The first time I tasted one of these magical cakes, I was a guest alongside Jen Evans on WSPA. After the segment, everyone in the studio was fighting over bites of the cake. It was amazing and delicious, and you will never go back to a regularly made cake again. Jen also makes gluten-free cakes, and I’m guessing they won’t be the same disappointing kind I made once at home for a relative. Everything she makes is other-worldly and delicious!

One Last Word About Cakes.
The last year has been exceptionally hard for most if not all of us, for one reason or another. It’s not lost on me that a lot of people don’t have the money to spend on a fancy cake right now.
Can I share a secret with you?
I was a teenager before I had a professionally made cake, and some of my fondest childhood memories from birthdays are the cakes that my mother made me. She wasn’t a cake decorator, far from it, but those coconut-coated cakes and the ones decorated with animal crackers are the ones I remember fondly.
As will your children.
