SHOW ME HOW
The latest to come along is Sugar Sugar Cake Studio, the creation of Ted Scutti, who is "President and Sugar Artist."
Indeed, to look at his still-under-construction website -- complete with a darling logo designed by former New Times-er Jason Hill -- Scutti has a way with edible sculptures.
The "sugar artist" has a gallery of fancy cookies, whimsical cakes covered in colorful fondant shapes, towers laden with cupcakes, and (my favorite) cake pops.
Not sure which I like more -- the cake pops that resemble darling little mannequins in evening gowns, or the ones that look like bloodshot eyeballs. Cute and creepy both work for me.
