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!
