About the Author
Author Mary Cesar is the owner of Mary's Cakes and Pastries, a specialty bakery that offers unique wedding cakes, grooms cakes and celebration cakes -- all baked fresh in historic downtown Northport, Alabama.
Before attending culinary school and starting baking, Mary was a management consultant in the Forest industry. In that job, she traveled a lot on business, over a million miles, and especially enjoyed peeking in the large windows of the bakeries and pastry shops in other countries, with the pretty rows of perfectly decorated pastries and intricately iced cakes.
So when she came to a career crossroads, she went south. To Alabama.
Mary's Cakes has turned into a popular bakery, where the locals love to come and get their coffee and a blueberry scone. They have a lot of regular customers whom they consider friends. Everything in the shop is made by hand in small batches. Mary's even has it's own blues song written by local blues artists Debbie Bond and Rick Asherson!
