My cousin Otavia started decorating cakes when still in her teens. She enjoyed doing really complicated designs that took days to finish and as she grew older she started decorating cakes for family and friends. That was her hobby. As a profession she got a law degree and started working as a lawyer in a family law firm but her heart was not in it. I always thought she should devote herself to her cake decorating business and I’ve now heard that’s the way she has decided to go. She’s only 27 and I’m sure she’ll be quite successful!
She has recently started a blog dedicated to her cake decorating, click here to see it. Here are some of her recent creations:
The cake above was done for the birthday party of a two-year old girl who loves her Maltese dogs. Notice how the candles were incorporated into the design.
This one was done for the birthday of someone who was into crafts, particularly patchwork. It’s one of my favourites!
Isn’t she amazing? I’m very proud of my little cousin…
