Cake Design Inspiration : Seahorse Sweets

Photo by Seahorse Sweets

This weeks cake design inspiration comes from Seahorse Sweets .When I saw this cake I fell in love with it. Anyone who knows me can say that I love Cookie Monster, and always have, even as a child.

The cookies that Cookie Monster is piled on look so real. They look like they are fresh out of the oven with that fresh baked smell. In my opinion, Cookie Monster couldn't look any better while holding his giant cookie. The cookie smash cake is also a cute and unique touch.

Seahorse Sweets is based in Nova Scotia, Canada. They have tons on unique and amazing cakes on their Facebook page so go check them out.

Feature Fridays: Moving To Seattle



This month of April will be a hectic, but fun one for me. Anxiety is creeping in and my organizing nature is being thrown off due to having to rearrange a quite a few things in my schedule. I have never used an eraser in my planner I will soon be in the process of moving to Seattle due to the Air Force. The move is coming faster than I expected with the movers coming next Tuesday. Ahhh!!!! There aren't enough hours in the day for me to prepare. LaPaul (my husband) and I will be leaving Florida mid April to not only go to Seattle, but to visit Los Angeles for a few weeks on a work related trip.



With the upcoming move I will still be posting on this blog, which I love, but I may only be posting two to three times a week until I get settled again. I am trying to schedule as many blog posts as I can ahead of time so they will already be planned ahead.



I have been in North Carolina for half of the week visiting family on a last minute vacation before the big move. I have finally got to have real sweet tea again without having to make it myself. While I have come to love the part of Florida that we are currently stationed in I am looking forward to moving due to a few sweet factors. I have heard that the foodie culture is Seattle is huge (a big plus for me) as well as the amount of good and quality bakeries, cake shops, and pie shops. I plan to do a series on these things when I get acquainted with the area.



I hope that everyone has a great weekend. What are your plans?

My cake design inspiration this week comes from Margaret Braun. Margaret has a style like no other cake artist of today.The first time that I saw one of her cakes I was awed with how the design was both elegant and clean. She pushes the boundaries of cake decorating in design and patterns. Her cakes are ornate and very detailed, like the cake pictured above.



Margaret has appeared on several cake decorating shows and even has a cake decorating book named Cake Walk, which is a best seller. Her work has been featured in many magazines, such as Bride's and Food and Wine.



For more information on Margaret Braun and her cakes visit her website.
