I’m popping in today to tell you about the January Who Takes the Cake? Contest Winner! This beautiful “Love” creation is brought to us by Brittany Meeks-Carr of Sugar On Top Cakes!
I absolutely love this cake! The pink and gold mix is just perfect!!
I asked Brittany to share a little about herself and her business:
My name is Brittany Meeks-Carr and I’m the owner of Sugar On Top Cakes & Sweets. I started Sugar On Top in 2010 in Madison, Virginia. I have always been baker, I can remember being young, maybe 4, and baking cornbread with my great-grandma! In high school, I loved to bake. I came up with an idea to make and sell pound cakes during the holiday season to make money for Christmas gifts. After high school I was supposed to attend Johnson & Wales to become a pastry chef. I was thrown a curveball and I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. My passion was put on hold and I stopped baking. A few years later, a friend needed help piping on a tiered cake, from helping her that one time, it sparked a passion I had buried. I now run Sugar on Top full time and I love every minute of it! I make all types of cakes from wedding and groom cakes to birthday cakes and naughty cakes for bachelor/bachelorette parties!
How inspiring is that!? I love to hear stories of triumph and passion – when someone overcomes difficulty and pushes on with their dreams! Simply amazing!
In addition to the cake that won the contest, I asked Brittany to share some of her favorite creations with us and I have to tell ya – you don’t want to miss a single one of them! They’re all fun and beautiful!
Happy Caking Everybody! Stay tuned for the next Who Takes the Cake? Contest coming up soon!
