Baked: Crystal Cake
Earlier in the week I made this crystal cake for a client’s going away party. I had initially designed it (in sketch form) to just have a few large crystals at the top, but as I was making the sugar rocks, I knew I had to add in more – they were just too pretty not to! I made the hard candy myself and then dyed / colored each piece after breaking the sugar apart into rock-esque shapes. I loved working with this rad client and since she was moving from NY to LA (just one month ahead of me!), I knew I had to make it special. Also, not to sound like a narcissist, but how smooth is that buttercream!?!
