In our September Fabulous Finishes issue, we sit down with cake artist extraordinaire, Jacqui Kelly to talk about the incredible cake installation she created with a team of Renshaw sugar artists at the New York Cake Show. “Be our Guest” was a Broadway inspired edible art piece, with titular characters from some of Broadways most beloved shows, brought to life in sugar. The American Cake Decorating and Renshaw Americas sponsored project was the hit of the show. We share some incredible pictures of the installation in our ACD Extra’s feature.
Chocolate and orange is a delicious and classic flavor pairing. Rose Brown of Shiny Ball Cakes and Creations spices up this classic recipe with the addition of a rich and creamy cardamom Swiss meringue buttercream and a fun orange fennel brittle. “This recipe is always such a hit with everyone,” notes Rose. “It’s familiar and yet surprising. I think the delicate fennel flavor and the addition of the brittle really kicks it up a notch.”
Our resident Cakeologist, Kara Andretta is no stranger to recipe experimentation and culinary madness, in fact, it’s what we love about her.
