For February’s Feature Friday I bring you Gwen from Gwen’s Cake Decorating!!
Random fun interesting fact- Gwen lives on (and operates!) on the same street as my mother in law!! She has an industrial kitchen right in her garage, how awesome is that! Gwen first began decorating cakes for her kids which grew to family and friends and then eventually it grew into strangers and then into a licensed business! What began as birthday cakes and cupcakes has grown into beautifully elegant wedding cakes (she won the Best of Weddings from the Knot in 2013!) Because Gwen has her fantastic studio/kitchen right in her home she can bake cakes anytime of day (or night!) When you meet for a tasting or consultation you walk into her beautiful sprawling ranch located right outside Saline. Once inside you can see many of her sample cakes, photo albums of past cakes as well as other examples of her exemplary work!
She said there have been many weekends where her and her two assistants will be delivering 8-10 wedding cakes in addition to the ump-teen birthday cake and cupcake orders! And if that isn’t impressive enough she once filled an order for St Joesph Mercy Hospital for over 1,000 cupcakes! Aren’t these cakes just beautiful!! And these are just sample cakes! Her real cakes are even more impressive!Another fun random fact is while Gwen loves to bake and decorate cakes her favorite hobby is scuba diving!! How neat is that!? She was certified in Cozumel and regularly takes scuba excursions!If you are in need of a wedding, birthday, graduation or just a regular old cake Gwen is the place to go! Not only does she do typical cakes, ones with fruit fillings but she also can accommodate gluten free (I know where my birthday cake is coming from 🙂 !!)
