Thanks for visiting our website!
I am here because of all the ladies who have gently influenced me...
My mother always said that she didn't know where I got my interest in baking-- "Not from me!" she'd say. She was my biggest fan, however!
My Grandmother was an influence though, sadly I only have one of her recipes (and it never turns out as good as hers!) I did take possession of her rolling pin and a few old cupcake tins that were hers and I still use!
My neighbor, Mrs. Fekete, gave me a Betty Crocker Cookbook to look for ideas to help me pick a project for a creativity fair at school--I made an igloo cake and won a ribbon!
my 20's I picked up a book "Creative Cakes" (written by Stephanie
Crookston) and thought I'd try a few. I've been baking/decorating at
varying levels of intensity ever since.
Currently, the ladies influencing me are...
1) My daughter/business
partner Kerianne-- who after graduating from college renewed my "follow
your dream" outlook and joins me now in the business- SallyTracyCake.
Now I don't know how I did it without her! It's great having a
partnership and sharing this venture with her.
and 2) Loryn Dagon and
Colyn Camp- the sisters behind "Chef Loryn"-- they have literally
given me an outlet to further my business and all the dreams that go with it by
mentoring me in the practical side of the food "biz"-- I prefer the
creative side but you must have both to be successful! Can't thank them
thank you to all my loyal customers, friends and family who have followed me on
this journey. I know the best is yet to come!
