I think I’m going through another design style transition. While I still can’t seem to do a white-on-white cake, I now find myself more attracted to muted color palettes than the bold and bright colors I used to be inspired by.
While these two cakes couldn’t be any more different from each other, they’re both definitely very different from my earlier work. The first is sleek and blingy with different shades of gold and a brooch hand-crafted by my wonderful intern-turned-assistant Callan. (Check back in a week or so for a post all about her.) The second is soft and vintage with an antiqued sugar dahlia. Although I don’t necessarily feel either one represents me as an artist, I definitely like–but not necessarily love–them both.
Brooke Allison took all the photographs. You know those skinny mirrors that make you look thinner than you do in real life? That’s Brooke. Her photographs make my cakes look better than they do in real life, and I love her work.
