I am a frustrated baker at heart. I have always LOVED baking, and wish I could translate my creativity and art skills into amazing cakes. Alas, I do not have the time- and when I do, I often get so frustrated by working with icing that I give up and just eat the hot mess I’ve created. So I am in awe with the work of baker/artist/pastry wizard Alana Jones-Mann in Los Angeles. She makes such incredible cakes and bakes goods- many with clear influences from the design world! Here are a few of my favorites paired with interior compliments!
Can yuo EVEN with this palm leaf wallpaper cake? Because I can’t.
The wallpaper it’s based on.
I mean, Pinterest gold people. GOLD.
How much fun is this Otomi cake?
Inspired by the fabulous fabric handmade in Mexico- great for pillows, bedding and upholstery.
A stunning rock crystal cake.
Agate slice cookies (here’s the how-to if you’re feeling adventurous!)
Check out these gorgeous marble and tile inspired cakes! Right up any decorator’s alley!
I cannot get over this wedding cake and especially these succulent cupcakes!!!!
Succulent planters to decorate any small spot in the home.
A freestyle cake she did “just for fun”. OMG.
So reminds me of one of the work my favorite painters Robert Rea!
Gemstone cupcakes- so glam.
Amethyst geode, great for jazzing up a bookcase.
Agate bookends, ditto to above. :)
And here are some I just love because they are so stunning.
Just a little sweet treat for you on this Wednesday :)
