Sweet Inspiration

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.
