About the Design
The featured cake is a quadruple stacked 8 inch with double six inch tier. It’s covered with lightly marbled fondant and finished with gold leaf and a crown of fresh flowers. With cakes as with many things, less is more. Each element is distinct but not disjointed. Harmony was and always is the goal.
About the Artist
I discovered my passion for baking and decorating at a young age. Over the years, I have been very fortunate to have worked with some amazing bakers and decorators. I enjoy teaching and sharing my love for creating cakes. In 2005, I started Amy Cakes with the encouragement of a friend and neighbor. I often pinch myself, thinking “I am living my dream career!” – 26 years and it is still my love. To me and my team, it’s not “just cake” – it’s memories, milestones and edible art.
Words of Wisdom
Meet with as many bakers as you can. The most important thing is that your baker not only understands but really sees the vision you have for your wedding no matter how grand or humble it might be. Also consider taste. Remember, you’ll be sharing this with those you love and care for the most. As long as you plan with celebration in mind, you cannot go wrong!
