about me....
I began decorating cakes as a hobby in the fall of 2000,
and I quickly realized that I discovered
something I truly enjoyed doing!  
While I've been baking most of my life,
decorating my baked goods was such a pleasure,
and I enjoyed brightening the days of my friends and family
with desserts that looked pretty, as well as tasted great.

Six months after I began decorating, I was hired to teach Wilton Cake
Decorating.  Over the course of 5 years,  
I taught more than 350 students.

September 2003 brought another turn of events...
I left a 20 year career in Accounting and returned to school.
I received degrees in both
Culinary Arts and Professional Baking
at Manchester Community College.

May 2004 - construction began on a licensed kitchen.
September 2004
Diane's Sweet Treats
officially opened for business.  
I am licensed by the State of Connecticut.

January 2016 -
I've been hired to teach Icing Artistry 1 at
Manchester Community College!
I love being back at MCC
sharing my knowledge with 15 eager students.

I have attended conferences sponsored by the International Cake
Exploration Societé in Las Vegas NV, Washington DC, Kansas City MO,
Grapevine TX,  Omaha NE,
St. Charles IL,  Charlotte NC and Lexington KY.
