Pastry Chef Linda Rothgeb of Cakes by Linda, is known for her sugarpaste flowers and you can see some great examples of her work on her website. But this cake is truly a most unique design. Here’s her story on a wedding cake that mixed fashion with football:
“The bride came to me, asking to duplicate in sugarpaste the shoe she was wearing under her gown on her wedding day. She wanted this high heeled shoe up on an angle as if it were kicking a Penn State football through a goal post. It was a very unusual request – especially for a wedding cake. Later, the bride called to say how thrilled she was with the cake – especially the fashionista shoe! It was my first high heeled shoe done in sugarpaste. What fun!”
It might have been your first shoe, Linda, but I doubt if it will be your last. Whatever your wedding cake (or groom’s cake) vision, Linda can bring it to life. To schedule your consultation, call 703.893.4782 and be sure to visit cakesbylinda.com.
