My name is Helga and my passion is CAKES!! I love baking and decorating cakes.
I am a mother of 3 beautiful children. My daughters Kaitlyn aged 12 and Kyra aged 2 and my son Kraig aged 9. Apart from juggling between the pace of keeping up with the house work, my kid's school homework, co curricular activities and keeping my kids out of mischief, I run a small business from home....Cake Creations.
Baking has been in our family for as long as I can remember. In fact till today my 88 year old grandmother is the proprietor of MASTERKRAFT, a school where one can learn all kinds of arts and crafts as well as cooking and baking.
As a kid I would help out my mum mix up the batter for a cake. I still remember the yelling I would get for tasting the batter all the time...but that never stopped me :-)
Every birthday for me was a special one where I got to choose the type of cake I wanted and my aunt would make it for me. I guess those childhood memories did inspire me to make beautiful cakes for my family and friends especially my kids. My kids love their birthday cakes.
I have come a long way in baking and decorating cakes.
Some of them have been based on trial and error.
Thanks to my husband Terrance MY BIGGEST CRITIQUE.
His support and belief along with constructive criticism
has helped me get better at what I love doing the most....
As a self taught cake decorator I've looked almost everywhere and anywhere for tutorials, how-to's and information. I learn more everyday with every new cake and I know that the process of learning is unending. I hope some day I too will get an opportunity to learn from some very talented cake decorating professionals.
Whatever the occasion there is always a Cake to celebrate!!
Thanks for stopping by.
