This morning I woke up with a taste for wedding cake. Yep. Wedding cake. On the rare occasion that I get to bring home slices of wedding cake from an event, I like to put it in the refrigerator and eat it first thing in the morning. I know that may seem somewhat odd, but the early morning for me is usually the most peaceful and my taste buds are at their best. But this Thursday morning has no cake in sight.
A few weeks back, I ran into a stunning cake shop called Magpie’s Cake (maybe I’ve been thinking about it subconsciously this morning). The owner, Maggie LaBaugh, attended the L’art de la Patisserie program at the French Pastry School and graduated with honors. Her cakes are elegant and custom made to order.
Slices start at $10 each with a minimum order of $250. Fresh flowers are never used because of potential pesticides coming into contact with the cake. However, she does offer amazing hand-crafted sugar flowers that look not only better, but won’t wilt or turn brown. Oh, and she even offers embellished sugar cookies!
Maybe my fixation with cakes has something to do with missing my cake decorating class. Unfortunately, my 2nd level class was canceled last month due to low registration. I was told that weekday classes usually fill up while the weekend classes (the one I signed up for) can be iffy. Seems like the opposite would be true. However, the good news is that they will be offering up the class again in October. I’ll keep my fingers crossed….
