A Young Baker to Watch

We were thrilled to have Sara Schwabe enter the 2013 Architectural Cake Contest. Although Sara, a 20-year-old student from Mitchell, Indiana, is an avid baker, this was her first cake contest. We were blown away by her ambitious (and tasty!) rendering of the Taj Mahal.

I was so impressed by Sara’s ingenuity that I asked about other examples of her work. Her mother sent the following mouthwatering¬†pictures.
