Dream Job: Woman becomes a cake decorator for a day

(WXIA) -- Regina Poole loves to bake.

"To me, cakes and cupcakes and things like desserts are associated with happy times," she said.

She's always wanted to take her basic baking skills to a much higher level.

"My dream job is to be a cake decorator, to learn how to do the designs on the cake," she said.

11Alive chief meteorologist Chris Holcomb wanted to make Poole's dream come true for a day. He met her at Cake Art in Tucker, a store that carries everything a budding baker could possibly need. It also holds cake decorating classes.

Poole got her own personal cake decorating course with Cake Art owner Teresa Parker, learning the art of cake decorating from the ground up. She practiced secret techniques the pros use -- ones that made a homemade birthday cake for her husband look like a bakery masterpiece.

Although she found the icing roses challenging to create, Poole will get another opportunity to practice them. She received a Cake Art gift card, putting her well on the way to achieving the job of her dreams.
