I Scream, You Scream

We all Scream for Ice-Cream!!!

I’m so excited to share this ice-cream reveal from NadaMoo ice-cream company. I was asked to make a realistic pint of ice-cream out of cake for their new birthday cake cookie dough and sprinkles dairy free ice-cream.

Introducing the first of our two brand new flavors, Birthday Cake Cookie Dough! Sprinkles, cookie dough, frosted yellow cake and pure joy all packed into a pint! ??? – – – – – – – – – Tune in tonight for our second new flavor! ?? – – – – – – – – – We also want to give HUGE thanks to @AkikoWhite for making the incredible/delicious Birthday Cake Cookie Dough cake we used in this video! She did an amazing job!

Here is a process shot of the cake I made. They paper is printed with edible ink on wafer paper. I iced the cake just to the exact size so when they cut the cake they could morph their original pint into the shoot at the end.


I actually made two so they had an extra incase they messed up the first shoot.


My Food Network Experience

In 2016 I had the opportunity to be on Food Network’s Cake Wars. It was quite an experience.

To begin with, you have to submit an audition reel. I can’t help but laugh, If you tell them your “Insane” and have a couple farm animals in your reel, you can be on TV. At least that’s how I got on! I do have a few nice cake though and I think my outgoing unpredictable personality was just what they were looking for!

Sweet Fairy Tales

This is the watercolor cover that I created for the Sweet Fairy Tales Book. I took something from everyone’s cake and added it into the illustration. I was going for a vintage feel and I think I achieved it.

I created this pen and ink illustration and 45 watercolor illustration portraits for a project where 45 international cake artist came together to make awareness for literature and homeless children. Each artist took a lullaby and created a sugar piece to go with it. All proceeds for this book will go to a organization called Project Night Night.

Here is the one of my cakelustrations that I did for the rhyme “Come Out and Play”

Girls and boys, come out to play,

The moon doth shine as bright as day;

Leave your supper, and leave your sleep,
And come with your playfellows into the street.
Come with a whoop, come with a call,
Come with a good will or not at all.
Up the ladder and down the wall,
A half-penny roll will serve us all.
You find milk, and I’ll find flour,
And we’ll have a pudding in half an hour.

This is the caklustration for  “What are Little Boys Made Of?”

What are little boys made of, made of?

What are little boys made of?

“Snaps and snails, and puppy-dogs’ tails;
And that’s what little boys are made of.”

What are little girls made of, made of?
What are little girls made of?
“Sugar and spice, and all that’s nice;
And that’s what little girls are made of.”
