How The Butter End came to be…
When I moved from NY to LA in 2008, I thought a change of pace was in order from corporate life in NY… perhaps a continued pursuit of a career in “the biz”……but then, a year into my stay, cancer paid me a visit.
Instead of wondering who would cast me bald, I embraced this insane creative energy that was stirring in me and directed it into the kitchen and into my new found love of decorating cakes. I lost myself in creating and testing new recipes and learning how to decorate.
The creative outlet that designing cakes gave me was a life-saver….and the reaction from people who see and eat the cakes is just as good – if not better – than any applause on any stage.
This business kind of found me. A year after starting to make cakes, I found a magical big building in Santa Monica where I built my dream kitchen. (Cancer makes you do brave things!) Now it’s “the shop”….my home away from home, and my source of joy.
I feel lucky. And happier than ever.
