My favorite “Top 10” list is always the Cake List, and how can it not be? After days of research and cake browsing I really just wanted to stop because it was a torture, especially when you are trying to shed some pounds and have the biggest sweet tooth EVER!
In the middle of my search I decided it would be a great idea to make my son’s first birthday cake using fondant. I knew that the store bought fondant tasted pretty terrible so I decided to make my own. After my struggle to make a simple fondant cake I realized that it definitely wasn’t as easy as it looks. I’m blaming my semi-failure on the recipe I used for the fondant. I say semi-failure because although the fondant didn’t look great, it tasted delicious.
So you think you would find the best cakes at some of the well known cake artists’ sites? Well, you are wrong! Most of their cakes made me wonder why they are even famous to begin with. Plus there are a few cake artists that I’ve seen on bake off competitions that either aren’t baking or don’t have a web page to showcase their work. But since I can’t browse every bakery and cake artists’ page I am sure that I have missed some that deserve to be on this list. Do you know of a bakery or cake artist that deserves to be on this list? Please post your favorite, I would love to check it out. But just remember this is my personal Top 10 List. This list is basically a top 10 bakeries and not specific cakes, the pictures are property of their owners.
