Proud to Serve

I’m not going to lie; I get a little choked up when we make wedding cakes for our country’s servicemen/women. Probably because I’m married to a former one myself. Just as the military itself is a bond like no other, so is the one formed with the spouses. So when Bailey asked us to make … Continued

glitter with a side of cake

If you’re a female reader, do you remember being a little girl and wanting everything to sparkle? Glitter with this, glitter with that? I remember.
