The itty-bitty building on Whitehall Road that was most recently Rooter's has turned over a number of times in recent years, but it never sits vacant for long, despite the fact that zoning doesn't allow for sit-down service. Next up is Sweetie Pie by Savie, a custom and walk-up bakery that hasn't had its own space in Athens yet but has built a reputation for impressive work with fondant.
“Friday's opening performance of Steel Magnolias was a sellout. No detail was overlooked in the casting, costuming, set-design and decoration. I have to admit, they had me at the armadillo cake, perfectly (and repulsively) rendered by local entrepreneur Savie, of firstname.lastname@example.org, displayed in the lobby for the opening night's reception..."
"Savie, I wanted to thank you SO much for such a wonderful birthday cake! We all loved it and are still talking about it! You have a real talent"...Again, this was even better than we could have imagined! I hope you posted it on FB" ...April 27, 2014

One Thursday morning, I got an email from a lady named Grace who asked if I want to be part of the team to create an organic, amethyst inspired wedding style shoot at the Tree Room in Athens, GA. Our part was, of course, to create a "NAKED wedding cake" to go with the theme. Let me explain...the participants weren't going to be nude! A naked cake is a cake that is minimally frosted. Obviously we immediately say "yes". For me, an opportunity like this is a great way to let my imagination and creativity run wild!!
In the business perspective, this is a great opportunity for Sweetie Pie by Savie to collaborate with very talented people in the Athens/Atlanta area. Also, this will get our name out to the local professionals who work in the wedding business. You gotta love Athens for this reason; it's a community that is full of artists who are willing to help each other to make creative things happen. Here are some wonderful photos of our cake that were captured by Love Stories by Halie+Alec.
About the cake: Grace told me that it could be any size and any flavor. She loves to have the dripping of caramel ganache to create an aesthetic, organic, and effortless look for the cake.
I originally put some green-ish/purple-ish exotic flowers on the top and bottom tiers of the cake, but I was not sure if the cake would go well with other things on the set. Grace told me not to worry about it since they would have a professional florist from Bud and Bloom at the shoot to help.
Some flowers that they added on top of the cake really made the cake look more stunning and went really well with the scene. This is exactly how collaboration makes thing perfect!
