So I told you I finally finished my PhD-- but now what's going on here??
Well, first I had to catch my breath. Ten years of college and writing a dissertation really take a lot out of you. To celebrate, I'm taking a 12 day trip to South Africa, leaving July 4th. I'll be going to Cape Town, Kruger National Park, and Victoria Falls, and boy am I excited. Hoping to have fabulous pictures to share with you all!!
Now of course there's never a dull moment for me, and there's some pretty big news. First, I started working part time last week at Highland Bakery in the Old Fourth Ward in Atlanta. If you've never been, it's one of the top rated brunch places and is also the residence of fabulous cake and sugar artist, Karen Portaleo. So I am now a part-time member of her fabulous team, and I'm very excited about it. I'll be sure to start bringing my camera to work so you can see what's going on over there. :)
On top of that, I am pleased to announce that I have officially found a way to fully integrate Cake and Engineering. I have officially formed The Cake Engineer LLC in Georgia, and this will be my company for classes and supplies. That's right, you might have noticed I implemented a 'Buy Now' button on right side of this blog for my stiletto instructions, and that's just the beginning. While this is in its infancy stages, I will be developing specialized cutters and molds for the gum paste stilettos, class DVD's, new classes, and more! These things take time, but watch for new changes coming this way!
In the mean time, I intend to write some more blog posts-- not just about cakes or sugar art projects that I've made, but with some general info for cake artists, brides-to-be, and cake enthusiasts alike.
Stay tuned, and as always, please let me know if there's something you'd like to see here! Can't wait to share this big adventure with all of you.
Have a delicious day. :)
