Let Them Eat Cake!

My friend's daughter Jennifer recently celebrated her Sweet Sixteen birthday with this whimsical cake designed by artist Melissa Hutton. When I saw these photos of the cake I had to share them! The cake has a pink & black cheetah-print frosted background laced with large strands of pearls and amazing charms made of molded marzipan! Too pretty to eat! The charms represent some of Jen's favorite things like Columbia University logo (she is attending a summer writing program), New York & the Eiffel Tower, (she loves NYC & dreams of Paris), a key (representing getting a driver's license at 16).

Melissa Hutton is not only a cake designer but an amazing painter. Melissa has been an active member of the San Francisco art scene since 1992. Check out some of her fine work on these wonderful chairs and paintings.
