Ordering birthday cakes Corona CA

cake_2_2015-03-02_2012What is your story about birthday cakes? I don’t remember that we ever had a birthday cake for anyone in our family, including 4 girls, when we were growing up. When I was in the 6th grade, my mother surprised me on my birthday by bringing ice cream for the students in my class. A lovely memory.

When I had children I started making birthday cakes, especially since one of my sisters showed me the basics on decorating cakes. I had fun doing it. Share your stories with someone.

My birthday cake story continues with seeing what my daughter has done with birthday cakes. When her oldest daughter was two, she made a beautiful cake with fish on it. Every year, there were more cakes. And as the years went by, her cakes became even more delicious and spectacularly beautiful. Her creativity and investment in making the best tasting and best looking cakes began with a wedding cake for dear friends.

I think this is her 9th year in her Sweet Moments Dessert Company . Although making wedding cakes is probably her favorite order, she loves rising to the challenge of putting together something new for customers. Her Mockingjay cake stands out for me; as does her snake cake. You can view her gallery of birthday cakes and get an idea of the range of cakes she’s made.
