This is one of my best friends in the whole world, Liz. I know you’ve seen her with me in San Francisco, and in a few other posts I’ve been writing. So I felt it was time to introduce you. Liz is the one that I have being my “accountabilabuddy”. She is a trained graphic designer like myself, loves working with her hands and is an amazing artist. Her ability to mimic what she see’s is astonishing! I’m constantly amazed and impressed by what she produces.
It was just a couple years ago now, she started making little tiny fondant decorated cakes for friends of ours, who were having bridal showers, which lead to her wanting to make her friends and family birthday cakes, to her realizing she had a real gift, and she loved what she was doing. I knew immediately Liz knew she found her calling. A cake decorator. Honestly, I don’t like calling her that, I like calling her more of a Cake Artist & Engineer. She decided to start her own business and after awhile decided that was what she was going to do full time, after working at other bakeries. She became the owner of Artisan Cake Company. It honestly didn’t take long for people to start finding her online and sending in requests and then name dropping her to others.
She’s really done well for herself and has a lot of aspirations for the future of her talents and her company. I can’t wait to watch behind the curtain to see where she goes. I sorta feel like I could blog about her everyday. She’s just THAT good, and with all the new cakes and cake/cupcake toppers she makes, there’s always SOMETHING awesome to share…hmm maybe I should devote a mini section on the side bar of Liz’s latest & greatest (which would be everything). A great thing is Liz has been going to pastry school, to really get all the fundamentals of being a pastry chef and baker down. Now she’s making up recipes! It’s crazy to see how much she’s grown. (I think I’m starting to sound like a proud mama…lol).Either way check her out! ORDER CAKES FROM HER! SPREAD THE WORD! DO IT! NOW!…….. please?! :)
Here is a mini sample of a few of my favorites that she has posted on her site. I’m sure in the near future you’ll see her on TV, hosting her own show. (Watch out Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss, there’s a NEW girl in town!). I’ve also attached a couple of video’s she’s made for tv show try-0uts. You’ll get to see her awesome personality in action to…and see why I love her so much! :) How’d I get so lucky?
