Hi everyone, my name is Kim. A few years ago, I wanted to get a cool custom cake for my husband’s birthday, but I couldn’t afford the high bakery prices for all of that fancy fondant work. In a true Tim Gunn “make it work” moment, I Googled how to make fondant, baked hubby a really cool cake and started off on an accidental baking journey.
I made cakes for about a year, until I stumbled into the world of cake pops. After months of getting frustrated by the expense, mess and waste of Styrofoam, I collaborated with my dad, a master woodworker, and we built a wooden stand to hold my pops while I decorated them… cue my Oprah “aha!” moment! (I have many tv-inspired moments).
Confident that I wasn’t the only frustrated cake pop maker, I founded KC Bakes, a custom cake pop stand business, and I am loving getting to know cake pop makers from all over the world.
This is my blog to share baking tutorials, tips and inspiration, as well as other general musings that I find interesting. Thanks for stopping by!
