"...I really owe a debt of gratitude to Michael and Cindy, and YummyArts in general. You see, I didn't choose to be a Cake decorator, rather, the job choose me. I was the produce manager at our grocery store. Very small town! Everyone had to drive 20 miles to get to somewhere big enough to have Chain stores or a bakery to find a cake decorator.
Well, our store folded, leaving me out of a job. My best friend lives in the next town and works at their grocery store. She called me one day, and asked me if I thought I could decorate cakes. I've always been artistly inclined and have always been the one everyone looked to for"artsy" things. Sounded good to me, and if they wanted to take a chance on me, I'd like to give it a shot.
Well, needless to say I loved it! I jumped on the Internet to look for guidance and up pops "Cake Decorating Made Easy!" Volumes 1 & 2 and YummyArts. That was my training. I poured over CDME, practicing day and night every minute that I could. I picked up on it real fast and soon I proud of the cakes I was making. Then the unthinkable happened. The store closed.
I couldn't believe it! I searched for a cake job, but, wound up driving the taxi. NOT A GREAT JOB! Then out of the blue, one morning I get a phone call. Our local grocery store was going to be reopening, would I be interested in coming back as produce manager again. When I met with the new owners to discuss the job, I found a way to work into the conversation the fact I that I had been decorating cakes. We opened the new store, complete with a cake decorator 2 weeks later.
I'm having the time of my life, who could ask anything more?
