$59 for a Custom 3-D Cake ($120 Value)
Owner and baker Iris Rodriguez sits down with clients two to three weeks ahead of time to outline their aesthetic vision for custom cakes, which suit wedding days, birthdays, holidays, and other celebrations. Customers sample potential cake flavors before Iris sculpts 3-D renditions of their dream dessert.
The pen stroke of a poet. The flourish of a painter's brush. The tangled staff notes of a musician. The baker and owner of Yummy Bakes, Iris Rodriguez, likens the way she narrates celebrations through custom cakes and cupcakes to the works of any other artist. She sculpts 3-D desserts to reflect the focus of festivities, commemorating nuptials with four tiers of a ribbon-adorned cake in Tiffany blue and birthdays with an edible castle of bubblegum-pink turrets inhabited by princesses. Cartoon characters from Angry Birds and Sesame Street emerge in colorful twists of frosting and fondant, delighting birthday celebrants and confusing Martians trying to understand Earth’s food chain. Iris sometimes weaves her stories by embellishing sweets with edible photographs and images.:m]]
