Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
Belated Birthday Cakes
The cakes themselves were on time, or pretty close, but I'm about a month late posting the photos. The first one was my first go at poured ganache (over a chocolate orange cake), and wouldn't you know it...the cake split right down the middle! So I planted a happy little flowering fondant tree on it. Tree and flower centers are freehand; everything else is with Lindy Smith cutters. The second one was snickerdoodle with cinnamon extract rather than cinnamon in the buttercream frosting so it'd be white. Cutouts are again with Lindy Smith cutters.
