I love baking. I grew up baking with my mom. Every Sunday we would bake cookies and muffins together, sometimes cakes if it was a birthday. She had all these cookie recipes written out on cards, a lot of recipes passed down from her mom’s mom. My favorites were the peanut butter cookies and the oatmeal cookies. At Christmas we would make recipes my mom made as a little girl. All of this is to say that I have a soft spot in my heart for bakers. I love trying the different flavors of their cakes and how creative they get with decorating them. Hence why I am writing this blog post about two epic bakers in Houston!
The two bakers below are amazing. Their cakes, their decorating, everything! They kill it! I have referred many a happy couple to them, and I always look forward to capturing and eating their cakes on the wedding day.
Wink by Erica
I met Wink by Erica through a styled shoot, but before that I was obsessed with her work thanks to social media. Erica is so stinkin talented with being creative with treats. Initially I was obsessed with her donuts, but that was just because I hadn’t tried her cake flavors. As a foodie, the flavors chocolate espresso, white chocolate raspberry and whisky chocolate are divine. The thing I love most about her treats is how colorful and whimsical they are. She is always trying new things, new shapes, and loves animals, so they show up in her work a lot. Take a peak at her work below!
Good Gosh Ganache
How I met Good Gosh Ganache is similar to Wink by Erica. Social media obsession turned friend through a styled shoot. Jennifer, the mastermind behind this bakery. She went to school for design, and you can tell when you see her cakes. She has won 13 awards for her cakes and has been featured in places like American Cake Decorating and Cake Central. Her detail work on her cake is second to none. She can nail any design you can think of. She also has delicious cake flavors. My husband’s favorites are comfort food and reese’s. Ok enough bragging on her, look at her cakes below!
