I create cakes from photos, dress details, vellum designs, games, shoes, toys, and the list goes on. Usually I look for images or objects that are project specific: I have a client already or an event or show coming up and I have a theme to incorporate. Every once in a while my eye is caught randomly and I find myself thinking…”well, that could be a pretty cake”. It happened in church a few weeks ago. I sat behind a woman with a pretty stitched pattern on her blouse. I didn’t need the design so I just laughed at myself and told myself to pay attention to the sermon instead of thinking of cake designs.
Then, just last week a client asked me to create a cake for her mother’s 70th birthday and her only directions were to make it lovely and elegant, she knew she wouldn’t be disappointed(how lovely is that to hear?) and whatever I wanted to do would be perfect.
Well, I used my inspired design from church and I think it is perfect.
I am pleased and excited to finally announce the birth of my new venture. It might more accurately, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, be described as a blooming. My Jessica’s Cakes site is down and my Sweet Bloom’s site is under its final stages of construction. Under the new Sweet Bloom’s name, I will be creating gumpaste flowers, cake toppers, and other fondant and/or gumpaste details for cakes. I will not, however be making any cakes to hold these details. Along with the production of sweet details I will be teaching around town. Classes will be posted with links included for those who are interested in attending or finding out more. Come back soon and see the new site.
