Maybe it’s that CupcakesDaily instagram account I’ve been looking at way too much lately, or those chocolate candy cane sprinkle cookies they were giving out at Costco the other day, but already December has got me thinking about yumminess in a major way. So here I am, celebrating another master of sweet culinary perfection: my friend Heather.
Whereas the cakes I make can’t even manage to be as straight and symmetrical as the box they come from, Heather’s spongy creations, such as this pirate ship for girls which I love for so many reasons (such as that killer glitter skull), are almost too beautiful to eat. This mother of two and founder of Willow Tree Cakery truly puts the art back in culinary arts.
So thank you Heather, you inspire me.
