The Cake Courtesan
After more than 20 years of delighting family and friends with her decorated cakes, owner and head cake designer Sharon White decided to turn her love of all things sweet into a full-time cake-design business. Following the success of her 1950s-inspired shop, Nostalgia Cupcakes, Sharon was ready to test her sugar-sculpting skills on more opulent sweets, and so she left the retro-theme desserts in the past and forged a more sophisticated future with a custom couture-cake boutique, The Cake Courtesan. After just one year in business, the shop had already earned a spot on the 2012 Platinum List from luxury wedding source Grace Ormonde thanks in part to the detail of Sharon's designs, which have been known to include everything from giant handmade sugar flowers to frosting-based lacework. Her boutique crafts its gourmet treats in fresh, limited amounts every day, offering a long list of rotating flavors as well as daily favorites that prefer to sit still.
