These past few days have been very exciting! How do you like the new site? I think it’s more clean, and it definitely shows Cakeb0t’s personality. Cakeb0t is a futuristic robot with a penchant for all things vintage. ^_^
All of the links are the same, but I tried to make it so that the site is easy to navigate. Also in the top right corner is the FREE buttercream eBooklet, The Icing on the Cake! There is still one more link, The Shop link, which is still under construction. I get a lot of emails about what to buy, and so this is one of my solutions. (Yay!)
Other exciting things have happened…
Cake Power was on TV! Fabulous Cakes, New York, was taped during my heavenly externship days at Cake Power. I got to work with an all-star NY team! EatCakeBeMerry’s Liz Shim, The Painted Lily’s Katie Robinson, a fellow ICE grad, Shena D., a very talented artist, Daphne B, and of course Kate Sullivan of Cake Power! Kate is so super sweet and funny, and I think the show really did a good job of portraying her warm personality. They shot in her workspace/home, and you even had the chance to see her husband David and cutiepie son Sam on the show!
I was really impressed by the caliber of all the cakes in this episode. The team at City Cakes made an alligator cake that was a scaly work of art, and another cake which included detailed architecture! Michelle Doll was also featured in the episode, and she had some really great techniques for molding, as well as using steam to give sugarpaste creations a sheen. Of course Kate’s two cakes- one four foot dog, and one giant mushroom topped with a gnome bride and groom, both defied gravity. She is truly a cake sculptor. You have to watch her in action!

I had so much fun taping the show with the Cake Power team! I also was really excited to see all of us on TV. Even though I didn’t speak on the show, you can definitely see me quite a bit on the show! Yay! ^_^
Cakeb0t’s new look couldn’t have come at a better time! Thanks to everyone who tuned in! I’m listing this blog under cake decorating ideas, because the show and everyone I’ve listed on this page is SO inspiring for all cake artists!
