Ten Questions With Wanda of Wanda’s Cakes

1. Describe yourself in three words:

Three words…driven, meticulous, patient

2. Why did you choose to work in the wedding cake industry?

 I have a masters degree in elementary education, teaching second grade in Howard Couny, Md. One of the other teachers brought in the cakes that she had made in her basic cake decorating class and offered to teach the other teachers after school. Being pregnant with my first son, I wanted to know how to do his birthday cake, never went back to teaching and the rest is history. He Is 35 plus.. that’s 35 years of cakes!

What do you love most about your job?
The brides!

4. What inspires you?

A happy bride inspires me and keeps me going!

5. Share one of the most memorable projects you took part in and why it was so special.

I have donated a cake to our church Habitat for Humanity auction for over 20 years and the cakes generate a big revenue for a great cause.

6. Complete this sentence, “If I did not work in the wedding industry, I would…..”

…retire!

7. How would you describe your style?

Simple but elegant.

8. What advice would you give to brides and grooms on choosing a baker?

Do whatever makes you happy! It is your day!

9. What advice would you give to brides and grooms on the wedding planning process in general?

Do whatever makes you happy! It is your day!

10. Lastly for fun, if they made a movie of your life,which actor would you want to play you?

Meryl Streep because I look somewhat like her!
