Holy cow! One of my cakes (the Geisha cake) has been published in the 3rd installment of Cake Central Magazine!!! *falls over from shock
If you are in the cake industry and if you have EVER seen an episode of Food Network Challenge, you know who Kerry Vincent is! The judge you love to hate may be harsh but she is extremely talented and is held in very high regard by cake decorators. She is also the creator of the supremely popular show and website www.oklahomasugarartist.com, the largest sugar artist show in the united states. She has also contributed to cakecentral.com where cake decorators from all over the world show their stuff, enter competitions and get advice from other decorators through forums. It’s an EXTREMELY helpful, inspiring and informative source for decorators and just lovers of cake.
Jackie Shaffer (creator of Cakecentral.com) recently launched Cake Central Magazine. Only on their 3rd installment, it’s already reached supreme popularity. This magazine features the best of the best when it comes to every type of cake, in full color, glossy pages. When the first issue launched, they put out a request on Cake Central to decorators for submissions of cake. It is a HUGE honor to be chosen and they never tell you if you made the cut, you just find out when you get the issue.
Well I didn’t make the cut the first two issues and my third issue was late in coming to our new address due to address changes and such. I finally got it today and just flipped through and caught a glimpse of a familiar cake. I paused in disbelief for a moment, thought “no way” and then flipped to back to see if my name was listed under Oregon contributors…IT WAS!!!
*commence freaking out
They chose my Geisha cake to be featured under the section “Party Cakes. You won’t believe it’s cake!”
Thank you Cake Central Magazine for publishing my photo. I hope this isn’t a one time thing! I feel so completely honored and blown away.
