU to those that have supported me throughout these last few years…family, friends, customers…I am truly blessed!  I love making cakes and seeing the reactions to them!  They are my little babies and I love each and every one!  It has been a pleasure working with each and every one of you to create your perfect cake for your occasions!  I love starting with a wedding cake, making baby shower cakes and then eventually your children’s birthday cakes…it’s fun to be a part of your lives in that way!

Bad Blogger (Sorry!)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Please forgive me…I’ve been a BAD blogger, I know.  I’m sorry!  Allow me to explain!

First, I am a wife and mother to 2 VERY active little boys!  Then I bake and decorate cakes.  During the school year, I work as the school’s Kitchen Manager, cooking lunch for around 150 every day.  It’s an interesting job, very stressful and tiring.  I also serve on our church’s Pastoral Council and Youth Ministry Council, design and layout the school’s auction fundraiser program, co-lead Vacation Bible School, and I could probably go on, but I won’t bore you with all I do!  But you get the drift…I can’t say no and as a result, I’m a busy lady and blogging just got pushed into the VERY low-priority list (I’m sure there’s a lot of you out there that can relate)!  I promise to try harder!

I have been updating all of the galleries with new pictures of the cakes that I’ve been doing.  And if you want more up-to-the-minute updates (or as close as possible, anyway), you can follow me on Facebook…I promise, I update faster there!

There are big changes in store for Cake is Life in the future, including a newly redesigned website (there…I put it out there!  Now my husband HAS to do it!) 🙂

I assure you, I have been making cakes, I still LOVE to make them and will continue to take orders for them!  Email me at to place your order or use the Contact Form here on the blog.

Thank you so much for your continued loyalty!  It is such a pleasure working with great people such as yourselves!  I’m honored to be part of your special events and I love it that you let me help you to create your perfect custom cake centerpieces!

In the meantime…

In case you are anxiously awaiting the arrival of blog posts with actual content and pictures, you can ease your anxiousness by visiting my Facebook page…just use the little linky linky to the right, or you can click on the Flickr box on the right and view them that way too. I had a few moments to upload the last month’s pictures on both of those sites! Enjoy in the meantime and I promise to return shortly with some REAL content!

Availability Announcement

September is filling up FAST! I have room for a smallish cake or two on the 25th, but otherwise, it’s booked! Sorry, folks…and THANK YOU for keeping me busy!

Wine Box Cake {UPDATED}

Wine Box Cake

Wine Box Cake

This cake was made for a donation to a fundraising event for our school. The event was a wine tasting and it was to be a part of a raffle. This cake was a difficult one for me, not because the cake was difficult, but because I ended up having to bake it twice…at 2 AM. There was a mini mental breakdown at 4AM and after a few hours of sleep and the help of my sister, who watched the kids for a few hours, I was able to focus and knock it out. I would have taken pictures, but I REALLY would rather NOT remember it!

Emily, everyone loved your cake. A friend of Mrs. Shannon’s won it and is going out of town so she gave it to the teachers. They are all in for a wonderful treat Monday!!!! ~ Kathy

UPDATED 04/12/2010:  I found out last yesterday that this cake was won by a woman who turned around and donated it to the teachers at the school to enjoy!  I think that’s very sweet and I hope they all enjoyed it today!
