Cake Styling

A year ago I blogged about styling a cake for Joy the Baker. It was a blast to work with Joy, totally fun, and we had some good laughs over how very unglamorous these photos shoots are behind the scenes. If only people knew... I'm not going to lie, I was a little devastated when the cake I styled failed to pass muster with Joy's editors. You see, it was supposed to be for the cover of her new cookbook. I was sooooo excited about that. I've had my designs on the cover of a magazine... not once, but twice. That's a pretty big deal. But the cover of a Joy the Baker Cookbook? That made my little heart go pitter patter pumpernickel.

Alas and alack, it wasn't to be. The cookbook editors went a different direction. Ah, well, I suppose the cake I styled can live on in infamy on this, my little bloggity-blog. At least I can look at it, and that makes me happy.
