So there’s this mom in our homeschooling group (CHESCA) who makes these bea-u-t-i-ful cakes and I wanted to share her talent with you. And, I went a little crazy picking out pictures from her website and Facebook Page.
Her name is Erica Fill of Designs by E and she works out of her home. She and her husband have been homeschooling their children for six years now.
Anyways, I haven’t had the pleasure of eating any of them – yet, but I understand she can fill them with wonderful things like peanut butter, strawberry and raspberry filling made with REAL pb/fruit; mocha cream, mint buttercream, chocolate fudge and caramel too.
Erica makes cakes for birthdays, weddings, baby cakes and more. Besides the pictures at her website I linked to already – you’ll find that Baby Bump cake and many more at her Facebook page Designs by E.
“I am a 1999 graduate of BGSU… I got my degree in Art Education. I taught art at Waterloo Primary for about 3 years before Josi came along, giving up my position 2 weeks before she was born. I guess I still kind of use my degree when I’m homeschooling. We have two girls – Jocelyn (Josi) is 10 and Mischa is 8. We’ve been homeschooling for six years.
“I’ve always been ‘artsy,’ so when Josi needed a first birthday cake I opted to make it myself…. buying a fancy cake wasn’t in the budget!! It just kind of took off from there. A few friends asked me to make cakes for them and here we are today.
I love doing weddings most, but birthday cakes are fun too. I like to work with chocolate and chocolate clay for details.”
I just wanted Erica to share a bit about herself.
Aren’t these cakes AH-mazing? I’m just blown away by her talent. If you’d love to have one of her cakes and you live in/near Stark County contact her.
Erica lives in Stark County (NE Ohio) and can be reached by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) .
