So unless someone gives me a picture of exactly what they want, I usually have my own ideas in my head. I never sketch it out as in the past I have and it doesn't turn out that way. I always end up changing things as I go along because I feel some things work and some don't. I try to make a cake that pops out. Something that people will remember and see from across the room and say "WOW". That is when I know I did my job as a cake artist. Usually people don't want to cut the cake. It gives me Great pleasure to cut a cake because to me , the inside matters just as much as the outside.
