Wedding Cake Wednesday: Chocolate Drip Cake

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I delivered two very different Wedding Cakes on Saturday.

I’ve Been Doing This for Ten Years Now

In a little departure from Fashion on Friday, I thought I should share this with you. Chris reminded me this morning that it has been ten years since I made my first Wedding Cake.

2016 Review: Part 2

It’s been a big year. Lately, in discussions with friends, I’ve found myself saying “terrible globally, great professionally.” I’ve almost felt guilty for admitting to myself that it’s been a pretty good year – in spite of tears shed in front of the news channels on more than one occasion.
