Hi! My name is Rebecca Kester and at 25 years old I am proud to say I have owned my own specialty cake shop, Daydream Cakes for two years. Almost 8 years ago I created this dream of owning a cake shop. I have always loved to create, I started with painting and drawing in high school then transferred to cake and sculpting, but no matter what creative project I am working on I always have music playing in the background. Music keeps me going when I am tired, and pumps me up when I am excited about a cake or project. I have found myself dancing many times alone in my small cake studio, just me and my music.

I used to mainly listen to the oldies, sticking with what I heard my parents listening to growing up. My Boyfriend of 3 years, Sean Morgan, has changed that, definitely broadening my music spectrum. He is a musician, after his day job he comes home usually going right to playing his guitar or ukulele. He listens to just about all genres of music which means I was too. I now appreciate and enjoy all the variety there is out there from folk, rap, classical, rock, oldies, pop and even a bit of country.

My playlist I have created is a collection of a few of my favorites that always put me in a good mood while I am working, cooking, or painting. I love how a song can transform your whole mood in just a few minutes.
