Pleats & Brooches Cake!
Here is another of the cakes I did in September! I was excited to work on this one, I had designed a cake with diagonal pleats some time ago and never had the opportunity to make it. So, I was thrilled when my bride told me this was what she wanted! I used a scribing […]
Ruffled Petal Cake!
I made this cake a few weeks ago, for a wedding at the gorgeous Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT. When I was discussing the design with the couple, they were in love with a cake by Cinderellas Cakes… check out the fun, “shabby chic” styled bridal shower she created the cake for: here. My […]
Cake in Transit!
I am finally winding down from the busiest wedding season I’ve experienced yet! I am behind sharing my cakes with you all… And I really wanted to get some photos posted today, but even without cakes to work on, there don’t seem to be enough hours in a day! I WILL get some photos up […]

After I posted pictures of the Cinderella Sweet 16 Cake I made back in March I was contacted many times about the instructions. And, I promised a tutorial would be forth coming… Well, in the spring I was contacted by Sharon […]
Craftsy Photography Classes!
A photo can make or break the presentation of a product. As cake decorators… as artists, it is incredibly important for us to have great photos of our cakes. But, it’s highly unlikely to have access for a photographer to stop by and take photos for each creation. If it’s a wedding cake, you can […]
Combed Buttercream Cake
I delivered this sweet and simple wedding cake over the weekend… Simple combed Swiss Meringue Buttercream accented with fresh flowers! I always get nervous when delivering “naked” cakes, because I won’t know what the finished cake is going to look like until I’m at the venue… The florist did the flower arranging for me and […]
How I learned to decorate cakes…
Recently, I received an email from someone asking how I learned to decorate cakes (specifically asking if I learned everything from Craftsy) and if I had any advice. My response turned fairly epic, because I wanted to be thorough… so I decided there might be other readers looking for advice! So below is my response! […]
Lace Applique Cake
Today, I have another cake from my photo shoot with Allure Bridals, to share! For this “story” I was sent a photo of a pretty lace covered green bridesmaid dress. I’ve been wanting to make a lace embellished cake for a while now, so I knew lace that would be the focus of my design! […]
So, this past weekend’s cake was a simple buttercream cake: It was pretty basic, with SMBC finish and swirls. Fresh flowers, provided by the florist as embellishment… My clients tend to come to me when they want fondant work. I somewhat specialize in fondant design with clean, elegant lines (or, so I like to think, […]
Purple Anemone & Scalloped Lattice Cake!
Last week, I had the honor of participating in something so exciting and fun! I was invited by a friend, Meena of 5th Avenue Weddings & Events to participate in a photo shoot she was doing for Allure Bridals! …..What?! Yes, that’s right…. I was asked to provide cakes, to be photographed and used in […]
