We love to be challenged by something. Martha Stewart Weddings came to us early last summer and asked us to contribute to a cake story for the winter issue. What was our inspiration to be? China. They gave us a whole bunch of china tableware to be inspired by. My favorite was the china from Hermes. The colors were bold and the pattern intricate and I was excited to see how the crew would execute this design. Once again, I was blown away at what the team accomplished. The execution was clean and deliberate and the color palette complimented a look that was modern and masculine.
I always come back to this, inspiration. If we didn’t have it – it would be really tough for us to do our job. If you are a baker and working with a client trying to figure out a design for their wedding cake, ask them what kind of china they registered for. You never know, your inspiration could be in their tableware.
