Here are a few of my favorites projects through the years. Scroll to the bottom for the full gallery without descriptions. 


Minnie Mouse Cake

Minnie is constructed 100% out of cake! Depending on the design, sculpted cakes can often include non edible structural elements like wooden dowels, foam, or other times rice crispies are used for aspects of a design that can't be made using cake. Minnie is 100% cake and and frosting, with a thin layer of fondant.

This cake was made for Murielle, and the talent seamtresses in the costume shop of Purchase College. Murielle taught me a few things about sewing. This cake is a black cake or christmas cake, depending on where you are from. Murielle, is Haitian and she and some of her family call this cake, Voodoo cake.


Joe is 6. 


Joe is actually closer to his teenage years now. Back in his youth this party featured a magic act at a little neighborhood park in Park Slope, Brooklyn and beautiful weather. All the kids at the party ran over to the picnic tables where the cake was when the Magic show ended. I've never see kids stampede for cake before-- it was pretty exciting to see people so excited about cake. 


Symphony Celebration

This cake was a sweet symphony of chocolate for Dr. Heinrich Medicus, an accomplished scientist and generous philanthropist. Dr. Medicus enjoyed sweets so this cake's inspiration was a chocolate shop. Each layer was packed with truffles and chocolate curls, and the middle tier was a chocolate stout cake, with Bailey's buttercream, and chocolate chip cookie dough truffles throughout the center. Party guests followed me into the kitchen to get extra slices of chocolate.
