About Lyn, How it All Started
Hello and thank you so much for taking the time to visit my website, my name is Lyn de Jesus and I love decorating cakes and cupcakes. So why cakes and cupcakes, I guess I’d have to say it all started when I was 8 years old and my mom had just returned from a week in Chicago. At the time my mom was a nurse but had decided she wanted to do something different; she spent that week in Chicago attending a Wiltons cake decorating class. When my mom returned home it was time to practice, and practice she did. It wasn’t long before my sister and I wanted to join in, what 8 year old could say no to royal icing.
Now we were not decorating cakes, we were decorating the kitchen table covered in butcher paper. My mom taught my sister and I how to use all the decorating tips and how to decorate a cake with the basic decorating techniques. My mom was doing so well selling decorated cakes out of her kitchen she decided to open her own bakery.
At the age of 9 I was decorating cakes, by the time I was 14 I was decorating wedding cakes and delivering them in our big step van. While I loved decorating cakes, eventually I graduated high school and then college. Like my mother I had decided to become a nurse and left the bakery to pursue nursing full time.
Why Cake Decorating For Kids
Now, many years later, after decorating a cake for my mom for mothers day I began to look back on all those days spent in the bakery and remembered how much I loved the creativity that came with decorating cakes. I started decorating more cakes for my friends and then I started decorating cupcakes from ideas I got after spending way too much time on Pinterest.
And that takes us to today. I decided to create Cake Decorating For Kids because I remember how much I loved decorating cakes as a kid and I know it can be a fun activity the entire family can share together. Now the best part about it is, no matter how the cake or cupcake turns out you can always eat it, that’s what I do. With the cake decorating tools and techniques available today the types of creations that are possible are endless; the only limit is your imagination. What I find most joyful about the whole process of starting a cake decorating project is sharing the results with my friends and family. Everyone deserves a treat and no matter your age or what you think your’re capable of there’s a project made just for you.
At Cake Decorating For Kids my goal is to share my more than thirty years of cake and cupcake decorating experience with you, so that you and your children can have a great time making some sweet memories while having a lot of fun. For you parents looking for a fun and educational experience to share with your kids, think of how much fun it would be to decorate a cake or cupcakes for mothers day or fathers day, or any special occasion.
While there are plenty of places on the web teaching how to decorate cakes and cupcakes, here at Cake Decorating For Kids I focus on developing projects that are fun and easy for the entire family. Today there are so many different ways to decorate a cake and many of them can easily taught to kids of all ages. Just remember, it’s all about learning, having fun and spending quality time together. So let’s get started, your next decorating project is waiting.
