Petalsweet in American Cake Decorating Magazine!

This past August, right after the ICES Convention, I was contacted by the wonderful and gracious Susan Schultz, Editorial Director for American Cake Decorating magazine. She and her team were putting together a "chocolate" issue for September/October, had seen my display cake at the convention, and wanted to know if I would be interested in having it featured in the magazine! I was thrilled and honored to be asked, and immediately said yes! I answered a bunch of great interview questions and submitted a handful of photos, and then had to sit on the good news until the magazine was published...which finally brings us to this week! I just received some copies of the magazine in the mail to save and show my family and friends...and I wanted to share some photos with you!

Here is the stack of magazines in my office (I can't stop smiling at this photo):

And here is a photo of the entire cake inside the magazine, along with a lovely editorial taken from my interview:

Many, many thanks to Susan and her team at American Cake Decorating for the fabulous feature and the wonderful opportunity! And thank you so much to all of you who followed along as I created my ICES design...and for your encouragement and kind words!

More news...more flowers...coming soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
