Originally from the capital district, New York I have been a long since New York City transplant, having moved to the Metropolitan area in the great pursuit of art.  I put the paint brush and tap shoes away while in college, choosing to studying theatre.  I still have dreams to be a full time red-carpet-walking actress, and my day job is in fact managing the operations of a multi-theatre performing Arts venue.  The Arts are my everyday–though I will confess its not as romantic as it sounds.

A few years ago I found myself in need of a new challenge, a new environment, a change in atmosphere.  A few months later I was driving, solo across the counrty with Santa Fe, New Mexico as my final destination.  I worked by day at a local Music Festival and by night got to explore, with some wonderful friends, the small desert city. 

Surrounded by nomadic artists, a striking landscape, and amazing food I returned to New York refreshed and focused with a list of 101 things I would begin to pursue.  (For the 101 project click Here .) My list had lots of little things on it like, take a Dance Class, some big things like -Pay off my car loan.  And one important thing…Take a Cake decorating class. One class turned into four classes, turned into a hobby, turned into an artistic outlet/ obssession, turned into a part-time job decorating, turned into a part-time job teaching, has manifested as a blog/ website/ resources/ excuse to show off my work…so in short: 

The Cake Eccentric is my venture toward creative and artistic expression in the medium of Frosting, Fondant, and Gum Paste (and other edibles) on the canvas of Cake.  It is a personna;  Its a cake, Its a baking tip or trick, its a recipe; it is experiment. It is taking something ordinary and finding a way to make it extraordinary.
