Hi there, I am Tracy,
I live in Victoria Falls with my family and have been decorating cakes for years, specialising in Wedding Cakes.
Did you read my Start Here – Welcome to Cake at Vic Falls?
I look forward to helping you with any questions you may have and giving you a few tips along the way. 🙂
The following is about how I got into cake decorating, started my website and what you can expect to find here.
The Cake Part
An old friend said to me recently,
“cake icing was a big deal to you back then”
– that was how it was then, and happily, it still is!
I joined a friend and her Mom on a few cake icing classes when I was eleven.
I was hooked from the start!
Earning an income as a teenager, baking tea cakes and wedding cakes, I got a chance to figure things out my way.
Life has had its changes, and it hasn’t been possible to focus solely on this much-loved hobby, but I made many of my friends and family’s wedding and anniversary cakes, over the years.
My aim to make each cake unique, special and to learn something new with each design.
Teaching Cake Decorating
Now that I have more time, I return to cake decorating and make wedding cakes for a living – Yay!
With all the changes in cake trends, I’ve had to do a little catching up!
A new challenge I set about, is teaching what I love with others. It’s a joy to see students mastering skills and see how thrilled they are with what they have accomplished.
To make things easier for those who want to learn, but have busy schedules, I set about writing a FREE guide to get started with learning this skill. If you know someone who could benefit from this, please let them know where to find it. 🙂 Sharing is caring!
Online Niche Website Learning Curve…
A website presence was a necessity – but I had literally no experience in this field.
However, I did a lot of research and began to build a cake and travel niche website and am learning to use WordPress.
It has been an interesting (often scary and frustrating) experience… making cake is easy in comparison! Lol! However, help was never far…
You are welcome to check it out here!
If you are visiting us, we are confident that you will have an amazing holiday, with many memories to share. What better way is there to remember such a trip, than with delicious cake!
I looking forward to hearing from you and sweetening your day! Or leave a comment below here! 🙂
