Fast forward a few months and I meet with a bride that wants that exact cake, only in her colors. Good thing I had taken a picture, I guess!
There's nothing technically difficult about this cake, but it did turn out very elegantly. A couple of years ago I was taking a class with Mike McCarey and we were asking him about all the crazy cakes he did and how we wished we could get out clientele to not only ask for such crazy cakes, but to be willing to pay for them as well. He thought for a few minutes and replied "Don't get me wrong, I do some crazy cakes, but swiss dots are my bread and butter. Swiss dots are what pay the bills."
I think it's a good point - I would love to feature outrageous cakes here every week, but I just don't get those kinds of orders, or have that level of clientele (just yet). But a cake doesn't have to be completely unique or super difficult to be beautiful!
Have a great weekend!!
