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!

Who makes your birthday cake?

It seems like this would be obvious but, alas, it still gets asked of me.  Now, if I had tons of money I would commission a cake from one of many fellow bakers whose work I know to be at my own standards.  This would be a way to get it as close to my own baking as possible.  I use it as an excuse to try experimental recipes or just go simple. 

I've had cookies, old fashioned ice box cakes, ice cream cakes, and so on.  It's kind of like asking the mechanic who fixes his car.  If it's something you can do yourself, most of the time you do.
