A website is nice, but a blog is so much more personal! I've decided to start one for Heavenly Bites Cakes so that everyone can get to know the behind-the-scenes action and how my cakes come together!
To elaborate on who I am, I'm Tara Kelly - the owner, baker, decorator of Heavenly Bites Cakes! I'm the mother of twin boys (9 months old this week!) and wife of an awesome, sweet and supportive husband...I work full time for a cable news ad sales division in client service, but make time for what was a really fun hobby and is now becoming a thriving business at night after work and after the babies head off to dreamland!
Heavenly Bites Cakes began as a small idea in my mind put there by family and friends who, after my sister and I took cake decorating classes for fun, said that I should really consider cake decorating as a business. I laughed it off for a long time, but really came to enjoy learning new decorating tricks and found myself researching "how to" do something for cakes a lot!
One night, when I realized the huge satisfaction I got from laying fondant over a cake and getting no wrinkles at the edges for the first time, I realized I was a huge cake dork and denying it any further would just be foolish! :) So I made myself a website (http://www.heavenlybitescakes.com/) and some business cards, got a few gigs from friends and acquaintances, started building a portfolio and sooner than I imagined, Heavenly Bites Cakes was born!
I've had a lot of laughs, long nights, aching feet, and great satisfaction as each order has been made and delivered, so now I want to share it all with you out there - whoever might be interested! :)
Stay tuned for posts about my latest cakes!
