Get Inspired

If you’ve visited the cake page or social media accounts, you’ve seen a wide range of flavors, techniques and styles, but maybe you need a prompt or examples so you have the words to describe what you want. Ideally, every cake I create is unique in some way, suited to your tastes, both in flavor and design. You’ll find some examples below, but this is by no means an exhaustive list. Some ingredients, materials or tools aren’t easy to find in Juneau but if I can get them, there are few limits.

You may notice that the majority of my cakes rely on Swiss meringue buttercream for decor — it’s ideal for a lot of the techniques I employ and it is superior in flavor to American buttercream, in my opinion. I limit use of fondant and modeling chocolate, preferring to use them for select sculptural elements that are easy to remove so you can enjoy the unadulterated flavors of the cake, filling and frosting. I also prefer to create custom designs rather than copy another baker’s design, though I often employ the same techniques and design principles as other bakers, so you can have a good idea of what to expect when using other bakers’ work as inspiration.
