Summer is quickly approaching and while May is long gone I have some really fun things to share with you. First, I would like to introduce some really amazing friends I had the opportunity to collaborate with this month. During my time off I had enough time to really sit back and appreciate all the bakers that I follow. Truth be told – I follow some amazing artist and I’m so proud to be a part of such a diverse and creative community.
If you haven’t heard by now ombré cakes have been making their way into the cake world in different forms for a few yrs now. In this collaboration you’ll see how the ombré cake style has been stepped up by these creative cake artist. The art of merging more than 2 colors to create a beautiful finish is more than what it use to be. Ombré generally refers to colors that are gradually blended from one color hue to another. Typically from the darkest to the lightest.
If you are new to this blog you’ll find that I love to share work from my cake and cookie friends. Beginners or not there is always room for community! But first you should know that this incredible collaboration was thought up by my sweet and talented friends Malek Binns, Owner of Frosted by Malek Binns LLC and Rasa Owner of Rasa Bakes.
I came across Malek on his IG page and was really just floored by his energy in his funny videos and his work! His cookie game is on point!! *sigh* Cookies are life! I was fortunate enough to be a part of Malek’s 5k followers giveaway. How awesome is that?! I’m so grateful to him and if I’m being totally honest he’s very inspiring to watch- Even to me! someone that has been almost 15 yrs. in this crazy baking game.
Malek is a seasoned and publish baker with a recent publication in Voyage Houston. Baking for just about 9 yrs and completing his AA from Le Cordon Bleu School of Culinary Arts. A true inspiration to all and any up and coming bakers. Also, did I mention his Sprinkles line? It’s FAB!… Go Check it out! Sprinkled by Malek
