The recent economic crisis has cost millions of Americans their jobs and left the many graduating students pondering their next step. That was the scenario that graphic designer Jeanette Orazietti found herself in earlier this year when she lost her job.

Faced with the prospect of joblessness, Orazietti did what many designers do when times get tough - she got creative. From the brink of unemployment came Jeanette''s Custom Cakes, an at-home bakery business that allows Orazietti to utilize her skills as a designer to create confectionary works of art.

"I''ve found many of the skills I developed as a graphic designer to have been transferable to cake design," says the designer. "It''s exciting to be a part of a customer''s life for an important occasion. The goal of my work is to help create lasting and positive memories for these special times."

Orazietti crafts unique works that capture the passions and desires of her clients. Her website boasts a wealth of designs ranging from subdued birthday cakes with a floral theme to a more lavish, tiered wedding cake in the vein of the Beatles'' Yellow Submarine Cartoon.
