Today I had the great pleasure of working with Engaged! Magazine at a luncheon for wedding planners at Oxon Hill Manor. The guest of honor at the luncheon was none other than the Queen of Cake’s herself, Sylvia Weinstock. She was there promoting her new book, Sensational Cakes. I had the great pleasure of meeting with her, and got a signed copy of her book as well. She is the nicest, most down to earth person ever. In her speech she told everyone how she was first a teacher, then a lawyer, then a mom, then a sub and somewhere in between all that she found her love for baking. She started her business at 50 years old and now 30 years later she is a legend for her cakes world-wide. The book is beautiful and the flowers in the book made out of sugar are breathtaking. PS. I love Sylvia’s glasses!
Below are a few pictures of Sylvia and I, her signing my book and some of the goodies I got to take home with me. All in all, a fabulous day!
