Ever since my first Easy Bake Oven, I loved the process of baking little cakes to give to my family members and friends. It was something about seeing their faces light up with joy from receiving a little cake, frosted to the best of my 6 year old ability. Seeing their expressions made me proud I baked something that made them happy. One of my fondest cake baking memories was created as a result of my mother crying. I know raising two little girls, on her own, wasn't a piece of cake. I baked one of my special Easy Bake Oven cakes for her. It was the very thing that lifted her spirits and put a smile on her face. Most of the frosting had melted onto the dinner plate, due to the fact that this 6 year old was unaware cakes require cooling before frosting. Nevertheless, seeing how the cake put a smile on her face was priceless! Now years later, I still love baking those little cakes and watching them magically turn frowns into smiles. Yes, I've learned to let them cool before frosting.
Why little cakes? Because it's the little things that mean so much to a heart and soul in need of love. Nothing says, I love you… You're not forgotten… I'm here for you… You're not alone… more than a homemade cake baked from scratch just for you. My treasured childhood pass-time has finally become a made to order gift cake business. I call it LaCake Petite which provides 5inch little gift cakes baked from scratch in various flavours. As a lover of life, I know this to be true… As long as there are people on this earth, they will celebrate those special moments that define the milestones in the lives of those they love....whatever the occasion, with cakes always be at the heart of it. Why? It's simple - Because of Love~LaShaun Jackson,
