Today (finally) I want to do a feature post about Amanda Amicangelo from Upon a Cake – the winner of the April Who Takes the Cake Contest!
I told you on Saturday why I’m so far behind, so forgive me for not getting this up sooner. But while I’m borrowing a laptop and writing tonight, I hope to also get the new Who Takes the Cake? contest post also written and scheduled to go up later this week!
But enough about that… let’s talk about the winner!
I asked Amanda to share a little about herself and her business:
I started making cakes like most, my wonderful daughter turned 1, 4 years ago. I really started becoming obsessed with it a couple of years ago. Since then I have opened an Etsy shop and home cake business in Massachusetts. I also love seeing everyone else in the cake communities work! I am honored to have won this contest, I’ve never won anything before! I strive everyday to improve my techniques & composition and recently started expanding my business to include my Mother’s handmade decorative soap. I truly love all things cake!
In addition to the cake that won the contest, I asked Amanda to share some of her favorite creations with us and here they are:
My four year old was sitting next to me as I wrote this and that was his favorite… remember, he’s my tractor lover!!
This Friends cake really snagged my attention – I’m just loving the couch!
And here are a few others that she shared…
