Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about what my long-term goals are for this little company I’ve started. Most entrepreneurs will tell you, it can be hard to find and keep focus... and I’m pretty distract-able. After 2+ years, it feels like I’m (maybe) finally finding my place and voice, and and a few things have crystallized in my mind. Food is community, and food is art. If you’re me, food primarily means cake and art often means an edible flower garden as the go-to medium (but I digress).
This recent project feels like the perfect marriage of those ideas. Working with the amazing women behind Talking to Crows once again reminded me of the many facets of community. They use their work to tell the stories of our town, of the people that give it life, and I’m honored to be among them. This painted cake was inspired by another local artist, Kendra Castillo… so basically a trifecta of local inspiration and talent.
Between wedding cakes, baking production, and humble gardening ambitions, there's constant experimentation, growth, and a never-ending learning curve. Follow along to see what I'm up to.
