Hi Internet. Yikes - has it been this long since I last blogged. For shame. Especially since I have SOOO much to blog about. I guess that is what happens when its the middle of wedding season while planning you own wedding (that's right - I'm finally tying the knot - woohoo). But that's not today's topic.
Today we are all about cake. Actually, I'm all about cake all the time. A while back I shot a buttercream dream made by my talented friend Gabrielle of Cake Coquette. The inspiration was plucked directly out of Marie Antionette's lavish style. All the details are piped in buttercream -amazing! Gabby was lucky I was able to control my urge to take a huge bite out of the cake while I was shooting. It smelled divine.
And in case you are wondering (because I was) this is what Gabby had to say about cake goodness:
My favorite cake is dark chocolate cake paired with either raspberry or mocha depending on my mood. My favorite part about working with cakes is the knowledge that I work with sugar for a living and it's just cake! Yes, people pay a lot of money for cakes, and I put my love and sweat and tears into them, but in the end its just sugar and you can't take it too seriously. I'm such a perfectionist that I sometimes don't know where and when to stop decorating. That is when I tell myself that no one else is scrutinizing buttercream like I am!
Hopefully you will see more pics soon in a magazine near you, but in the meantime here is a sneak peak.
The topper was transported all the way from the patisserie, La Duree, in Paris.
