I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

I found this new blog a while back called Cake Wrecks (when professional cakes go horribly, hilariously wrong. I love this blog! They show pictures of cake disasters, as well as some really beautiful cakes. I worked as a cake decorator all through college and there was always that one cake decorator that made awful cakes (it was probably me). I hated when a customer would come in to pick up a cake and I would panic because when they gave me their pick-up slip I realized that the cake would have been made by the crazy cake lady that I worked with. I hated bringing the customer's cake out. I will always remember one cake that I did that was really bad. I was supposed to draw a horse on a cake....I can't draw!! It looked like a cross between a donkey and a goat. The guy that picked it up loved it (I have no idea why); I refused to charge him for it.
