My name is Veronica and I own Southern Gold Leaf Cakes. I opened my home-based business in 2008. I am a licensed and inspected home bakery specializing in custom cakes. Since all cakes are made to order there are no frozen cakes here, only fresh and only home made. I am a self-taught baker but I have a strong art background with years of baking experience. It is the most rewarding feeling in the world when you can apply your skills to do something you love. To see my cake creations and view our yummy menu visit us at www.southerngoldleafcakes.com!

My DIY bride!

 I had the extra ordinary pleasure of meeting a great couple this week.  I was a DIY bride and so I understand completely the reasons behind it.  Sometimes it's budget, other times a level of control but ultimately you just want to be involved in every part of the process.

 This wonderful bride-to-be has done what I've seen few do; managed to not over micro-manage and remain a pleasant person to be around.  She's not trying to make her dress or her cake (good for me) but she is looking into her own accessories, table decor and so forth.

At the consultation she was such a blast!  Because of her pleasant personality and her willingness to share many of the ideas for the reception, we were able to create some really great ideas for the decorations on her cake and the fact that she was open to just about any idea was great.

It doesn't happen often but thank goodness when it does.
