Facebook is great for reconnecting with old friends. It's also a great way to keep an eye on my artistic friend's projects and new creations. And I guess the same can be said about me and my cakes because I recently got a cake request from an old high school friend named Lisa out of the blue. Lisa is also a nail artist who owns her own studio spa in Oakville and does amazing work. Since I have a wedding coming up, I thought this would be a great chance to not only see each other and get caught up, but also to trade services. Best Decision Ever!! Initially I thought about making a giant nail polish bottle for Lisa's cake, but she said she liked light cakes, berries and whipped cream - the lighter stuff. It's pretty tough to carve a fruit filled cake, so I opted for another choice. I used her website for some inspiration, and had lots of fun making the 100% edible nail art tools. Inside is essentially a strawberry short cake - vanilla sponge cake with layers of fresh strawberries and real whipped sweet cream.
I had a great time chatting with Lisa and catching up. I also enjoyed the super awesome pampering my feet received! She did a great job on my toes and sent me home with a yummy smelling jar of foot cream. Just look how great they are! And those are *real* flowers, by the way. Shenazy!
I baked my first cookie at the age of 5, and have been in love ever since. The smiles on people's faces when they taste my creations is what keeps my passion alive!
