About Me

Hi I'm Alicia, and I love to bake and decorate.

Ever since I was little I have always loved to bake. I was on hiatus for a while but in the past year or so I've gotten back in the kitchen and behind my mixer.

In March 2010, I decided to enhance my baking skills with a cake decorating class at a local craft store with a couple of friends. Not only was this class enjoyable but I learned a few things as well - little tips and tricks of the cake decorating trade. After 3 weeks of this 2 hour class, I came upon the realization that I was actually quite good at this cake decorating thing! I decided that I would make birthday cakes for fellow employees at my day job as well as birthday cakes for my family and friends, more for the practice than anything else. I completed the first course, went on to the second, and third, and finally completed the fourth and final course. At this point my family, friends, and fellow employees had seen many of the cakes I had done and everyone suggested I start a custom cake business.

So here I am, today, with you reading my blog for the custom cake business I created - Buttercream Dreams! I am extremely excited about my business and the prospect of doing something I love full time is a dream that is completely inspiring to me!

Feel free to browse around the blog and become a fan of my facebook page!

(but you can call me just another cake-a-holic)
