That Takes The Cake in Austin, TX
Hi, my name is Bethany and I am a cake artist from the great state of Texas! I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Psychology. I have two daughters, Kenslie, who is 15 years old and Kali, who is 13, and my youngest, an 11 year old boy, Keaton, who always keeps me on my toes.
In July 2011, my son looked at me with his big blue eyes and asked me to make him a Lightening McQueen cake for his birthday. Up until then, I had only baked out of a box, I had never heard of fondant, and I had to ask someone what confectioners sugar was!! So what did I do? I googled, and googled, AND googled! I found some great tutorials and I was off! After 21 hours of baking, coloring fondant, and decorating, I finally finished my first cake! I couldn't wait to see Keaton's reaction, it alone made every minute worth it! I posted the cake on Facebook and the next thing you know, I had orders. Now here I am a TLC and Food Network Cake artist, learning one cake at a time, doing the job of my dreams and loving every second of it!!
