Cakes Can Be Art -- Just Look At These!

Looking for inspiration for a cake you are decorating? Try these YouTube videos from the San Diego Cake Club Show. Some really wowed! Could I duplicate these? No way! But a true artist could. Use these just for inspiration and so you have an idea what CAN be done.  Even if you can't do it yourself or afford an artist who can!

Most cities have a cake show of one sort or another, so look for one in a city near you. You don't have to travel across the country to get to San Diego (though it is a great place to visit!)
