Cake Decorating

One of the things that I find most inspiring about cake decorators is their commitment to lifelong learning.  From my narrow perspective, this cohort of makers is forever on the hunt to acquire  new skills,  new tools, and learn the latest process.  This constant striving really speaks to the passion people feel for cake decorating.   

I decorated a lot of cakes before I really got my passion ignited. Seeing April Reed's cakes in the early 2000's knocked my socks off. I'm not the only one who was blown away by her paradigm busting designs. Erica O'Brien's blog post from 2010 echos my sentiments exactly when comes to her inspiring work. 

Who inspires you? What made you get into cake decorating? 

 

This could be one of the most copied cakes known to humankind and with good reason.  It is fantastic in every way. One of my favorite things about it is that it looks delicious.
