Mrs. Chaney's Cherubs & Confections

My old friend Kathie Chaney (also mother of my godson) has always been amazingly talented. She's a natural cook without any formal training (oh god, her doughnuts!) and is fabulous at any bit of artistic creation. Now she's combining these super abilities into Chaney's Cherubs and Confection. Below are some of her caketoppers- flowers that look like they're fresh from the garden, little babies that are fairylike in their tiny perfection...



See? I told you she's amazing. Kathie makes all of these by hand, molding and decorating in excruciating detail. Everything is edible (if you can bear to destroy them) and should stay shelf-stable if cared for correctly for several months if you want to keep it. I once had a sugar rose that lasted 7 years until it was dropped!
This is the economical way to dress up your cake without having to spend hundreds at a bakery.
The confectionery babies are $10 plus shipping. Flowers are by arrangement with her. You can contact her at  chaneyscherubs@gmail.com

I was brought up to believe that everyone has a special talent. I do believe that your friend has stolen the special talents of quite a number of people (mine included). Silliness aside, these are equisite. And I have a lilium just like that one in a vase at home at the moment - where it won't last seven weeks, let alone seven years.

Those little babies are so precious.

EC- she is ridiculously talented. And very funny and even sickeningly beautiful to boot. But I love her in spite of it all. ;)

Lawless- aren't they darling? Like something out of a storybook. And each has a different little face and expression.

Kick! I don't understand how you're not rich and famous. Proof that there's no justice in the world! I miss you too, sweetie. :( Hugs and kisses to all.
