Happy 80th Birthday, Jacques Pepin

Jacques Pepin's 80th Birthday Cake. Created for Martha Stewart. Martha asked me to recreate the cover of Jacques Pepin's groundbreaking cookbook La Technique in cake form to celebrate his 80th birthday. Under the fishy exterior is a devils food cake with a rich ganache filling.

It's Jacques pepin's birthday and we baked him a cake emulating the cover of his breakthrough book La Technique!

New Work: Runway Gingerbread Looks for Vogue

Runway Gingerbread Looks This November Vogue writer Katherine Bernard challenged me to recreate ten of her favorite looks from the 2015 Spring collections as gingerbread cookies. It was a fun project to really sink into; it took a good two days to get all the detailing on the cookies complete. These were definitely the most intricate gingerbread ladies I've ever made!

Some samples below... click over to Vogue to see them all.
