she takes the cake

"Take the Cake" Wedding Cake
"Take the Cake?" Would you love to have a slice of this sophisticated cake? Not only was it artfully created, but incredibly delicious. I had the pleasure of tasting a sliver, one slice of carrot cake and the other was my favorite classic white wedding cake.
Although my sketch looks a bit washed out, it was not, blame it on the lighting. The tables were skirted with a gorgeous cypress green crinkle and really added an elegant touch. This baker really takes the cake for baking not only an incredible creation but a tasty one at that. Rumor has it that this baker (Mary) takes the cake all the time!

Finally, a beautiful wedding cake that actually tastes good! This is my true test when it comes to wedding cake...it's so important to taste good, don't you think?

Love the sketch!

One question, how will all these glorious works of art be displayed? Has the bride specified? I shared your weekend with Sean, and he LOVED the idea of someone sketching a wedding - "so meaningful and elegant" - his exact words!

Char,
I have a minimum of six, but I always aim to do more and always succeed in doing more and my client loving them all. It is a real adrenaline rush. I fret over nothing and just "do it."
Try it at one of your girl's parties...The other kids will love it as well as the parents.

Let us eat cake, shall we? I was at a wedding a few years ago-and the cake was DELICIOUS! I have never tasted anyting like it. And it was beautiful. They have come a long way- since the day of just white cake and sugary roses.....
