This week we are happy to show off some beautiful and tasty creations by Wedding Cake Creator Renea of Baked Expressions. Our mouths are watering thinking about Red Velvet cake with Bailey’s Irish Cream Buttercream filling!
How did you get into the wedding cake business?
I love to bake and cook and find that I’m most creative in the kitchen. At the suggestion of my son, I took a Wilton cake decorating class to learn how to decorate and “make the cakes look pretty”. One class led to another and it became a hobby. The hobby became a fulltime job, after being layed-off from my regular job.
How many years have you been in the industry?
I started decorating in 2007, however I opened my shop two years ago.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Decorating and meeting the clients.
What do you think is the best thing you have to offer to your clients?
Great tasting cake as well as a great looking cake.
What is your most popular cake flavor for a traditional wedding cake? What is the most unique flavor you have done for a wedding?
My most popular wedding cake flavor this year was red velvet with Bailey’s Irish Cream buttercream filling, because of it’s uniqueness.
What do you do in your free time- just for fun?!
In my spare time I love to cook and try new recipes.
