Myrtle Shoot Sneak Peek

Last week one of my cakes was in a photo shoot! Whitney, owner of the Echo Park clothing shop Myrtle, put on a shoot for her June look book. There was lots of dress trying, fancy lighting, champagne, and plenty of laughs in between. Did I mention I also got to model?! Let’s just say I’m not quitting baking anytime soon… hah!

The cake was made up of five layers of vanilla and confetti (my version of funfetti) cake with strawberry swiss meringue buttercream. I just love making tall cakes. Six inch rounds are my standard size, which sounds small but deceivingly feeds a lot of people.

You can visit the Myrtle tumblr for more behind the scenes photos. I can’t wait to see the finished look book!

Do you need a cake for a special occasion, or maybe no occasion at all? All Matchbox Kitchen cakes are made with organic flour, sugar, eggs, and milk. Customer favorites include carrot cake with cream cheese swiss meringue buttercream, fresh strawberries and cream, and triple chocolate cake. Our cakes are never too sweet and only use the highest quality ingredients. For more information, email me at sara AT (Delivery available within Los Angeles area.)

  1. so lovely. the start of an illustrious modeling career?!

    speaking of funfetti, i actually made plain-old-not-so-great-made-from-the-box funfetti cupcakes today because the kids in my sister’s class told her that’s what they wanted for a last day of school treat. i was actually glad i didn’t have to make something from scratch because after i volunteered to make them, she decided she’d bring some for the 4th and 5th graders in the classroom next to hers too – i made over 50 cupcakes! it was intense!
