And technically it wasn't today, it was last weekend....but the excitement carries!
I officially had my first client/customer/person-who-I-didn't-just-give-cake-to.
I don't think I can explain the feeling of PROFESSIONALLY baking someone a cake for the first time...ever. I think its right up there with having your first kid and getting married....okay maybe not THAT far up...
I think I need a tissue.
I was talking to my friend yesterday about being a cake 'artist'. I didn't consider myself to be creative or an artist because I can't draw to save my life. Then she mentioned that baking is my 'medium' just like photography is hers.
Inspiration for this cake (and by inspiration I mean totally plagiarized) came from I am Bakers beautiful Rose Cake. I dressed it up pink and added a few nonpareils. Inside is a lemon cake and its covered in vanilla buttercream.
Credits to my super photographer Emily.
And get this guys....I EVEN SENT THE CAKE OFF IN A PROPER WHITE BOX.
