Welcome!

This is my very first post here on my new blog, and I'm incredibly excited. Thanks to my awesome friend, Salt, I have this awesome logo, and I'm so appreciative of her graphic design work.

A little about me, I started baking about a year ago, and have been trying to challenge myself ever since. I got my start with a gift from my friend and coworker, the Brown Eyed Girls' Mom, who gave me a gift card to take a cake decorating class. My excitement inspired me to start with decorated sugar cookies, and now I do cakes and cupcakes, too. I've also learned a lot from Bridget at Bake at 350. My wonderful husband, Dan, and my coworkers love every bite of my new hobby. I've recently started bringing in some business and being able to expand on my skills, so I'm excited to start a blog and showcase all my creations.

The name of my little business is taken from our last name and our personal blog, Building a Kingston Castle. I clearly love purple, and Purple Castle Confections was born. Check out my side bar for dessert-related blogs I love and am inspired by. Thanks for coming by!

YEA! You're on your way. Can you make me some Halloween cookies for my work? Surprise me please. I just know this is going to be a successful family venture somewhere down the road. I love Salt's design.
