Cake vs. Cake

I've gotten a lot of requests lately for really fantastic cakes _ wedding cakes and groom's cakes and it got me thinking about old movies, but one in particular. Kramer vs. Kramer, where a husband and wife face off in court as opposing sides on the same case. It made me think about competition because in weddings where I've done both, the groom's cake has been more intricate than the wedding cake. To me it takes away from the wedding cake being a centerpiece. What do you think? Should the wedding cake take the spotlight, or should it share prominence with the groom's cake?

i'm ready for my close-up!

today has been very exciting!  i was interviewed for the show get married with colin cowie for their upcoming season. we talked about all things cake including trends in wedding cakes, incorporting personal touches to your cake/decor, staying on budget, and lots of other things you'll have to watch the show to find out about. of course i spent lots of time making sure that i looked fabulous... thank god for mac makeup and spanx! hopefully all of the effort was worth it and the camera only added 10lbs instead of 20. oh well, you know what they say " never trust a skinny cook (or baker)"!

i'll keep you posted about when the show will air. i'm crazy excited about my television debut and all the opportunities to follow.

so much pressure!

thus begins my foray into the world of blogging. i'm sure i'll eventually find something profound to say, but in the meantime... hooray cake! so my loosely formulated plan is to talk to all of the cake groupies out there every now and then, and to  share my thoughts and  experiences creating cakes.
