Hi! I am Khyria, the lady behind Pink Plate Meals and Cakes in Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental, Philippines. I specialize in making customized cakes, cupcakes, and sugar cookies for any occasion. I have been doing so for almost four years now, but I’ve only started my little cake shop in May 2013. Since we are already about to turn two years old this month, I decided that starting a blog would be a good way to celebrate and to mark this milestone.
I plan this blog to be my little piece of cyberspace where I talk about my journey as a self-taught cake decorator. I want to be able to encourage aspiring cake decorators to pursue their passion by sharing my struggles, achievements, experiences, and the lessons I have learned. I owe a lot of my success from other cake decorators who shared their knowledge and techniques over the Internet, and this is my little way of paying it forward. I would also like to be able to tell the stories behind my cakes: my inspiration, my clients’ requests and reactions, my preparations and my methods. I feel that this is how I could make people understand that I enjoy being a part of their celebrations and that making their cake dreams come true makes me happy too. This is not only a showcase of my previous work for potential clients who want to order cakes online; this is also my way of making a personal connection with them. I’d like them to know that I treat every request as a special project and that I take pride in the quality of my work. This blog will also help me document my journey as a cake decorator as I will share, from time to time, my works in the past when I was still starting in comparison to my recent cakes.
Feel free to browse through my posts, to comment, and to ask questions! I’m so excited to start blogging about my passion!
