A couple weeks back, The Cleveland Museum of Art celebrated its 100th milestone birthday with a huge event! Over 5000 people attended the celebration of the Art Museum’s 100 years in Cleveland, and were served cake and ice cream! We were asked to create a cake that represented Salvador Dali’s Painting of “The Dream”. Lauren did an amazing job on the details of this cake, everything being hand piped, hand painted and sculpted to mimic the feel of the painting. Here are a few detail shots of the cake as well as the finished product:
We have the pleasure of creating 100’s of cakes every week for our customers, whether it be an elaborate 5 tier wedding cake, to the custom Birthday and special occasion cakes, or the ready to go cakes we sell out of our display coolers for last minute celebrations… And the trend that we are so happy about is Buttercream! Our business has changed so much from day 1, back in 2007 when it seemed like fondant cakes were all the rage, and what all of our customers wanted to order. The fact that we are able to be recognized as a cake shop at the forefront of Buttercream cake decorating, with an international Online school devoted to nothing but Buttercream cake decorating, a class on Craftsy, and a huge fan base of almost 90,000 Followers on Instagram, that remind us every time we post a photo why we #lovewhatwedo. It blows our mind that this is what our business has changed into, and we are so happy for it! Here are a few photos of what is currently trending with our awesome customers

Back in April, we were commissioned by the Cleveland Art Museum to create a centerpiece for the 100th anniversary Gala of the Association of Art Museum Directors Association’s 100th Anniversary! This organization originated in Cleveland and the gala included Prominent Art Directors from all over the nation! Lauren and I had so much fun creating it, we love being able to be artistic and creative with sugar!
