A Chef When I Grow Up...

by Sarah Atkinson
(Splendora Texas)





A Chef Party

My 5 year old's FAVORITE play pastime is pretending to cook. When her birthday came around, she requested a "Chef" party.

Many Intricate Layers


I went all out, starting with a cutting board base that held fondant green beans & carrots, a white chocolate cracked egg shell, where a fondant yolk swam in piping gel to resemble the raw egg.

A fondant cookie cutter was painted silver & Placed on some "dough rolled out & ready! Finishing our accessories on the bottom where a bag of flour from RKT & a cookbook, ("5th Edition of course!) Written by Chef Kayla! (My baby girl!)

The bottom base was a giant spaghetti pot, painted silver & complete with handles, and Ferrero Roche "meatballs". The cake itself was chocolate with classic southern buttercream. The middle "layer" was the best meal of the day!

Banana Pancakes


Breakfast pancakes were made from banana cake & hand carved. Fondant bacon & eggs framed the plate well & was finished off with precious addition of black sugar crystal "pepper" on the eggs & a healthy pat of "butter" drizzled in REAL syrup!

Chinese Takeout Anyone


The top was Chinese take out, some Lo Mein Noodles with bits of fondant Carrot & Broccoli accessorized with green non-perils. Only the cutting board, white breakfast plate & chopsticks & takeout box weren't edible.

My Inspiration


She was in heaven when she saw it! My self taught cake skills are inspired by my two girls who are the loves of my life!

Always a work of art!
by: Steven

I've seen some amazing things come out of Sarah's kitchen, and this has got to be the one of the best, if not the best! Not only is Sarah continuously inspired by her own designs and girls' ideas, but I'm sure the girls are inspired much the same. This cake is win. 'Nuff said!

This cake is professional, beautiful, and creative
by: AnoRubynymous

I am amazed at the quality of this woman's work every time I see one of her creations, but this is one of my top three favorite's of hers, hands down. The realism, the skill, the creative genius is show-stopping! Everyone always love to eat the cakes too; they rave about the flavor just as much as the decorations. I went to culinary school and worked in bakeries, and have seen no cake as all around fantastic as Sarah's.

As a foodie myself, I appreciate the exquisite detail in every aspect of this cake. It all looks so real! Even up close it looks SO realistic! And the time and patience and style. I'd give it 10 stars if I could!

I Want To Be a Chef Cake
by: Teresa G.

What a talented cake artist. This is the best cake ever for a person who dreams of being a cake artist.
I have enjoyed seeing Sarah's different cakes over the past few months. It is my understanding she is basically self-taught. Very, very creative. If she doesn't win, I definitely want to see the cake who beats her out.
Sarah keep baking, designing and entering contest for one day you will win big.
