February 2010


Our producer Stefanie

I am officially back to work this month. There is nothing to get you going like a TV segment on national television. Two weeks ago, I was on the set of the Rachael Ray Show with my friend Buddy Valastro, a.k.a. the Cake Boss. It was a lot of fun, despite having to fit my post-baby body into my pastry jacket; thank goodness for my mom who knows how to move some buttons over and I knew where to find Spanx :-) It was especially exciting to see familiar faces since I was on the show last year. This time I had the much bigger dressing room; last time Paula Abdul was assigned to it. The show date is TBD but should be in March, I’ll keep you posted.

Gotta love false eyelashes from the Rachael Ray Show

This month, Bride's magazine hit newsstands with its annual edition of the 50 Best wedding cakes in America, which I am honored to be a part of. I haven't seen the entire magazine yet but I loved the way our cake turned out. It was my first time designing an oval cake. I think it was a nice marriage between the classic look of the colors with our hand made sugar flowers. I decided to create Japanese Anemones after seeing a spread in Martha Stewart Living showing the real life anemones.


This past week I had a very talented student from Thailand. We created two sculpted cakes, a handbag and an open gift box. We also had a surprise guest. Nick Malgieri, head of the pastry program at ICE, stopped by and gave my student and me signed copies of his gorgeous new book, The Modern Baker.


That’s all for now, if you would like to be notified with our new class list then please join our mailing list by contacting us here.
