In November of 2008 I shook off my veil of flour, rolled my last sheet of fondant, and said au revior to my love, my nemesis -- CAKE ~ taking a much needed, indefinite hiatus from the Cakerie. I am pleased to report that my health, my happiness, and my family are much better for it. But, since closing down my website, I've had requests from friends and fans of my sculpted cake art for access to a gallery of my work. I'm honored, flattered, and tickled (just not enough to nudge me out of retirement. Following are some photos of my favorite creation, "Crab Cake with a Squeeze of Lemon." To the right of this post you'll find a slideshow of some of my other favs.


  1. OMG! Before reading the blurb I thought this was going to be something on "how to cook a crab"! My goodness, I hope that talent doesn't stay on hiatus for too long!

  2. OMG! Without first reading the blurb the picture led me to believe that it was going to be something about how to cook a crab! My goodness, that talent is born, not made! Hope it doesn't stay on hiatus for too long!
