My name is Judy and I am a cake instructor, who receives so very much self gratification from making cakes and flowers for my family and customers. My Shop has many gum paste flowers to embellish cakes, as well as cake toppers and cupcake toppers for weddings and special events, such as Baptisms, First Communion, Anniversaries, Baby Showers, and so much more. My passion does not stop there, I am adding children's cake toppers as well.



  1. I am so thankful that I have a wonderful husband, 4 awesome children and their spouses, and the most perfect 7 grandchildren. They all give me so much joy. I am thankful for my Lord and his promises. And...I am honored that my turkey was chosen to illuminate this page!
