• Inspiration vs. Perspiration

  • Making a sketch of the cake design is one of the most valuable services offered to our customers here at Fancy That Cake!  With so many beautiful photographs of amazing cakes to be found on the Internet, sometimes it's easy for customers to find a picture of what they want and say, "I want a cake that looks like this," or, "I want a cake like this, except with different colors," or no flowers or whatever.  But sometimes you just can't find exactly what you're looking for no matter how hard you look.  You might like the pearls on one cake, and the lace on another, and the colors on another, the floral arrangement on still another... that's when having a cake artist like me (Katie, Fancy That Cake) can make your life so much easier!  I will take all of your ideas and sketch you a design.  Then I will submit the design for your approval, and I will revise the sketch as many times as necessary until we arrive at the perfect vision for your cake.  I make cake sketches for not only wedding cakes, but any cake for any occasion (birthday cakes, anniversary cakes, bridal shower cakes, baby shower cakes... or any other special event).  And once I've sketched it, as the photos in this gallery will plainly show, you can expect your cake to look just as good as the drawing I give you.  My sketch is like a promise I make to you.  I would never draw something that I wasn't confident I could recreate in real life to be just as beautiful as the sketched design.  There is no "extra" charge for this service.  The cake sketch is just as valuable to me as it is to the customer, because that way I know that what I'm creating is exactly what my customer wants.
