About Anytime Cakes

 

Thanks so much for visiting my website!   Please allow me to introduce myself ó Iím Andrea Kojan, and Anytime Cakes is the name of my home-based, cake decorating business!  Welcome!

I've been baking and decorating cakes off and on for most of my life, but for the past few years it's become more of an ongoing passion of mine!  (Some might call it an obsession, but I just feed them some of my cake and they quiet down!) 

My Mom taught me to bake when I was a young girl (thanks, Mom!), and I've been expanding on that knowledge over the years by taking all sorts of cake-related classes whenever and wherever I am able.  I hope someday to be a full time cake decorator, maybe even have my own bakery and/or coffee shop, but for now, I must fit it in around my regular 9-5 job (which Iím also very grateful for!!). 

In 2008, I became a certified Wilton Instructor, and Iíve been teaching monthly cake decorating courses at the Michaels Arts & Crafts store in Sterling, Virginia.  I also occasionally teach privately at birthday parties and at Girl Scout events, as I really love working with kids.  I'm a proud member of ICES (International Cake Exploration Society), am a member of the planning committee for the annual National Capital Area Cake Show (located in Northern Virginia), and am totally addicted to the cake decorating message site "Cake Central".

I also do lots of other types of crafting -- I make beaded jewelry, do some decorative painting, decorate baby clothes and pretty much do anything I can thatís "crafty"!  My creativity comes directly from my Mom and Dad, and expressing it is truly a passion of mine.

These days I'm trying to learn as much as I can about HOW to officially -- and legally! -- run a cake decorating business from my home.  Meanwhile, I take sugar art classes, go to cake conventions and watch the Food Network Challenges over and over again to get my "cake fix."  I also surf the web and have many online "cyber friends" who love cake decorating as much as I do.  And I occasionally paint or make a beaded bracelet or a pair of earrings, just to keep in touch with the rest of my "crafty" side, too!

Please feel free to take a look around -- this site is pretty new for me, and things will probably keep changing for a while!  I hope you like what you see!!

Keep Celebrating!
