Welcome to “The Blog”!

Allow me to introduce myself:  I’m Rose Brown, and I am first and foremost an artist.  I have always been one.  Drawing and painting mostly, but I have always dabbled in art of some kind.

Off and on during my life I have also played around with cakes – decorating them, baking them and eating them – of course!  A couple of years ago, I decided to pick my piping bag up and play again with cake and frosting.  I had been enjoying all of the shows on baking competitions and amazing cakes and decided to try my hand.  Little did I know that I would be hooked, more than ever!

So, since then I have been continuing to play with baking and decorating, and there are so many areas of caking to explore – I feel like I have just unearthed the tip of a very big iceberg.  I started my own custom cake business in 2016, and now for 2017 I’m starting this blog to share more than just a picture here and there on social media.

There are many blogs out there on cake, cake art and decorating, so I thank you for spending some of your very precious time with me and my Shiny Ball Blog!
