Belle’s Bakery

See that cute little rolley polley, up there, the one with the chocolate cake bowl on her head?  Yup, that is me!  Every since I was young, I loved cake!  If it was helping my mom make (and destroy) a cake, playing in the empty bowls and making a total mess, or sitting down and eating it, I was totally on board.  When I was young, my mom made custom cakes and I guess that skill somehow carried over to me.

I have been making custom cakes and cupcakes for several years now, probably around 6 years.  I look back at some of my first creations and I cringe, but with practice, I continue to increase my skill set.

One part of the mental break down of 2016 that really hurt me was that I lost my creativity.  All the many, many hours I had spent in years prior building my craft and bam!! They all seemed to go away in an instant.  It took nearly two years for the creativity to return and so far, I am very happy with the work that I have been producing.

The thing I love the most about making cakes, is that you can turn practically nothing, into something beautiful and edible, something that serves multiple purposes.  Cakes have been around for years and years and help us to celebrate occasions of all sorts.  They serve to give us nourishment (they do have eggs in them!) and they also can serve as a decoration, most commonly as a centerpiece.  For me, to be able to take something that is granular and turn it into a master piece makes me giddy.

I have created this page on my blog post to share my creations.  Baking and creating custom cakes is also a self-care technique for me, and it is something that my therapist and doctors support as part of my ongoing care and maintenance for the bipolar, depression, PTSD, anxiety and eating disorder.

May your day be filled with sprinkled covered cupcakes,

–Michelle
