I know I promised that I wouldn’t let the Sweet Element blog slide for long periods, but somehow, even without a corporate gig anymore – life is still hectic! In between dealing with all the people necessary to get my cake studio completed (which seriously is a job all unto itself), I’ve been keeping my creativity flowing by making portfolio cakes, which is always gratifying as it allows me to experiment with different techniques and continue to push the envelope artistically.
Yesterday, I was lucky enough to be able to work with Mike from Arclight Images & got some great new shots of some of my latest portfolio pieces. It was such a pleasure working with a guy with such a great eye & very creative mind. After a number of shoots with magazines & their very simple backdrops for cakes, it was really fun to think of different settings for pieces – both in & outdoors!
Without further adieu, here are the photos!

Here’s the latest SweetElement creation … a fall wedding cake made as a wedding gift for a friend. Her request … a simple, elegant, fall-themed (with leaves) cake with her Charlie Brown topper incorporated. I think the end result turned out quite nice. All tiers were comprised of vanilla cake filled with strawberry preserves and frosted in buttercream and fondant. All the leaves were made out of gumpaste, and the tiers were adorned with ribbon on the bases. The biggest compliment (aside from a gushing appreciate bride), was seeing one of the slender female guests at our table eat two pieces of cake … AND yell at the servers who were trying to clear her cake plate when she still had a bite left. Now that’s a true compliment!
