Cute...just in time.

This is my new stamp for my cake boxes.
I got it just in time...to stop making cakes. Yes, that's right. I am going to be taking a long awaited break starting at the first of the year. I have 3, count them, 3 cakes left to fill. I plan on taking off for a year or two, at least until Holden can cooperate while I am in the kitchen. I will let everyone know when I am back in the swing of things (some wish sooner than later :) ) Until then, enjoy the last 3 posts of the year and I will see you some time in the future. :)



  1. Hey, sorry to hear you are taking a break, but totaly understand you are a mommy first. I always look to your work for ideas and am going to miss that. I wish you all the best. I do have a question for you, if you would like to share a tip, HOw do you thin your icing for filling in drawings, corn syrup or milk / water. Also, for this wedding cake, did you free hand it or use a stencil? It is perfect, great work.

  2. Sweetalainas, I use piping gel to thin icing for piping detail (like the black on the wedding cake) but will use extra milk to make a batch thinner. As for the wedding cake, I used a scroll press/stencil for the base of the design and then added to it. It wasn't perfect, but at least it let me be consistant.

  3. I will miss your posts you are truly an inspiration to me and I hope I get as good as you when working with buttercream. Happy Holidays to you and your family and a prosperous new year.
