Christmas Rose

Christmas is coming: a decorated cake is a great idea to spread Christmas spirit!

Christmas Rose and Winterberries are all-time classics for the holiday season.

Flowers, berries and leaves are entirely made by hand with gumpaste.

Merry Christmas, and God bless us everyone!

Sugar Art Contest – Part two

The Sugar Art Contest by Maison Madeleine is now officially into its second phase.

I submitted my video presentation on youtube for evaluation, along with the other contestants.

Please follow this link and click on “Like” if you like my cake.

You need a free youtube account to cast your vote.

Contest – First tier results

Although it was enrolled only on the last possible day, the Hydrangea cake received enough votes to pass on to the second tier of the “Sugar Art Contest” started by Maison Madeleine from Bologna!

Following contest rules, participants shall provide a 60-second presentational video. The video will describe the participant’s cake-designing abilities, and introduce a new cake.

Videos must be submitted to Maison Madeleine by May the 31st, and will be posted to Youtube in the “Sugar Art Contest – fase 2” channel, awaiting for votes from Facebook fans.

Prizes will be awarded by a panel of industry experts:

Mara Accettura, journalist with La Repubblica delle Donne, culture and news section
Carlo Gavaudan, manager & TV producer
Giusy Verni, cake designer
Toni Brancatisano, cake designer

Prizes awarded by the jury are final.

The contest was started for fun, and with that same idea I’m embarking in the second pahase of this wonderful adventure. But first of all I’d like to thank and embrace all those who got themselves involved in this game with me, those who voted for my cake and allowed me to keep dreaming about sugar gardens.
