"I can't believe all of the cakes that are on here now; a virtual 'plethora' of cake decorating ideas.....Great job Lorelie and Wedding Cakes For You!!"~Colleen Charles, SweetCakes & CheeseCakes~


The vintage "1976 Wilton Yearbook" was one of my first learning tools, full of ideas and inspiration. After a few classes and mentors I slowly developed a unique style of my own. If you are new to this craft, you will probably follow a similar path.
Throughout this website you will find tutorials on how to make your own delicious culinary masterpiece, learn to make royal icing snowflakes, fondant ribbons and so much more.

I hope you enjoy browsing and please let me know if you would like to see something that is not covered. This site is a work in progress and a labor of love.. Contact me anytime. I look forward to hearing from you.
