I see photo updates on my Facebook news feed from Creative Cakes by Lynn and I am always floored! How does she do that? The attention to detail, creativity and sometimes whimsical designs of Lynn always surprise me. Always an artist, she couples her design skill with great tasting baking. Lynn has grown her own business and her personable customer service coupled with her talent makes her a reputable ‘cake boss’! That’s why I couldn’t wait to tell you about her and her work!
