Meeting a Legend

Sylvia was gracious enough not only to make a special cake for the NACE 50th Anniversary, but also spoke during a breakout session.  I was mesmerized by the way she described shipping a cake across the country with such ease - I would be a nervous wreck if I were on the receiving end!

At a time when wedding cakes tasted bad but looked beautiful, Syliva made it her mission to make a cake that not only looked gorgeous and elegant but tasted wonderful too.  I share the same passion for planning events - your party shouldn't just looked great, it should be fun and memorable too.
