A cake is a cake.
Sure, you have your cake flavors, fillings, butter creams, fondants, and general cake shape. But How do you incorporate a personal style into your cake so that it’s just as gorgeous on the outside as it’s delicious on the inside? And, better yet, what if it was all edible?!
Now you can have your cake — and eat it, too!
Lisa’s a sweet chick. No really, she’s totally into sweets. She started out decorating cakes for fun, and now she adds bits of fun and frill, working with brides to customize edible decor from her online store. Lisa also has a chemistry background, so she’s a total pro who knows the science behind the final product. Talk about a perfect concoction of brains and beauty! The Southern Californian sugar artist makes designs fresh to order and her careful packaging makes sure you can receive your perfectly-in tact design no matter where you live.
So how does one get in the business of sugary beauty for cakes? Back in 2002, Lisa the cake decorator needed life-like butterflies for very special cupcakes. After searching high and low, she could not find anything that looked real enough. She did what any determined artist would do: she made her own! They became such conversation pieces, Lisa decided it was fine time to provide them to the public and now her etsy shop, SugarRobot has — pardon the pun — taken flight! These delicate beauties are made of kosher wafer paper and food colors, and each individual item is carefully cut by hand. So as you can see, every detail has been considered for your wedding cake needs!

The sugary creations would also make an engagement party or day after brunch very festive! Even an annual birthday cake can share some frosting and candles real estate with a flower cascade or dragonfly — all made out of sugar!
