CAKE CRAFTS ARTIST OF THE MONTH - amy goff
Amy Goff, born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, has loved to bake & experiment in the kitchen from a young age. The kitchen was put on the back burner during early adulthood, but after giving up a career in Banking and Finance to be a stay at home mom to her children, she found time to re-new her love for baking. Although she had never used fondant before, she decided she was going to try and make her children their own fondant birthday cakes. She watched a few tutorials, began practicing and quickly fell in love with being able to create and design marvelous creations from scratch.
Amy loved cake decorating so much she joined a charity that provides birthday cakes to children and seniors with social or economic disadvantages. This gave her the opportunity to fine tune her skills and give back to her community at the same time.
