Local Amazing Cake Artist

So now and again I come across things that I MUST share with everyone. Sometimes it's a new recipe, a really great restaurant, or a new kind of food. The same goes when I come across someone with amazing talent. Let me introduce you to Michelle Elias.

Michelle, (we call her Shelly), attended the same college as I did. She isn't just a regular cake maker.. she is a Cake Artist. Some of her works, I swear, could earn her first place on one of those television cake competitions. The best thing about her is that she isn't in it for the money. She does it for the art. Like any profession goes, quality is best achieved when it is done with passion and not just for money. She enjoys her craft and she does it well. She's the kind of person that works WITH you and is able to produce an extraordinary product based on what YOU want. She makes the cake, frosting, and fillings from scratch so you are sure to get a quality product. And they taste every bit as good as they look!

Recently, she created a cake for my wife's birthday. I wanted to surprise her with a cake from Shelly as my wife really likes them. So we discussed what my wife likes. Everything from decoration ideas to flavor of the cake. After talking for a bit, she had all the information that she needed. I posted a picture of it below. My wife LOVES owls. So she got an awesome owl cake! And it tasted SO good!  I recently talked to her about making it and this is what she said:
      "I actually loved working on that cake in particular for you guys. I enjoy the challenge of putting together a design FOR someone, and I look forward to many more cakes and challenges to come."

So whether you are looking for a cake, cupcakes, cookies, baked goods, etc., give Shelly a call or send her a message on Facebook! Any occasion or event you may have, she'll make the perfect cake for you!
