A Talent I Don't Have!
« on: June 07, 2010, 12:41:34 PM »
My daughter doesn't knit or sew or quilt, but she does something that I am HORRIBLE at doing....  she bakes!  She's started selling her cakes and cupcakes and I am just amazed what she can do with eggs and flour...





  This one is a cupcake!

I love to bake...but it is happening less and less lately.  I really need to break out the pans again!  Where is she selling?  Local or on line?

She is selling local in and around Charlotte, North Carolina.  I can see the pictures.  Are they not showing up to others?

You're trying to link it from your Google mailbox, so you're the only one who can see it.

Thank you all!  She is averaging one or two cakes a week, which is just about perfect right now with four children in the house!

Those are great!  I can do roses (took a couple Wilton classes), but my handwriting sucks.  I cheat; I got the impression letters so I can trace them.   ;)  Hers is really good.

I adore the sunflower cake! Your daughter has an amazing gift! She would have no problem making a business out of that if she desired to.
