I felt so honored that my friend, Denise, would trust me to make her wedding cake. It was her famous flourless chocolate cake recipe and the design required a freehand embossing technique. I also remember offereing to give her the cake as her wedding gift. She thought it was too generous so she had to give me something for the down payment. She ended up giving me her triathlon wetsuit as I doing a lot of races that year.
Here are some photos of me setting up that wedding cake 5 years ago. I was so nervous throughout the process but excited. I dreamed that it would one day be my career, not just a hobby.
Fast forward 5 years.... hundreds of cakes later... Thank you so much for stopping by, reading my blog, leaving comments along the way and your continued business.
