So this is probably not the post you'd expect to follow our previous one, but here it is. We spent the afternoon in a room filled with cakes - literally. Wall-to-wall cakes. (Not too worry, we hit the gym before we went. We are well aware of our temptations.)
I know what you're thinking - "where were you and how can I go there too?" Well that's the good news, you can totally go there yourself and, if you're a bride, you can order a stunningly gorgeous custom wedding cake in the process. It's the showroom of Ana Parzych Custom Cakes in Cheshire. If you haven't seen her work before, allow us to introduce you to her art because that's really what these cakes are - pieces of art. Which makes sense actually because Ana studied art and graphic design before getting into wedding cakes. She works side-by-side with her husband Garry who does quite a bit of the baking himself while also running the business side of things. It was great to get to talk to them over the course of the afternoon - we always love to see how fellow husband-and-wife teams work.
We had worked with Ana & Garry this past May and we were absolutely blown away by their talent. They build completely custom cakes based on whatever their couple is looking for - Ana even does sketches of the cake beforehand and works with the couples one-on-one to make THE perfect cake for them. So when Garry got in touch with us earlier this month and asked if we would come by their showroom and takes some pictures of their cakes we said yes without hesitation. Not just because we love cakes, but mainly because we just love working with other artists that have pride in what they do, which they totally do. As a result they are in high demand - working throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York as well as international destinations. They even had a wedding in Dubai this year!
That was our lovely afternoon, spending time with another husband-and-wife team and photographing some gorgeous cakes. One of the many, many reasons we love what we do. The fact that they also sent us home with small cake of our very own was a total bonus. (I know...I'm setting the alarm as we speak to wake up for the gym tomorrow!)
So without further ado, here are some of Ana's cakes for your viewing pleasure. Be sure to leave Ana & Garry some love in the comments, or with a phone call to make your own cake. Delicious!
