Cakes, Cakes and Mo Cakes!

When you bake the cakes they will come! Yes, Von’s Sweet Thangs is all the buzz. I am doing it and I love it! This past weekend I created a fondant covered white cake,  spades inspired; with a buttercream border.


I have always been crafty. Since a child I remember on several occasions I would always get in my mom’s kitchen and make a yellow box cake with chocolate frosting! That was my staple cake. Arts, crafts, DIY’s, baking and decorating, that’s my jam. I get into my zone and I just flow. I don’t like to stop until the deed is done. It’s like therapy and I’m in a good space when I perform my magic.

I have an upcoming kid’s party in which I will be making and designing the backdrop and treats for the kids. There will be chocolate covered pretzels, oreos and rice krispy treats all minion themed. Shoot, I think I’m more excited about it than the kids. It’s funny how little things such as this makes me smile inside. I have put what I enjoy as my passion which was a hobby into a business.


I’m here to bring the Sweet Thangs, so ask somebody that knows somebody that needs somebody. Get your sweet on!

The Year Of No Fear. The Making Of Von’s Sweet Thangs

Happy Sunday! What a good day that it is. I went to service this morning and got a dose of the Word for my spirit. It’s always good to feed the soul since we are spiritual beings ya know.

I’m also excited because we are having a babyshower get-together for my son and his girlfriend. We will be welcoming baby Kairo into the world coming in a few weeks. I had the pleasure of making my lil man a pillow cake which I am super excited about. Its a blue velvet cake and vanilla cake that I can’t wait to tear into it.



The pillow looks so comfy as though it is the real thing. I did my thang with this one. I’ve actually started Von’s Sweet Thangs, my sweet business where I want to put my talent and hobby into full gear. I have been allowing my fear to get in the way but I said shoot not anymore. I love to bake, I enjoy creating, I love sweets so why the hell not. So, this is the year of no fear ya heard? Lol.

Well let me get my baked beans out the oven and start on these deviled eggs.


Who Said Better Late Than Never!?

Well it’s Monday morning the day after Superbowl Sunday and if you’re like me you know what that means. Tired and sleepy. But, a lady has to do what a lady has to do and get that m-o-n-e-y! In a  few months it will be my birthday and I want to party like it’s l999. No, for real that was a good year for me, young and ripe. LOL! With 4 children already I might add, but that’s another story.

For my birthday my girls and I plan on going to New Orleans, a girls trip. In my forty plus years of living I have not been to Louisiana and I’m excited about it. My young ladies are ages 22 and 27 and I always get that “you don’t look like you have kids that old” saying. Well that’s what happens when you start early to get them out the way. The excitement of it all actually comes because this will be the first time we will have gone on a trip to spend mother and daughter time together, in which I’m not proud to say.  It should not have taken this long to begin to do something like this with my girls. I guess there is always a season for everything, right? Well the season begins in 2018 baby, mama gonna get her sexy back! Don’t believe me just watch!

The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me! Sometimes you just wanna talk. As I contemplated on the decision to create a blog I knew I had some things to say. My story of beauty, strength and survival in all aspects of my life to be told. From cancer survival, being in a twenty year marriage, not living my life to the fullest thus far to what I plan on changing as a woman in her mid forties. So if you’re ready to talk, for real, buckle up and enjoy the ride!
