Guest Blog: Cakes

Ever wonder where all of my creative ideas started? You may remember my mom from one of the first posts on Messhall to Bistro. She taught me all the basics in the kitchen, and is the reason I can keep all the bellies full and happy in my house now. I can also blame her for my lack of measuring skills. She taught me how to get the feel for recipes, and use my senses rather than mathematics to cook. So without further ado, meet the Mom.

Beyond dinners and brunches, she also does cakes. Meet Bobbi, a "forever 29" baker, quilter, and mom.

I've always like to cook and bake. I used to sit and watch my grandma as long as she'd let me be in the same room.She was my mentor and inspiration to be a better cook and baker. Through the years, I've broadened my horizons a least in the kitchen! These are some of my recent efforts.

Like what you see? Bobbi is located in East Central Indiana and can be reached at

WOW! Those cakes looks great! My mom used to make cakes. When we were little she made ALL the cakes for the families children. It was so much fun. I love to bake homemade cakes for everyone now but I can't quite decorate them with the same beauty she did. Thanks for stopping by and following me! :)

Yum! They look great. Love the decorating. I took a couple decorating classes, but never got near the professional looking cakes here.

I’m having a new link party “Cheap Thrills Thursday” starting the 29th. It’s for creative ideas that cost under $20. If you have a project you’d like to share, I’d love for you to stop by and join in!
