Hi cake friends! Hope everyone's year has started off well. I'm pleased to introduce you to the December Who Takes the Cake Winner: HallieCakes! December's contest theme was the color red, and Hallie Siewert's red gaming cake definitely delivered!
Sony Playstation Controller Cake - it's Game Time!
Looks like you could just pick it up and start playing, right?! Pictured below is Hallie with her husband and two boys. Such a good looking family!
I asked Hallie to share a bit about herself and her business:
I was known as the dessert connoisseur at a very young age. I would always try new dessert recipes for family gatherings. My love for cakes began in elementary school, when I would get to bake a cake every time I went to my friend Cara’s house. Cara’s mom always kept the house stocked with cake supplies for us. I started doing elaborately decorated cakes for my sons’ birthday parties and holidays with the family. Friends wanted them and things began to expand. Thus a passion for baking was sparked. I enjoy the challenge of creating cakes. Finding the right recipe is important so that the cakes not only look good they taste great. Most of my cakes are all buttercream with fondant accents. I am self taught, like Rose, and just learn as I go. I now own HallieCakes, since January 2016, a custom cake shop built in my home by my husband and parents. I am married to Travis and have 2 boys, Carter, 10, and Evan, 6.
Congratulations again, Hallie! Be sure to visit her on her Facebook page, HallieCakes!
