I have been holding on to this little secret for several weeks and it has just about burned a hole in me!! Several weeks ago I received an e-mail from Jackie at Jackie at Cake Central. They wanted me to submit a cake for publication in Cake Central magazine. I answered her back so fast I think the e-mail caught on fire!!
The theme I was asked to submit for was "Minimally Decorated with a Splash of Red". Now, that's a hard theme for any decorator that wants to showcase their skills to the rest of the decorating community. But I vowed that I would do my best to keep the design simple.
I was really happy with the way this design turned out. I have read Cake Wrecks too many times and seen too many balloon cakes that turned out looking like something... less sophisticated.
I actually made 2 cakes to submit, and Cake Central put both in the magazine. I was worried that they wouldn't one cake or the other, so I submitted a second cake.
I only had a couple of weeks from initial request to submission to get these cakes ready. I wished I had more time to work on them.
How many of you receive Cake Central? I wished it was still a real live printed magazine, but I'm still glad to be published in a leading industry magazine.
Special Thanks go out to Mike Houston of Houston Studios for taking such great photos to submit to the magazine.
Y'all have a great week!
