Here is Heather’s bio:
Art is my Thrill and Cakes are my medium. I’ve always been an ecclectic, artistic mountain child, and involved in the kitchen, baking from a VERY early age. I remember being told as a little kid not to make scupltures out of my taco cheese. Through life I have experienced many mediums – paint, graphic design, engraving, photography, illustration, glass, kids and more, but then in 2008 I discovered CAKE. My earliest cakes got massive attention, and I continue to be dazed and delighted with the reactions my cakes get. I’ve been published in Cake Masters, Cake Central, Good Morning America Yahoo, Cooking.com, made cakes for Crosby, Stills & Nash, Cirque du Soleil, and many more. This Thrill is what drives me to make ever more daring designs – to “make cake fly”. It it the Oooohs and Ahhs that continue into Yuuuuummmms that make Cake Art so satisfying. Sculpted Cake is truly Performance Art; a multi-layered experience for all the senses. Art is my Thrill and Cakes are my medium
Here is Heather’s description of her Splendid cake:
I AM GROOT!!! Groot and Rocket Racoon from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” are some of the coolest superheroes ever. I relate to them – not truly human, and without “human” values. They break laws with impunity, but still honor the needs of others…especially the innocent. Rocket is the mean-cute furry conundrum that brains the outfit, while Groot is both unstoppable yet sweetly guiless, like a big kid, and eloquent. In the end, “WE are Groot”-
Here is the cake with a different background. The detail on this Guardians of the Galaxy cake is Amazing! I love the way Groot is holding a newly grown sprout in his hand. There are tiny green vines and leaves in-between the wooden parts of Groot.
Rocket is sitting on Groot’s shoulder. He is wearing a black and yellow outfit. I could not imagine Groot with Rocket Raccoon.
