Ana's Custom Cakes
Wedding cakes come in all shapes, sizes and styles these days. Here's a tribute to those who express their artistic creativity in such an extraordinary manner ... creating edible works of art, a true celebration of the senses, for your special day. I'm so in awe of these artists I could literally devote a whole blog to just this one subject. The sugary confection, the visual aesthetic, the taste of these marvels in all their infinite varieties, the combination of talents needed to pull off this exquisite venture ... whew... it's mindblowing. But I should let the artitsts, or is it bakers, speak for themselves.

Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes is not known for his conventional take on the almighty cake.
