A Dog Gone Wedding Day!

Today is absolutely GORGEOUS! What a fabulous Spring day for a wedding.

When Kim & Chris first came to me, they were to be married last June. However with the hard economic times, their wedding became postponed for the following Spring. Even though the date had changed, the vision for their wedding cake had not. A life-sized replica of their dog "Pugsley" complete with a miniature 2 tier wedding cake for them! I love it when couples personalize their cakes. I've been looking forward to creating this unique 3D art piece for their wedding for quite some time - so when I started to make it yesterday, I was a happy camper in the kitchen.

Pugsley is entirely cake and entirely edible. Working off pictures and after some consultation with a good friend of mine and dog cake maker extraordinaire Debbie of Debbie Does Cakes, I took my cake tools in hand and sculpted away bringing Pugsley to life!

Congratulations Kim & Chris - I hope you enjoy your cake as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Recently I had the privilege to have been interviewed for East of the City Magazine - Durham Region's premier lifestyle magazine. During the hour long interview, we talked about all things cake! It was fun to look back at all that has transpired over the past 8+ years!

For those of you interested in reading the web based article, you can find it here:

Thanks to all my clients who have helped make Flour Confections what it is today!

I heart Ron Ben - and this is why...

As most of you know, I recently took my 2nd class with Ron Ben-Israel, and I loved every minute of it.
Ron has such a wonderful personality and fun spirit - he is really passionate about what he does and it shows in everything he does. Watch this video clip and you will see why I heart him!
