Cupcakes for tomorrow’s birthday celebration at school (she insisted on sprinkles 🙄)! I got some food grade #jeweldust while I was at #thattakesthecake a couple weekends ago. The sparkle in this stuff is A-MAZ-ING! My granite countertops are extra glittery now. ✨
Me with the King 👑 @mikemccarey and the Queen 👑 @avaloncakes.
I love my job, cause brings me around the world. But above all, I am feeling so lucky to have the opportunity to know in person amazing artists and truly lovely persons like them.
Thank you all, thank you @capitalconfectioners for invite me. Cannot wait next year. #lucky#texas#ilovemyjob#travel#cake#sugar#sugarart#artists#usa#thattakesthecake
So at the #thattakesthecake show over the weekend, I made some friends over at @sprinklepop.shop I couldn't wait to use thier sprinkles and luckily I had a tasting this morning. 😋 I am just in love with these sprinkle selections. 💗💕💗 Happy Hump day! #unicorn#sprinkles on strawberry shortcake #cake pop. #atx#austin#love#sweet#512

👩🏼🍳 dough rolling deep as ever at #thattakesthecake ! i was overwhelmed by the support received -- from those who trekked all the way up to the show, to the stranger on nextdoor who let me borrow his dehumidifier to combat the worst ever baking weather, to the friends who no longer even bat an eye when i skip out on social events to mess with cookies, to my mother who flew her ass down to texas to be my maid slash errand runner because obviously i’m out of white @americolor and oops yellow too can you go back? ya’ll kick ass.
These were my entries into the small bites category of the #thattakesthecake cake competition. They won first place in my division and I am quite proud considering this was my first entry into a cake competition. 💞👍👊 #EllysSweetShop
💋KISSES to @capitalconfectioners for an amazing show, the judges for their expertise, the vendors for their insight and my fellow competitors for their inspiring work! Ralph and I were honored to spend the weekend getting to know some of you — as a self-conscious hobbyist winging basically everything, the only thing i’m confident about is loving to try — so your encouragement was truly my most prized win of the weekend. Thank you!
Competed in my first cake competition this past weekend and I took home a first place for my macarons and first place for our team entry. It was a wild ride lol! The event center was soooo humid that the 3D edible lace on my macarons softened within an hour and I had to do some quick surgery on them. My green fondant bridge connecting the tiers on our cake fell too. Just remember that behind every beautiful sugar piece you see, there is usually a panicky, frazzled girl with 3 hours of sleep usually screaming about the humidity in the room 😂😂😂 #thattakesthecake#cakecompetition
Have you ever put something in your mouth and even though you expected it to be really *really* good, your eyes almost pop out of your head and even though your mouth is full, your jaw drops at the sheer magnificence of the tastes and textures of perfection that has found its way to your tastebuds? This happened to me today! The hair on my head literally stood up this was so good! Honestly I’m having trouble coming up with adjectives that would appropriately describe the perfection that was this cupcake that I tasted today! Yes… it was a cupcake. This cupcake is what you wanted every other cupcake that you’ve ever tried, to taste like. It was moist beyond description and the flavors were completely off the charts. Swipe left to see “the cupcake”. And click link in bio to meet the creator and bad ass Baker!
All I Want For Christmas is Cake. This cake has snow flake cut outs with hand piping, gum paste white holly and poinsettias. It won second place at #thattakesthecake in the Single Tier Advanced Novelty category
Went to the @capitalconfectioners #thattakesthecake show today. This (part of) one was one of my favorites but there were so many amazing works of art from all ages and all levels. Looking forward to next year and who knows maybe I’ll enter it next year? Might be fun! #austincakeshow - And just found out it was by @kosmiccustomcakes! 💙
