There are just some people here on CC who makes cakes that are so awesome you find yourself drooling while looking at the pictures, hoping and wishing you made the cake or, even better, were there in person to bask in its glorious beauty (or eat it!) Then you find yourself...stalking their cakes, spending hours just browsing through their gallery of delicious art. And eventhough you have probably put every picture they have in your favorites and left comments, somehow you feel it's not enough. Your admiration is just too much, you cannot keep it to yourself anymore.

Well, this is the thread for that. Post your cake crush and why you are infatuated with their work/technique/style. Don't worry, they won't know. It's all anonymous (NOT!)

I'll go first.

You are such an inspiration. Your cakes are beyond awesome from the bobblehead cake to the simple and elegant cake you made for your sister. Your work is precise, clean, well thought out and conceptually stunning. I am embarrassed to admit how many hours I have spent looking through your pictures. Please don't ask me to. I hope my unabashed declaration of my admiration for your work will not stop you from posting those delectable pictures. Thank you for sharing your work and your talent and creativity with mere cake mortals like me.

Wanna know what I'm talking about? Check out her gallery here

okay. YOUR TURN! icon_biggrin.gif

The two I admire the most (criteria to get this honour is based on number of their cakes I have saved lol) are...

1. tonedna - for her beautifully artistic, original and elegant designs, her use of different techniques and her ability to make an all white cake pop.

2. jaklotz1 - for her precision, her unique and innovative designs and bold use of colours.

**edited to add**

If I knew how to link their galleries I would lol icon_razz.gif

I have a major crush on MacsMom, the most underrated decorator here on CC LOL. I only say that because she creates so many masterpieces, they cannot possibly all be seen by mere mortal-kind. Then, do we even need to mention Sugarshack and Aine2?? I mean, they are just so obvious. All three of the above-mentioned decorators blow me away not only with their skills, but also with their generosity with regard to how much they share with the decorating community. There are about a gazillion more. Antonia74, jkalman and tonedna (yes indeed!), ShirleyW (now gone on CC but you can find her on Flickr)...so many more. Too many to choose from!

My vote is for a cookie artist: TracyLH . I have no desire to do cookies but you can spot her work a mile away. She makes me want to try it..even though I am not that patient for all the detail she puts in. She makes me green with envy. icon_redface.gif (in a good way).

ivgotahalo Posted 4 Apr 2009 , 6:46am

Hello.,.. My name is Tiffany, and I am a cake stalker. i LOVE Aine2's work! I have seen EVERY video she makes. I am her friend on Facebook. AND... I ALMOST have my husband convinced that I MUST go to NYC in October to take her classes!

Wow... it feels good to get that off my chest!
haha

I totally agree! Macsmom would have to be my cake crush! I have learned to so much from her! Not to mention all the yummy goodness she has shared in the gourmet flavors thread. Oh yeah, not that I have to mention her cakes but...her cakes rock too! I see her cakes and say to myself..."I want to be like her when I grow up"!

Honestly, there are too many cake divas on CC to pick one or even five!

Win Posted 4 Apr 2009 , 4:22pm

My first is Fairytale... her work is incredible.
Gallery: http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-photos-by-Fairytale.html

Aine2 comes in a close second tied with Tonedna.....

As well, all these ladies are gracious and helpful --and humble. They never turn away a person who needs help. I think that is the mark of an excellent decorator.

Chef_Stef Posted 5 Apr 2009 , 8:54pm

Edna of course, and the others already mentioned.

And Emma, who I haven't seen on here in ages (emmascakes). Where did she get to? You could spot an emma cake a mile away.

Also tutugirl--I have tons of her beautiful and simply perfect cakes saved.

Sharon of Sharon's Sugar Shack.

Chef_Stef Posted 5 Apr 2009 , 8:55pm

Also let's not forget Peggylicious. Incomparable!

bobwonderbuns Posted 5 Apr 2009 , 9:11pm

JenniferMI for one, her cakes are flawless and bring a whole new meaning to simple elegance. Plus I adore her DVDs.

There are a number of others too, but sadly some have left CC for good. I don't even know where I would start a list like that though... icon_rolleyes.gif
