You wouldn't think that New York City is the place to find wildflowers but in the last few weeks two separate projects sprung up with them.

The first is The High Line, found down in the meatpacking district. It is a beautiful new park that was created on top of an old elevated train track that runs through Manhattan. It opened just two weeks ago with the help of NYC, The Parks Dept. and Friends of the High Line.

The second project blooming with wildflowers was a small wedding cake we created for Elegant Bride magazine. The official photographs will come out this Fall in the magazine but here is a preview. All the flowers are made of gum paste.

Hi...just wanted to let yo know - your creations are amazing (: I hail from Pakistan and it's a pity we hardly have anyone who can create such beautiful pieces. Most of the South Asian sub-continent is still stuck on basic chocolate mousse cakes!!

This houndstooth skirt is absolutely adorable Coach Outlet. The houndstooth pattern is so high fashion and funky. Even thougth this skirt is black Coach Coach Bags and white, the detail is so fashionable. It is a high waisted skirt, which makes it even better. The length of the skirt is perfect for a date or a day of shopping. You can purchase this skirt. Jean shorts are so cute Coach Op Art Bags and great for the summer time. They are good for wearing to the beach or to go shopping. These shorts are especially adorable because they Coach Satchel Bags have big buttons and a lot of pockets. The pockets and the buttons make the shorts look so much more feminine.

Sometimes simple is better, and in this case, it is.
