Critters and Cakes!
I decided to open Blackforestcake as a sweet sister to http://blacklilypie.etsy.com, my first Etsy shop that has been open since 2006.
This shop is a place for my softer and sweeter ideas. Less skeletons (ok a few skeletons) and more cupcakes and cats.
In 2013, I decided to add digital downloads to this shop. Previously it had been artwork and paper goods, but currently, I am working on only digital items.
I currently work in Ottawa, Canada. I like black licorice.
