Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Tanya. I am a wife and a mother to three beautiful boys, a self-taught baker, and a sewist. I am sharing my creative journey and hope to inspire others to dare to create. I promise lots of laughs along the way!

About the name ‘Stay Awake for the Cake’:
I named the blog from my baking experience. Anyone who has dared to venture into the world of novelty cakes understands the hours and hours it takes to bring a creation to life. My baking hobby began when my boys were still very young, and for many years I could only begin working on my projects after they were all tucked into bed. My husband would joke that I had to Stay Awake for the Cake!
