Hello CupCake Lovers!

Hi, my name is Deb and I am the stay home mom of three children, living in the midwest, and I love to decorate CUPCAKES!

Challenged by the recent poor economy, I decided that sharing something I enjoy doing, decorating, might eventually grow into a way for me to help support my family. I thought perhaps I could share my love for decorating, in easy, simple to follow steps, and other moms could learn and do the same kind of creative designs for their own family. Maybe this will encourage someone else to take a hobby they enjoy to a new level, even if it has nothing to do with cupcakes.

Right now this is all a learning process for me. While I have been active online for some time (I even worked as a blogger for a year), I don’t know much about producing videos and building a following. I would like to learn, and I would also like to invite you all to be a part of my personal journey. I will be posting how to, instructional videos on youtube, and blogging here about cupcake designs I have found interesting. I would additionally like to review cake decorating and baking related products, and share those with my readers, along with some cool give aways. I will also be commenting and sharing links on twitter at “chubcuppycake”. (*note that is chub-because "chubby" was in use).

Years ago and B.C. (before children) I was actually a professional cake decorator for a major grocery chain. I did that for about 7 years and enjoyed it very much. Right now, since my kitchen is so small, I can only decorate cakes and cupcakes for my close friends and family, but I wanted to share my ideas with more people if possible. Beginning this venture will hopefully help me make new friends, and will encourage other moms to try their hand at cupcake decoration (or whatever hobby they enjoy).

So thank you for finding me! Please stick around to see how this idea comes together. The progress might be slow, but who knows where it will take us. If you have ideas or questions along the way, I would love to hear from you!

Till next time,
