Sweet tooth.

So, I’m extremely excited.  And here’s why: today is CAKE TASTING SATURDAY!!!!!

You guys sent me a ton of recommendations (which I could not possibly appreciate more!) and one name kept popping up here in NYC:

http://alittlesomethinsweet.com

Adam Beckworth is originally from Texas  (I feel like that begs for some sort of snappy joke about bigger cakes- I’ll let you know when I smooth that one out.  Bear with me, I’m a smidge hungover).  He grew up baking & decorating cakes but moved to NY to act almost 15 years ago.  He went on to work in the graphic design world for several years, until he decided to pursue his baking passion full time.  He describes his cake style as bold, graphic, clean and modern, and he’s drawn to unique flavor profiles made from scratch with fresh ingredients.

Here’s the other cool thing: he’s one of those amazing cake artists who can make cakes that look nothing like cakes.  He needs to be on one of those TLC shows, his skill blows my mind.  I first learned about Adam’s talent when my best friend (and marriage officiant! I’ll write about that another day), Ellie, showed me a picture of this cake from our mutual friend Melanie’s bachelorette party.  Mel loves a good cheese plate…so he created this for her:

Yep. It's a CAKE.

I checked out Adam’s website & saw these ridiculously amazing pieces of delicious art:

Did you hear that part about this being a CAKE?

Also, please look at these cupcakes. CUPCAKES!!!!!

These are cupcakes. Are you freaking out yet?!

This is just insanity.

At some point, they're too pretty too eat. I mean, not really- I could eat 12 right now.

 

Lest you fear I’m doing a giant Doritos bag wedding cake, Adam does traditional cakes as well & they are all obscenely beautiful.

I want to lick this immediately

 

Are you looking at your computer screen in complete disbelief? Cause seriously, I’ve shown my friends these pictures a hundred times already & I’m still in awe.

So Richie & I are off this am to meet the great wizard behind the curtain at A Little Somethin Sweet.  I hope to be in a borderline blood sugar emergency by the time I leave.

Will post all about it asap!

xoxo,
