A Not-so-brief into...
Over a decade ago, after watching many episodes of Ace of Cakes, I discovered I enjoyed cake decorating. The first attempt? The Gerberding Grill involved various techniques for the various food items and elements. A couple years later, the largest project was a roughly 40 pound Cowboys Stadium - complete with open roof and hanging scoreboard.
In time, I found myself using a particular technique more and more. Originally just a simple method for detailed features, it became the focal point of the cakes themselves. This process is Buttercream Transfer.
A few years ago I considered starting a cake business - making cakes for others, but this plan fell apart when I talked to the Health Department and realized the requirements for a licensed home kitchen. During that same discussion, however, the idea of training instead came up.
I taught a couple workshops at the Peoria Michael's store in 2019. During that time, I was experiencing persistent numbness and tingling in both hands - eventually diagnosed as Carpal Tunnel (wrists) and Cubital Tunnel (elbows) syndrome.
Originally declining surgical options, I soon changed my mind only to find out that hospitals were closed to surgeries due to some virus thing going on. Eventually, in August 2020, I did get that surgery on my right wrist and elbow.... and the very next month, my left wrist and elbow.
Cake decorating? I just wanted to use both hands again without pain, tingling, and numbness!
In early 2021, my wife and I decided to revisit the training idea, but instead of limiting it to local in-person workshops, consider a online training.
Me making cakes? If I did two cakes per week and took two weeks off, that would be 100 per year.
What if instead of making 100 cakes, I shared this technique with 100 busy moms
(dads, aunts, uncles, friends, etc) who used it to put smiles on the faces of their kids, family, friends, or even complete strangers.
I look forward to seeing individual people share their "first project" after training... and then, in time, when our training results not in "my" cakes, but "your" cakes.... we - as a community - hit 10 decorating projects.
then 1000.... of YOUR Unforgettable Cakes.
Because life's too short for forgettable cakes!
