About Rock Candy Cakes, Livermore
Michele Burkett, Cake Artist
Alameda County Department of Envrionmental Health Permited Cottage Food Operator. Permit #PT0312778. (I legally work out my home kitchen).
I consider each one of my unique cakes to be "edible art." While, I've always done cake decorating as a hobby, I've spent the last few years learning new techniques in sugar art. I don't think "traditional" when it comes to celebration cakes and love to make cakes as unique as the person they are being made for. I specialize in fondant icing to provide unique themes, shapes, designs and colors to create a one-of-a-kind cake. Whether it's a replica of your favorite purse or a bucket of beer, I'll make a cake that will make an impact and be a centerpiece for your special occasion. I also love the art of chocolate making. I have worked in the chocolate industry and have been making hand-made truffles for over 15 years. I recently completed a Professional Chocolatier course through an international artisan chocolate program. I am a wife and a mother of two. I spent my college years and career in Advertising and Graphic Design which help with me with the visual aspects and design of each cake. I am always learning new techniques and attending seminars/classes to increase my decorating skills and baking knowledge. I also own and run a very successful on-line business, MyGarter.com, in which I make and sell personalized and custom garters for weddings and proms.
What I Provide:
You can expect a specially designed, unique piece of edible art. I am not a traditional "cake baker". My cakes are very unique and not available in most bake shops.
Plus, my cakes taste as good as they look. I bake from scratch using only the freshest and best quality ingredients including couverture chocolate, butter, fresh dairy, pure vanilla and spices, fruit purees and pure cane sugar. This gives a truly enjoyable flavor and texture to my cakes. Each cake is designed by me, baked by me, iced and decorated by me so I take pride in every little aspect from the measurements to any fine detail work.
