Exquisitely Beautiful

My newest customer requested an “exquisitely beautiful” cake for her mother’s 83rd birthday. I couldn’t help but oblige her! This is a 6-inch lemon cake with raspberry buttercream under the quilted fondant. The top is adorned with a gumpaste peony, rose, daisies and some butterflies. She’s also getting a dozen cupcakes that match the cake’s design. I hope both Margaret and her mother approve!

Jane Eyre Photo Shoot

The wonderful and talented wedding photographer Melissa Oholendt graciously invited me to be part of a concept wedding shoot. The idea was to create a wedding that would feel like a tip of the hat to English writer Charlotte Bronte’s character Jayne Eyre. This elegant, simplistic cake is covered with a smooth layer of fondant and bunches of sugared raspberries. I wish I could take credit for the adorable teacup cake topper, but alas, it was Melissa’s inspired idea. Stay tuned for some remarkable images, and please consider Melissa for any photography needs.
