I couldn’t think of a better gift than arriving home last night & finding a copy of the latest Sweet Element press waiting for me in the mailbox. I had a feeling this 2nd press piece would be a little bigger than the previous & was psyched to see a FULL page! Thanks (201) Bride for such a great spread!
I would be remiss not to mention our first print press piece, which I am still amazed actually happened. Sometimes the universe works in funny ways I tell you. It was actually this first press piece that reignited the simmering desire to a full fire & got me to really jump into cake full time. I’ll never forget that morning at work talking to a friend who mentioned that she was telling one of her friends about me & Sweet Element over the weekend. The big catch – her friend worked at NY Magazine! She told me that NY Magazine Weddings was still looking for a few more simple wedding cakes for an upcoming issue, but the turnaround time was tight. It was Monday when I reached out to NY Magazine, and the photo shoot was Thursday morning. Normally that wouldn’t be such a huge ordeal, but mind you, I was still working my day job in the agency at that point. Somehow, miraculously, I got two simple cake designs churned out & one made the cut!
