It is a small world indeed
By chance I ran into Christy Platt owner of Simply Layered when we were both working in the same business complex. We knew each other from "Let Them Eat Cake" in Costa Mesa a cake shop we both interned together at a few years ago, but haven't seen each other since. She has gone on to start her cake business and I now make custom sugar (gumpaste) flowers.
It was just the right timing we met since she needed someone to make sugar flowers. Her passion is baking and designing cakes and mine of course are the sugar (gumpaste) flowers. As much as I love to create flowers my way, realistic I know Christy likes a more modern take to incorportate in her cakes and we have been working extremely well together.
Here are some dramatic red orange Cymidium Orchids without much of the detail I typically add. I do love the coloring of it.
