About the Design
I love that it combines both of my favorite styles of cake, painted and naked. I love all things floral and modern bohemian, and that it includes some of my favorite colors. Painting on soft buttercream vs fondant can be a bit of a challenge! I have to keep the icing cold in order to not damage the surface while painting. I used completely natural colors all made from edible vegetable coloring and mixed that in with real vanilla buttercream on a naked cake to create a pallet that was both colorful but earthy and muted.
About the Artist
Everything I make is made from scratch and I spend a lot of time on the baking process to create the most flavorful pastries with realistic, non-artificial ingredients. I love the quality and texture that using real butter, unbleached and organic ingredients add to my pastries without making them exactly “healthy” or fat free. I keep my design and decorating process minimal so they are classic and elegant for any event or party theme. I believe food brings people together and in my biased opinion, should be the life of the party. You can’t go wrong having a food-focused reception; it keeps everyone entertained and sets the mood.
Words of Wisdom
I believe food brings people together and in my biased opinion, should be the life of the party. You can’t go wrong having a food-focused reception, it keeps everyone entertained and sets the mood. If family or friends are eager to contribute to the food or offer to bake your cake next to nothing, kindly ask them to, rather donate money to your food cost fund so you don’t take that stress and risk on someone you love and so they don’t miss a moment. I totally understand couples who are budgeting, but it’s worth it to support a local businesses who will take care of one of the most important parts of your reception, professionally.
