Sharing a friend’s success! YUM!

Travel is wonderful not just for what we see but also for who we meet. On our recent tour of Sicily, we met Cat Harper, a fab photographer who loamed me some of her shots of food for my book (the average shot of food in Sferracavallo was mine) Here is an example of Cat’s work–as a photographer and as a cake decorator.
She is fab!!!!!!
Cat Harper has only been professionally decorating cakes for the past 4 years but has been in the party planning business for over 25 years. She was a wedding photographer who became a party planner and then added the cakes to round out the artistic end of the business. Largely self-taught, she has always been that Mom or Aunt who made the cool cakes for the family. Over the last 4 years she has taken a few Master’s Courses but still depends on the caking community and YouTube to help her learn new techniques. Her latest achievement was having this Beatrix Potter cake featured in Cake Central Magazine. The cake features a fondant covered cake with hand molded sugar characters, leaves and vines as well as hand painting techniques that detail out the story of Johnny Townmouse.
Tried to upload her photo from Cake Central Magazine, June 2013 issue, but cannot–am having trouble with my google account–please do look it up –it is fantastic!!!!!!!!!
Be sure to check out her work on her sites!
