Over the weekend, I created this little swirly design over the weekend… it’s decorated in vanilla fondant and accented with piped royal icing dots.

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!
Jen & John, you’re welcome in Austin anytime you like! All the best, and John, get well soon!
Good morning! I realized last night that, in the midst of all the craziness, I neglected to share the post that Jen of Cake Wrecks did on Wicked Cakes. It was a fantastic post, and I’m so grateful to all the Cake Wreck readers who posted such nice comments about my cakes!
Hey everyone! Just a heads-up that John has been released from the hospital and is in great spirits. Jen & John have rescheduled their Austin stop, and they’ll be joining us at BookPeople this Saturday at 2pm. Check out the Evite for details!
See you there!
Just wanted to give a quick welcome to all of you visiting the site from the Cake Wrecks family… glad you stopped by! I’ve included some additional pics below of the Wreckplica intended for today’s event to hopefully provide some cheer as we all hope for the best for John & Jen.

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!
Just a reminder that the lovely Jen and John of the famed and fabulously funny (yep, I just said that…) blog Cake Wrecks will be here in Austin on Sunday! The event is at 3pm at BookPeople and will include book signings, cupcake “Wreckplica” contests, and lots of yummy cake.

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!
