Two More of Some of My Favorite Cake Creations

Marc Jacobs Purse and Shoe

Cartier Watch Groom's Cake

Was scrolling down my blog and found these two cakes I created. It was the Cartier Cake that was noticed by one of the producers at TLC, which prompted her to call me to audition for TLC's Ultimate Cake Off. Didn't get on that season, but then, Al Roker Productions called, and we were selected to film a special with Sylvia Weinstock on WE TV. An experience I will never forget!

The Marc Jacobs bag and shoe was for Yvonne, who celebrated her birthday at Seasons on Long Island. Looked pretty nice in their winter room with a fireplace as a backdrop.

Ok...enough reminiscing....on to new cake creations and to building out our new shoppe in Port Washington, New York! Yesssss people....we finally got our verbal approval for permits and are now lining up our contractors!

Christening Cake and a MacKenzie-Child's Inspired Birthday Cake

What a sensational 2011 season we've had so far! Going through my blog I thought I'd just recap a couple of cake creations that were created for our amazing clients! There are so many more to view in older posts.

Not only did Sweet Alchemy by Amelia have the opportunity to create....but we were on two podcasts...The Andrew Zarian Show - Guys From Queens, where I muppetized out of cake, Andrew for his birthday and where Sofia baked some delish cupcakes.

To make the season even "sweeter" Sweet Alchemy was in a one hour television special "ICED WITH SYLVIA WEINSTOCK", which aired on May 29, 2011, on WE TV. During this special with the Empress of Cakes Sylvia Weinstock, Sofia and I competed for a coveted three day mentorship which we won! During the mentorship, we were asked to create and execute a wedding cake in just under 2 days, in a medium (buttercream) neither Sofia nor I were expert in...but learned very quickly!) for a bride whose reception was at Cipriani Wall Street! The antics and the drama were to die for! We're just hoping it reruns on "WE".

Who knew...that five years ago....after visiting my son Terry in London....and taking cake design classes at Squires International School of Cake Decorating, that I would be bitten by that "sweet bug" and leave teaching and social work to become a cake entrepreneur!

And so...on to new and exciting days in creating for happy events.
