|Diane Mora's cakes are gallery-worthy|
Mora, an award-winning chef and graduate of the Culinary Arts Program at Johnson County Community College, used to be known as Diane Dougherty before she divorced her husband and sold her catering company, Feasts of Fancy, to Andy and Kathleen Jacot in 2001. Taking back her maiden name, Mora returned to college to earn a degree in business management and, later, a masters degree in liberal studies with an emphasis on social justice and philosophy. She began a new business, creating custom-designed cakes, in 2003.
Mora will also be appearing (with designer cookies and cupcakes) this Friday, February 5, at Birdie's in the Crossroads for that night's First Friday festivities.
