My name is Bridget. I am a stay at home mom with 2 beautiful little boys and I have a part-time job, which I do from home thanks to the genius of the Internet! I am married to a great guy (and tech support for this site:) Alex. We live together in the ‘Great White North’ of Canada, about an hour outside of Toronto.
I was born and raised in the warm sunshine and blue waters of the Caribbean. When I finished high school in Barbados, I went away to the US for university – where I obtained my BS in Restaurant, Hotel, Institution & Tourism Management from Purdue University.
As soon as I graduated, I moved back to Barbados to get away from the cold and snow of the Mid-West! I then met and married Alex, who is also from Barbados, and we had both of our sons while living there.
I went back to work full-time after the birth of each child, as the Marketing Manager for a tour company in Barbados. Although going back to work was not something I wanted to do, I was lucky enough to have help at home to watch the kids, clean the house and cook the meals – and that part was SWEET!
In 2007 my husband found a job here – so, even though my island girl body physically rejects any temperatures under 75′F – we now we live in Canada!
Since moving here I have been home with our kids full-time and the ‘help’ I had in Barbados with the kids, house and meals is nowhere in sight! And while there is a definite possibility that I could lose my mind most days, I absolutely love being home with my kids. Being home has also afforded me the time to find that I am a bit of an artist… I love abstract painting, crafts and building all kinds of things.
One of my favorite creative outlets is making novelty cakes. I try to create cakes that are as appealing to your eye as it will be to your tummy! If you have to look at my cake twice before realizing it`s a cake – that is best compliment I could get! I have been doing this for special occasions, for family and friends for about a year now, and have been having a blast doing it! Thanks to all of the encouragement I`ve gotten – I`ve decided to give baking cakes for other people a try:)
I can`t wait to make a cake for you!
