"Our Wedding" Spring 2010 Issue

Between the craziness of all the holiday madness, I wanted to stop and share my photo from the latest issue of Sacramento Magazine's "Our Wedding." I created a 3-tier whimsical cake that was featured in their "Fabulous Finds" section of the magazine. Check it out on page 20!

Saving Lives, one cake at a time.

I just had a rare, yet "heart- warming" cake experience!
Sutter Memorial Hospital had contacted me to create a cake to celebrate the lives of some of their patients. Instead of a "normal" sheet cake, I created an inspirational and whimsical cake for those surviving with the aide of a Ventricular Assist Device. At the request of the hospital, I topped the cake with an edible replica of a heart + VAD. This was my first attempt at making an anatomical heart, and it was pretty clear that I have not studied anatomy since high school...In the end, I was very pleased with the design! Take a look!

South Lake Tahoe Wedding + more

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to deliver a beautiful wedding cake up to South Lake Tahoe. The venue was gorgeous, and I wish I had snapped a few pics of the decor.

The bride had given me the artistic license to design the cake. Sugar red tulips were her only request. I have to say, I was very pleased with my gumpaste Parrot Tulips. I hope the pics give them justice! Because of the dark red color, the petals were originally "chalky" and "ashy" looking once they dried. After the petal and luster dust was applied, I briefly swirled them over some steam from the stove to brighten up the color. It worked! I wish I had made more flowers....
