Getting Healthy with Flavofit

Posted in Food, Two Cents on November 3rd, 2014 by Ruth – Be the first to comment

While making beautiful and delicious desserts has been a passion of mine for several years now, like many of you, becoming and staying healthy have been a lifelong quest. I can’t say that I have always maintained a condition that is tip-top, or eaten (or drank) for the part, but it is and has been an important part of my life and struggle as a human being. Being married, having a child and now getting older have made it a priority for me. I see my life in twenty years and beyond, and hope I will still be up for the task to face new challenges, both mental and physical. Becoming a parent has also made me want to set an example for my child and educate her on what good nutrition and good food is.

Nike LeBron 9 Elite GS “Miami Vice” Sneaker Cake

This sneaker cake was probably the most challenging sneaker cake I have had to make to date. It was extremely difficult to piece meal this sneaker together as each layer of the upper differed in texture. There is truly so much detailing to this sneaker.

Girly Dessert Table

I was contacted by someone who wanted to put an amazing table together for their triplet daughters! When I have clients approach me about desserts or cakes for twins, it is usually a little bit of a dilemma on how to approach the project. In this case I had to worry about showcasing three little girls. The girls’ dads used  a color-coded system to differentiate the three and wanted to incorporate girly motifs from nature: Butterflies, dragonflies, hummingbirds and flowers, but to keep it on the modern clean side. The components resulted in a table with delectable dessert items like lemon bars, French macarons, mini cupcakes, brownies, meringue kisses, and blonde bars dressed up as popsicles, along with a delectable candy bar. Each birthday girl has her own individual monogram cake with complementary flavors of strawberry shortcake, hummingbird cake and grasshopper cake.

NYC rules!

In light of this past week’s events with the strike of Hurricane Sandy, NYC has really risen to the occasion. I am amazed to see the number of people coming together to make great things happen, like the donations that are pouring in from everywhere to the victims who have been hit hardest in the wake of the Sandy disaster. I’d like to pay tribute by posting an image from an earlier cake. Let’s toast to NY!

Whale of a time Dessert Table

I worked on this table for my nephew’s first birthday some time ago. In Korean tradition, it is called Doljanchi or Dol for short. It is a large celebration, usually with traditional Korean rice cakes, fruits and decorative pillars very much in the style of a centerpiece table. Because my brother’s family lives in Maryland, I was limited in what I could bring with me from New York. The theme was based on his invitations which was a friendly whale. Please see the cake below.

Sneaker cakes are not only a popular request, but also a popular inquiry. They work great as either birthday cakes or grooms cakes. I have noticed the particular popularity of Air Jordans. This model is the Air Jordan 12 Jumpman.

This was actually a birthday cake. The client wanted to surprise his wife with a cake in the form of her favorite album. The detail of the woman is completely hand-painted by eye.
