Ashley Green, of @its.a.cakematter, recently invited us into her kitchen to see where and how the magic happens. Yes, her work tastes as good as it looks on Instagram.
Ashley’s cakes are totally homemade. This one features her famous vanilla cake (secret ingredient: buttermilk) and buttercream frosting. “My mom always made amazing cakes for us as kids,” she says. “She grew up on a farm and everything was always made from scratch.”
It’s a Cake Matter is Ashley’s second career, which she pursued after serving in the U.S. Army. “It’s something that I absolutely love to do,” she says. “It makes me happy and let’s me zone out and focus on something that makes other people happy, too.”
