My favorite part of Meringue is when I can work with a couple and create a wedding dessert that is truly custom to who they are and the message or feeling they want to give to their guests. This couple is a great example of how to think outside of the box. Let me start by saying they are the nicest couple. Both sweet and thoughtful. On the outside they do not appear to romantics, but just a few moments into meeting with them I had this feeling like they were both so appreciative to to have found one another. They told me a story of when they were driving through Laramie Wyoming. At the time, this man looked over to his (then) girlfriend and hew knew we wanted to spend the rest of his life with her. Right there, smack dab in Laramie Wyoming. They came in with a clear vision. They wanted a cake that had the Laramie skyline.
At Meringue, I am able to make cakes look like watercolor paintings by using tools including airbrushes, edible paints, fondant, paint brushes. Sometimes it looks a lot like an artist's studio in the kitchen. In 2003 I was a student at UW Barron County and I remember taking a watercolor class that I fell in love with. I would go home and paint landscapes over and over again. Who would have guessed a decade later I would be using those skills on a wedding cake?
