Cake Wrecks Book Signing - Austin

What a fabulous event on Saturday! Thanks to John’s ongoing recovery (yay!), Jen & John were able to reschedule the Cake Wrecks book book signing event for Austin, and we had the opportunity to hang with them on Saturday. I have to say that Jen & John are just as lovely as you’d imagine - super-friendly and a joy to listen to. Nicole had a blast meeting fellow Cake Wrecks fans and enjoying delicious cake!

Sunday, October 4th, 2009

All - Just a heads up that Jen & John of cakes wrecks are both pretty ill (you can follow the updates on their Twitter feed from www.cakewrecks.com), and they’ve had to cancel the Austin event, much to their heartbreak.  Send them some happy vibes!  :)

I’ve included below a quick snapshot (more photos to come later) of the dummy “Wreckplica” cake that I made for the event tomorrow)… hopefully it will bring some smiles!

I met Elisa Strauss of NYC’s Confetti Cakes!

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

As part of the “That Takes the Cake 2009″ competition/show, I had the opportunity to attend a short course taught by Elisa Strauss, owner of Confetti Cakes in NYC (bakery to the stars).  Elisa walked through some very helpful tips/tricks in developing a “present cake”…  her instruction was hugely helpful and I can’t wait to incorporate them into my work.  Thanks, Elisa!
