WARNING: “For the Grown and Cake Lovers Only”
Happy NEW YEAR! I am so happy it is 2018! Only four months until the big Las Vegas Championship completion! Someone please pinch me, I get to compete in the Food Network kitchen Mother’s Day weekend! OMG, how exciting is that! It is amazing how God places you in the moment, right where you need to be!
Do you remember?
Vision boards really work!!! Who would of thought the night my coach Shaniece M. Wise (who is amazing if you are in need of a business or personal development coach) gave me the homework assignment of completing a vision board. Who would of imagined what was going to happen next!
Jul 22, 2017 ( two days before my birthday)…I looked at you hanging on my wall every day and night! I want the first time to be special – history making. It had to be an event like no other, to remember for the rest of my life. The perfect moment of time, capturing every sweet twist and turn. I have creamed so many cakes before this moment- but none of them seem to matter. Only this one matters now…
The only thing that matter is concurring this cake in this moment. This cake is special, it is different. This cake can change my life, this is the cake I have worked and sacrificed so much for. Time to plan and prepare, I have to get this right!
Now, it is here…. it seems fake until you realize how close you are to the amazing event. The cake event of your life! Your presence is intoxicating, I can not feel my body it is as if I am floating.

Sitting on your stage…
I am nervous because I have never done anything like this before, hoping you will be kind to me. On the other hand I am ready, I want you so bad I can not focus on the fake fear – it is only a smoke screen, because I have a greater fear terror of not having you. I need you more and right now. I dream of you please do not let me fail. …
Just then I hear the count down.Round One.. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 … Jesus, take the wheel!
Trolls Themed Cupcakes:
Another round, my heart is pounding and my hands are shaking. Round Two….Black & White….5, 4, 3, 2, 1 … Oh Lord! Your sweet aroma pulls me back to reality. I must put it down not matter what happens. I must…..just then I hear 5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. STOP!
The most action packed 5 minutes of life… it felt like 60 seconds. I kept telling myself “no what, get it decorated!” I moved my hands across and round that cake controlling its every bend and twisted turn. Hand placing every pearl and rose!
And other round….Round 3… 5, 4,, 3, 2, 1 …
Leave it all on the table… I gave my heart on this table. Giving you cake to remember my name! I want you to never forget this cake, so when someone mentions me or cake. I want to your think back to this day and this cake! I want my cake to be loved and spread all over the world one slice at a time!
That moment it happened… breathe taking! Time froze I could not move, glued to your every word. Did you really call my name, I was floored! Paralyzed, with a million thoughts running through my head; however, no words will come out. Finally, a word… “never give up, especially on yourself!”
