The name Cake Student is inspired by my mom, a professional baker and cake decorator. When I was a kid, my siblings and I would often sit around the table and watch as my mom worked her magic. If we were lucky, she would trim the uneven edges to make the cakes level and we would get to eat them. When mom looked the other way we would swipe a royal icing flower or stick our finger in the frosting bowl. Shockingly, we are quite healthy and still have all our own teeth. Life was pretty sweet.
I grew up and became a software engineer, married a software engineer, and we have 2 awesome little kids. While hubby works crazy hours for a start up company in San Francisco, I took time off to become a food blogging, mini-van driving, soccer mom.
Cake Student is me, Sarah, trying my best to prepare healthy, delicious, and/or quick meals for my family. But my favorite projects are the sometimes quirky (but always delicious) baking I do with my kids. I want them to have childhood memories of being with their mom in the kitchen, being up to their elbows in flour, licking frosting from spatulas, and smelling something mouthwatering coming from the oven.
