Celebrating Three Years of Blogging: Floral Wedding Cake - 14 August 2010

Today on 14 August 2010, i celebrate by third year of blogging. I can still vividly rememeber how on 14, my first blog was born on celebrating sugarcraft edible creatitivity.Today when i look back, the journey still continues...sometimes i pause, caught up with other affairs of life but then the inspiration never much to learn for perfection ! I have acheived the 100th mark in cakes with 50 wedding cakes and other celebartion cakes and continue to realise ..there is so much to learn....i am still a student..each day heralds newer ideas, hopes and creativity.

I hope you all like this creation of mine made for a wonderful bride who wedding theme was blue and white.

I thank you all who have supported my journey and continue to encourage me with your words and thoughts and pick me up by turning back and lending me your hands.

Let me quote a recent article from Harvard Business Review by Christensen, who says 'I have concluded  that the metric by which God will assess my life isn't dollars but the individual people whose lives I've touched'

Three - Tier Wedding Cake & Roses

This three-tier wedding cake with a spiral effect of the roses was made for a bride whose wedding theme was white and pink. An interesting challenge was to take the cake to a farm near the river where the wedding was to take place. All 25 roses were taken in a separate box on a cotton bed and off I went on an bumpy road to the wedding place. Each rose was then attached to the cake to give the effect the bride had wished for. After completing it, i could only murmur 'whew'. I hope you all like it.

Traditional African Pots Wedding Cake

This wedding cake was made for a bride who loves african theme and it was great joy to do that. The wedding shade was orange so made the roses to match the pots. Made the quills and added feathers and  wheat stalk to give the touch. I hope it reflects the theme well. Recently have been little irregular in uploads and interaction with you lovely bloggers but i guess will soon catch up with your creations.

Wedding Cakes - Basket of Flowers : Dedicated to Scott Clark Wooley

Hi friends, I could not manage to post these wedding cakes which i had made in January as i had gone to India during last week of the January till middle of February for academic and business ventures. Most of the time was spent in Delhi with a little dash off to Rajasthan to say 'hi' to a close friend and then some time at Bangalore and now i am back.
The Basket of Flowers Wedding Cake was what the bride was looking for and i made it in electric green shade to match the bridal theme. The other three-layer cake with a top of Basket of Orange Roses was again made to match the marriage theme.

I also want to share something that a learner in sugarcraft can feel happy about. Among several cake artists that adorn the world and from whom, i continue to draw inspirations, there is one artist, to who, i have dedicated my creations to. Scott Clark Wooley,( ), a great humble artist from whom i can understand what perfection means....a philosopher, a poet, a creator...the virtues are endless.
I cherish the note that he had sent me. Friends, all of you who are passionate about this art must surely meet him. He stays in New York and i envy all those who are in US, who can learn so much from him. Anytime i feel i need to understand some thing, he is there to help me out impromptu through e-mails. One day, i will surely meet him. I do hope you all like my new works.
