“Hello, I am Andrea Howard and I want to thank you for stopping by my website. In addition to my passion for the culinary arts, there are several loves in my life. Of course, my family is at the very top of the list! My husband and I have been married for 20 years and have four children together - truly the most fun element in my life.
I have spent more than two decades exploring new methods in my kitchen and received many requests to take my recipes to a full-time venture; I obliged and chose to launch my couture cake company. I truly feel called to my work - I look forward to each cake consultation with anticipation of turning the confectionary dreams of my client into a reality.
Balancing my love of food (thankfully) is fervor for long-distance sports, particularly cycling. My first memory of serious biking began at the age of 13 during a family vacation that consisted of riding the beautiful Mackinac Island in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. From there, I continued on and in 2006 completed a 350-mile ride (over four days). In early 2008, I made my first attempt at running and participated in the Houston Half-Marathon (13.1 miles!) in Houston, Texas and was crazy enough to participate in the Oklahoma City Memorial Half Marathon in 2015.
We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you at your next event!"
