Let´s play under the sea!

Cake collaborations are a big deal inside the cake decorating world and as you´ve seen my last two posts have been about them and this one is no exception.

With this year´s quarantine and social distance, most of us cake artists have turned into online work, groups and collaborations to showcase our work, meet new cake friends and promote our business. Also cake groups on social media platforms have been growing, giving us a big sense of community and providing amazing opportunities like working together on international cake collabs.

As my group hosted their first cake collab last month, my dear friend Gerardo Zarco´s group Sugar Mad also hosted their first one and here I´ll tell you all about it.

Sugar Mad Group

Gerardo Zarco, an amazing Mexican chef and sugar artists came up with the idea of a Mermaid theme collaboration when he was still member of another group, but with the opening of his new group ,Sugar Mad, he decided to make this collaboration as their first major activity in a way of bringing his community together, which has been his goal all along.

Gerardo , alongside his great friend, also an amazing sugar artists Daniela Cabrera Godinez, decided to co-host ” In the Realm of Mermaids a Journey Through the Fantasy”, an international cake collaboration which I was part of along with 54 great sugar artists.

As Gerardo told me , the idea was to present to the world of cake design his new group and to showcase the amazing pieces of his great cake community.

He started with 80 subscriptions and received a total of 54 pieces, all mermaids and merman, under the sea scenarios and fantasy all around.

His idea has always been to support each other as a big cake community and to see their members happy doing what they love.

It was a great opportunity for new artists to work on their first cake collaboration and showcase their work to the world as well as an opportunity, and I have to say an excuse, for many of us to get into the magical world of Mermaids and let our creativity run free.

Here is my Mermaid, Amethyst Coralie a bas-relief piece I made using sugar paste, modeling paste, gelatin paper and rice paper sails. Of course, she had to be purple and I just love how she is emerging form the waves. I used an illustration as inspiration for this one.

I can only invite you to check out all these amazing pieces and to get to know the artists by visiting the official Facebook Page and sharing your support with us

Happy Birthday Harry Potter!

Yes,

Big Potterhead in the house!

Guilty of loving all the Harry Potter books and movies. So, being me and having the most amazing group fo cake friends in our Facebook group Cake Friends Stay Creative. I decided to do a very fun activity with our group to celebrate Harry Potter´s birthday.

It all started just a few months ago and with the idea of a cake collaboration. We didn´t have too much time to make a big cake collab in just two months so I decided to run a cake collaboration for next year about Harry Potter. However, I asked in the group if anyone would be interested in participating in some live demos for July 31st ( Harry´s birthday) and the answer was so overwhelming that me, being me, decided to make a big event in our group that included: A full day of live demos, a mini cake collaboration and the share of Harry Potter edible creations in the group. And it was fantastic!!!

I can go on and on about how wonderful it was, about the help I had from amazing cake friends, about the enthusiasm and love from my fellow cake artists to participate but this post is really about showing you our ” small” but FULL of talent cake collab and to showcase my fellow cake artists amazing work and to tell them how very proud and grateful I am for each one of them.

I have no words to describe the talent, my heart is full of joy for their commitment and participation, and I humbly thank them for going along with my craziness and be part of this celebration.

So, without further ado, let me show you our Harry Potter Birthday Celebration- International cake collaboration 2020 edition

Meet my witches and wizards!
