Central Park in spring

Congrats to this wonderful couple who got married in Central Park this May!

It was really fun creating this dress in clay, and surprisingly, I believe this was my first plaid!  The suit has a really cool texture as well, that I added with a steady hand and tiny needle.  Some of the other details I included were the makeup for her, and a bit of a five o-clock shadow for him.  Clean shaven he still has that rugged shadow goin on.

If you’re in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area and would like to see an example in person, check out Zingerman’s Cake! showroom, or send me an email and I would be more than happy to meet with you in person.

Galaxy Syrup

I found this awesome bottle at Treasure Mart a bit ago.  Apparently Space Foods Co., based in Baltimore, declared bankruptcy back in 1953, before distributing any of their product, or even filling the bottles in most cases!  It was going to be flavored syrup for home soda machines.  Now he’s just a cool bottle, or bank I suppose, as there’s a coin slot in the cap too.
