On a Personal Note

I have been married to Larry Mugeraner since 1996. Larry is my “right hand man”, he is an assistant at the shop, helping with making colors, rolling fondant, delivering. You name it, he knows his cakes. Oh, plus the big thing is he is a CPA, so you know who’s doing all the accounting stuff for me!

Larry and I adopted our daughter Miss Liberty Pauline from China at the age of 11 months in 2004. She “helps” out at the shop, well by being cute and by drawing, singing and such to keep me entertained as I work. We are very family oriented and love having the luxury of “bringing our daughter to work” when need be. Don’t be surprised to see a few toys around and a few child renditions of cakes around the shop.

I am an avid volunteer in the Oshkosh community. I volunteer for a variety of committees and groups and love being a part of making the Fox Valley a better place to live. Over the years I have been a part of Big Brothers/Sisters (know my little since she was 8 and now she is in her 20’s and we are doing ministry together), the Miss Oshkosh and Miss Wisconsin Pageants, Festival of Trees, The Women’s Division, Junior Achievement, local politics, teen and elementary school ministry and many, many more.

I love the Arts and the arts community, being involved in community projects such Festival of Trees, Sites of the Season and The Nutcrackers in the Castle. I teamed up with Nick Rogge and Ron Skubba to do a lion for The Pride of Oshkosh in 2004.

I am very openly passionate about International Adoption and believe that every child deserves to know the love of a family. I could talk about it for hours and feel so blessed to have followed the path to build our family. I am speaking to groups about the need for these families and hoping to do my little part to help all those children find families.
