About Me

I am a mother of 3 amazing boys ages 19, 17, and 8. I am a very proud wife of 20 years, to a retired Navy man. Those things are first and foremost in my life.

I have always loved food, but my passion really kicked in when I had to learn how to bake and decorate a cake for my son’s Cub Scout project. Looking up how to decorate a cake, I instantly fell in love. Ever since then I literally dream of new recipes, most are dessert based but I am an amazing cook as well as baker. I have a notebook beside my bed to take dream notes. I adore sharing my food passion with the world, I am creative and have built a fan base that is loyal, goes back to my recipes often and continues to grow each month.

Now I develop recipes for Imperial Sugar on a regular basis and enjoy the process IMMENSELY!   I was the baker/creator for all of the desserts and baked goods for an acclaimed bistro in Maine for a year before starting my own dessert catering business. I created all of the recipes for my business, as well as baking, designing, networking, marketing and finances. . In April of 2010 I competed as an assistant on a Food Network Cake Challenge, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. We were tasked to create Belle.

I started my blog in 2006 and have built my readership to an average of over 32,000 unique visitors a month. My recipes have been featured on Babble.com, The Huffington Post Taste, Bella Nutella just to name a few. I was recently a ghost writer for a cookbook where I wrote more than 100 original recipes and I am currently making the final revisions on my own cookbook proposal.


As of today I have 4001 twitter followers but it increases every day.


I have 2950 Facebook Fans.


Today I have 865 followers on Instagram and that too increases every day.


So there you have it.

    Hello, I recently become a very popular fan of making cupcakes and cake pops. I have made some for my daughters bday parties and family as well. So here is my question to you, How can I make infused alcohol cupcakes for my husband for his birthday this month on the 26th. I have looked and looked for recipes but cant seem to find one.

    He loves Crown Royal, and I would love to make him some for him and a couple of friends. I saw your Jack Daniels recipe. Can you help? Thanks a bunch

      You can absolutely make the Jack Daniels recipe replaced with the Crown Royal. It would be delicious :)

    L.O.V.E. your blog! I always find tasties to try out on my boyfriend and friends :) I was wondering though, you had some really good lemon cookies that were made with fancy olive oil. I made them last year before I moved back to Montana and I think my print out of the recipe got lost in the shuffle! I can’t for the life of me find the recipe anymore, do you have it on hand still?

    • fieldsofcake says:

      It’s still in my blog. If you search olive oil, they should pop up. They were made with Nudo Lemon Olive oil, but if you amp up the juice just a bit and use regular olive oil, they are still delicious.

      Oh, I wish I could. I ADORE Raechel!! I am living in Montana now and the delivery for that cake would be a little too far for me. Please give her a big hug for me?
