 ~~~ Gallery of Cakes ~~~ 

Welcome.  Below is a series of photos and links to cakes I’ve made, mostly for birthdays, beginning in 1992.  Adding the photos to this page (which I did today, 1/2/2020) was a sometimes kind of impressive and sometimes extremely hilarious stroll down memory lane.  There was a time – a few years – when I was making what seemed like a lot of cakes, and then the number shrank to just family birthdays for the most part.  And when I had my kids, sometimes that number was zero cakes in a year, or at least zero photographic evidence of cakes made and or decorated.  The last cake in this list is from 2011, and I can’t believe it was so long ago, but at the same time, I can.  Time has flown so fast – yes, that old cliché – and I look back at the pictures of my small children and can’t believe they’re both in high school now.  I have a ridiculous desire to curl up in a ball and close my eyes tightly and wish really really hard that we could all return to those days when the kids were little and always funny and cute (well, not always, but they were at least younger, and, by extension, so was I), but it doesn’t work.  Not that I’ve REALLY done anything like that.  Because that would be silly.
