Hey! I'm Ashlee, a self taught cake decorator and home chef. I adore food and not just food, but AMAZING food, food that tastes so good you could die happy. I discovered my love of from scratch baking and cooking when we were living overseas and I had to learn to make things that I missed from home (bagels, tortillas, bread...). As a stay at home mom to 5 kids I don't have the chance to attend culinary school, so I decided to learn through lots of research and even more trial and error.
On my blog, Ashlee Marie, and youtube channel I share recipes I've perfected and want to share. Not just the recipe but WHY that recipes works. My motto is "nothing in the kitchen is hard, with the right tips and tricks anyone can make anything". That applies to not only cooking and baking but also cake decorating!
I launched my youtube channel in march of 2015 and reached over 12,000 subscribers in one short year. My first video is still my most popular - how to make the perfect cheesecake (aka no cracking) tips and tricks that work for any recipe!
Where I share themed party food
And of course from scratch holiday favorites!
Last year I was also on Food Network's Halloween Baking Championship and not only recreated every recipe from the show on my channel but also appeared on every local TV station sharing favorite Halloween sweet! And I currently make an appearance on one of the local stations about once a month!
Some local appearances:
Homemade Marshmallows http://fox13now.com/2015/12/28/425142/
vampire bite cookies http://www.good4utah.com/good-things-utah/gtu-feat...
Mini ghost cakes http://kutv.com/features/food/recipes/chef-bryan-h...
My goal is to inspire and teach anyone out there that wants to make amazing from scratch food or cakes. To give them the tools and confidence to try something new and be proud of whatever deliciousness they've created!
