Over the last several years I have made a lot of cakes. All of those cakes I have made and given away as labors of love because it was illegal to sell them in California. If you have followed me over the past year, you may be aware that I (along with many others) spent a lot of time at the state capitol speaking with senators, representatives, and writing the governor, trying to make it possible for people to make food items from home and sell them. On January 1, 2013, that dream became a reality, and son after I became the first Cottage Food Operation in Sacramento county!  Amber Gillespie's Cake Creations is a legally operating food facility!

So, this smokin' cake represents my very first sale! Thanks so much to a sweet and wonderful friend of mine who ordered this cake for her son's birthday this past weekend. Victor is currently studying to be a firefighter, so I thought it would be awesome to do some airbrushed flames around the cake and we re-created the logo from the Fire and Rescue facility where he is currently training.  I love how the flames just jump right off the black background!

Happy Birthday Victor! Good luck with your training and we are all very proud of you!
