Killer Cakes – Issue 69

Posted on Jul 15 2013


A new world record?

communications-0b246d0b-df0f-41cb-ae31-413ccd0fdf37-v2Thanks to American Cake Decorating’s SLICE newsletter, I not only learned about the current world’s largest cake, but I learned that TLC’s Cake Boss: Next Great Baker winner, Chef Dana Herbert is about to try and break that record.

Herbert is making the multi-flavored wedding cake in pink to benefit the Susan G. Komen for the Cure southwestern Nevada affiliate. The cake will be made during the International Baking Industry Exposition in Las Vegas, Nevada October 6-9, 2013.

Killer Cakes – Issue 25

Posted on Jun 20 2011


It has certainly been a while, hasn’t it? Sorry for the extended absence (the last newsletter issue was posted on March 28!), but Gayle and I have been really busy. Gayle has been penning a novel, and I’ve been making lots of cakes. Good for business, but not so great for keeping in touch with my friends.

Gayle has added “Monday’s Cake Series Quote” to her Facebook page. Check it out each Monday for a quote from the series. She’s also doing “Sneak Peek Saturday” where she gives readers a glimpse into upcoming books.
