My love for baking started at an early age...as soon as I could drag a chair over to "help" my mom in the kitchen... measuring and pouring, piping, and eventually learning to make buttercream roses. However, it wasn't until my children were born that I started creating edible art. What began as just birthday cakes for my boys quickly became cakes for friends, and soon their friends.

I sincerely thank the two most influential women of my life, my mom, Phyllis, and my grandma, Zell, for their inspirations and building the foundation of my Southern Roots and the true inspiration behind
