Let Them Eat Cake 2012 - Under The Big Top

Every Spring for the past 7 years, City of Hope has hosted a wonderful event called "Let Them Eat Cake". It's held in downtown Philadelphia at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel. This year, the event theme was "Under The Big Top". And it was AMAZING! Talk about the perfect theme to get artists and decorators to use their imaginations and bring their A-game!

Suzy and I worked hard to come up with a design that would defy gravity, show off a number of different techniques, draw people from a distance, and then keep them there with details. And I have to say, we pulled it off!

We were thrilled to walk away with THREE of the five available prizes. We won Most Artistic, Best Use of Theme, and Audience Choice. This was a VERY big deal for us, as it was our first project together! And with the merger of Cakes by Suzy & Truly Custom Cakery, LLC, we REALLY wanted to win as a team!

Enjoy the photos! And stay tuned. We hope to be in our new Cake Boutique before the Summer of 2012!!!

 Hidden Object Fun...

You can find LOTS more photos on our facebook page! We've got a whole album dedicated to the event complete with photos of our competition as well as pictures of the building of the cake! 

We are booked thru June 5 of 2012 but are accepting orders after that! If you need a cake this summer, please contact us ASAP!!!
