Though Let 'em Eat Cake formed under the direction of Anne Pickens, the torch has now been passed to her daughter, Sara. Following the teachings of her mother, but adding her own adventurous flair, Sara crafts baked treats that range from gourmet cookies and lemon bars to cupcakes and customized, full-sized cakes. Like an artist paints with a brush or a newborn burps, Sara wields buttercream and fondant with panache, using cake to sculpt 3-D renditions of anything imaginable, including newspapers, bottles of Patron, and Santa hats. Cakes are available in flavors such as carrot, strawberry, and vanilla.
For cupcakes, Sara has assembled an arsenal of more than 30 flavors, including pineapple upside-down cake, maple bacon, and pumpkin spice. Sara also consults for weddings, and crafts cakes for any occasion including graduations, birthdays, baby showers, and prison escapes.
