  1. These are stunning! and i bet delicious too. I miss the world of pastry and confections, not the long and excruciating working hours, but the beautiful creations and delicate artistic balance. Well, at least i still have pictures (like these) to keep me dreaming.

    1. HI Paula, I didn’t realize you were previously a pastry chef too until I read your blog. What kind of pastry jobs did you hold? Maybe we have similar backgrounds! How did you manage to change careers?

      1. Hi Ashley, i worked in every position from pastry 1 to pastry chef (Denver museum of nature an science) and then opened up a wedding cake and dessert table business which i ran for 6 year. Career change was more a need than a want (health related), so i had to go back to school. I found an interest in communications, specifically PR and strategic media relations and currently work at the Denver Art Museum. The blog is a way to practice writing and opening up from the ‘flour mouse’ i used to be. I would love to work for a winery or a restaurant group since that is what i know best, however, i love the museum and all the art stuff i’m learning.
        How did you get started with photography? You surely have a great business opportunity there since your photos are amazing.

      2. Wow, you’ve been through the ringer! Opening a wedding cake and sweet table business must have been intensely hard work. I’m glad to hear you found something else of interest. I myself don’t feel this business is a fully sustainable one, as the hours and expectations can at times really be a killer. I’m definitely hoping to branch out into something related yet ‘different’ in the future….

  2. They are so pretty, I am particularly impressed with the half spheres, some of them remind me of planets 🙂 Are they plain chocolate? Or is there something inside?

      1. OMG YUM! I am so glad I get to go to lunch soon!
        Now that I have thought of them as little planets all I can think is that it would be so cool if they did a solar system range hahaha.
