This is my blog. I just recently decided to add a blog to my website because it would seem that some people are actually interested in cake decorating and design. I can’t imagine it; it’s not like cake decorating is popular or anything.
I am not a hip and cool Tweeting, Facebooking, texting or 4G-surfing youngster so this is a stretch for me. In fact, just as I decided to start a blog, I read on MSN that blogging is going the way of the dinosaurs due to the Tweet and Facebook status. At any rate, as usual, I’m behind the times and I won’t be the most original. I am totally inspired by Chockylit’s Cupcake Blog. Her recipes are divine. However, despite photography tips from my bestie Joanne, you won’t see photos on my blog like Chockylit’s. One day I may own an SLR, but for now I’m working with a Canon Powershot and it doesn’t even have IS. (I’m also a big fan of Cleolinda (Occupation: Girl); if you’re a closet or not-so-closeted Twihard, you’ll love her, too; but she won’t do much for your cake decorating knowledge.)
One of the things I hope to accomplish with my blog is to help other cake decorators like me, who started out buying absurdly expensive products because there was nowhere else to buy them in Ottawa. Admittedly I have not visited every kitchen shop or bakery in Ottawa; but I’ve come to the conclusion that Ottawa is not the easiest place to be a cake decorator, if you’re like me with a part-time business, wishing to be a true professional.
So read along, if you can stand my long-winded blatherings, and learn with me as I go! Check out my website at www.christiescakes.ca.
