Cake Ideas from the Wicked Little Cake Company
In my fair city there is a talented baker who runs the Wicked Little Cake Company, which started up in January of this year. Jaime, the Chief Wicked, uses fondant and cake batter like a sculptor uses clay. She can create almost anything you can dream up, including this bleeding heart cake.
Most customers have been family and friends, but with some more exposure, I imagine business should pick up for this independently run one woman baking machine.
I asked Jaime what she digs most about her craft:
I really like the jaw-dropping 'that's a cake?!' aspect of making sculpted cakes and trying to figure out how to make cake do things I never thought possible. Plus I've always liked playing with food - bonus if I get to play with other people's food!
As for tips for anyone trying to create cakes like this, she suggests for maximum creepiness, make things as realistic looking as possible and make everything shiny. Just get in there and get messy.
To learn more about Jaime, her cakes, and how to order one, there's contact info and details on her faq page.
