Picture the Endless Possibilities!
My story began, when I was a child and visited my grandmother during the summer. She always made delicious, pretty cakes. My desire to create and bake delectable tasting cakes came from her. I baked cakes for years out of my house. Due to a lay off at Peabody CoalSales in 1994, I opened the Victorian Window (Bakery & Restaurant) in Charleston, WV. I operated the business for three years and had to close due to unfortunate circumstances. For twenty years, I have been employed as an administrative assistant where I gained extensive computer skills and knowledge. As time permitted, I took additional web designing and Picture Publishing classes at Web Tech University. Recently, I employed as a cake decorator for a major grocery chain. As part of my responsibilities, I decorate photo cakes. When the customers began asking me for special techniques to produce edible images for their cakes, I realized the potential for starting a business using my picture computer skills. I created the customer's special picture requests on my home computer. After I printed the pictures, I took it to work and scanned the pictures on the company scanner to print out on frosting sheets for the customer's cakes. To be honest, I was disappointed with the results that the grocery chain printer produced.
Viola! It is time to start my edible
photo imaging business!

The cake was amazing! Everyone was so impressed with how it turned out. And I think its safe to say everyone enjoyed the taste too because when I went looking for a second piece later in the day the cake was gone! My sister had a big cook-out and there was food everywhere, but the cake was the only thing that was completely gone!
Thank you so much for all your hard work on Kile's graduation cake. We truly loved it! I will be in touch as soon as I create a reason for another cake! Thanks!

Over a month ago I ordered a cake with picture - the airplane. I promised to tell you what everyone thought of the cake. As you probably knew, everyone was (a) amazed at the picture and (b) everyone loved the cake. The cake could have been average and it would have still been a success but we thought the cake was exceptional. My nephew was really surprised with the picture. We'll be a repeat customer. thank you

Dad's Birthday Party

This is one of many reasons why I enjoy Picture Perfect Cakes. A truly heartfelt story for Sarah to share with me. God sends people to us for a reason. God bless all!
The birthday party is on 5/5/13.
I must share this families story with you. On 4/7/13 the man in this picture was killed in a plane crash outside of Tulsa. His name is Chris G. The boy in the picture is Ethan, his son. Ethan requested a picture of his dad and him on his cake for his upcoming birthday. I told him "I can do that", and am blessed to be doing this cake for him. He was supposed to be on the flight with them, and last minute they decided he couldn't go. He has really been struggling with the "why did God take my dad". I clicked on your link God's Cake and had tears in my eyes. Of all the websites I could've chosen for an edible print, and I found this one. I believe our loved ones send us signs from heaven as a way to comfort. Thank you again.
