I took my first cake decorating class in November, 2007. From the very first class, I was hooked! I made my first wedding cake in June, 2008. After that, there weren't many occasions to make decorated cakes. I made cakes for fun and practice and regularly foisted them onto my coworkers and a group of local volunteers. My friends and family all got seriously over the top birthday cakes; even a wedding cake or two.
Then, I discovered a whole new world...cake decorating competitions! I’ve won or placed in competitions at the Colorado State Fair, the El Paso County Fair, Denver’s Sweet Times in the Rockies Cake Show, local live challenges, and in online competitions. My work has been featured in magazines and other industry publications; I’ve even been invited to preview new cake decorating products.
Once the Colorado Cottage Food Bill passed in March of 2012, it meant that I could take my hobby to the next level. The next level, for me, was to sell just a few really special cakes a year.
Iced and Dazzle has grown to more than just a few cakes a year, but I keep true to my original vision of limited cakes, focusing 100% on every last detail of each and every cake.
I look forward to working with you to create a cake that will DAZZLE!
I'm Linda, and when you choose Iced and Dazzle for your Colorado Springs wedding cake or special occasion cake, you choose me, from measuring the first cup of flour, to the final placement of the final detail. No assistants, no interns, just me. Who am I?
