is creating unique tiered cakes for weddings and other functions. He has

smiling faces on happy customers.
He takes pride in designing cakes to
each customerís specifications by asking them what ideas the feel should
be incorporated and drawing a sketch to the approval of the customer.

in Fine Arts, with clay sculpture and pottery being his favorites, which
shows in his cake decorating, using frosting instead of clay.
