Feature in American Cake Decorating Magazine

Thank you to American Cake Decorating Magazine for featuring me in their “In My Kitchen” section of their July/August issue.

Here is the link to the American Cake Decorating Magazine website where you can purchase your copy of this months issue. It has great tips on cake decorating and is loaded with information about what is going on in the industry.

In this issue I am honored to share a tutorial with other cake friends on how to paint a flower design on a cake. It is something that I hope everyone tries. It is a lot of fun once you get the hang of it and can be a quick and elegant way to dress up a fondant covered cake. Nothing is better than a blank canvas, and it is even sweeter when it is made out of cake!

Below is my youtube video of the whole process:



Spotlight in Cake Master’s Magazine

What an AMAZING feeling to see your own art in a magazine! I want to thank Cake Masters Magazine for the wonderful Cake Spotlight spread in this years April Issue of their magazine. My Pied Piper Cake won Best of Divisions at the Austin Capital Confectioners “That Takes the Cake” show. There is a spread right after mine showing a few of the incredible cakes that were in the show. This years theme, “Once Upon a Cake” was perfect for my Cakelustrations! I had a great deal of fun creating my own version of the Pied Piper.
