April Days


Sorry I haven’t been around lately.  Its been a combination of things, really….

For starters my computer is dead (I’m literally writing from my iPhone) and I haven’t a clue when I’m getting around to fixing it.  I’ve also been on that fun roller-coaster ride of flus and colds that has touched everyone in my family (the latest being me, catching a wicked case of strep throat).  I know, how lovely.

So what else is new? Well I celebrated my 34th birthday.  Yeah, I’m not one of those gals who shy away at the mere mention of my impending birthday and being a year older.  I actually embrace it.  Love it.  Make a cake for it.

Yep, you heard me right.  I made my on cake this year.  I figure at least it’ll be a flavour I like and in a design I want.  Unlike so many past years, where it has been a bunny rabbit.  Because my birthday is in the spring and somewhat close to Easter….well, you see where I’m going with this….  So what did I decide to do?  


  I have 2 at the moment on my ankle.  The sun and the moon I got for my 21st birthday, and a dragon image I got a few years later overlaying the first tattoo. 

I have been playing with the idea of getting another tattoo, but it all boils down to location, location, location.  Do I get one on my wrist, on my other ankle, on my hip?  Oh the decisions.  So what easier way to get a bunch of my tattoos down, but on a cake?



About Leah

Hello, I'm Maria Leah. I'm a pretty average novice baker & most recently cake designer. The funny thing is I haven't taken a cake decorating class - yet. Instead I watch way too much "Ace of Cakes", "Cake Boss" & anything really off Food Network, that one day I thought to myself, "why don't I make a cake"? And so I did...One cake, turned into 2, which turned into 3...which turned into cake and cupcake orders for my family, friends and now people who are really taking an interest in my work. Photos of my progress followed, my skills started to sharpen...and my supportive friends insisted on more cakes and what you have now is me blogging about all my baking and designing adventures - the failures and the sweet success. Enjoy. ML
