Sugar is essentially on my mind NON-STOP. Imagine a nonstop, little cartoon “thought bubble” over my head that always has CAKE in it! You can call me a cake head, a sponge head, or a sweetie pie… or just Avalon. 🙂
So how did I become so obsessed with sugar?!
Well, this story does NOT begin with me covered in flour at the young age of five. Don’t get me wrong, I always LOVED sweets. Heck, I’d push a plate of spaghetti right off the table if it meant I could have a scoop of ice cream (yet, that rarely happened, go figure). My love for creating art began as young as I can remember. I would buy a comic book, not to read, but to try and redraw the characters. My love of baking was awakened at age fifteen, the moment I stepped into my first job as a bakery counter clerk. However, the TRULY special “AH-HA” moment happened when I realized cake and art could work hand in hand, like a beautiful co-mingling of two souls fated to be together…. *sigh*
From the moment I realized cake and art came together so perfectly, and could be so satisfying, not only to me but to my customers, I was FULL STEAM AHEAD! I created Avalon Cakes as a cake studio that made custom cakes for any type of special event.
Now, more than 10 years later, I have baked, iced, carved, modeled, manipulated, defied gravity and ate OH so much cake. I love how versatile it is as a medium. I tapped into so many art forms with cake; sculpting, painting, sketching, abstract, realism, cartoon, etc.
Now, most of all, I enjoy teaching and sharing with others the knowledge and experiences I have gained over the years. My aim through this platform is to share and create a community of like-minded artists with passion for their craft, for us all to tap into our inner artists and flourish our careers into something that feeds our creative souls, while also making our customers extremely happy.
