IMG_0573_1-s

One of my favourite activities in New York was to simply set out from my little apartment in Washington Street with my camera and no particular place to go.   On this day, I hadn't gone far when I was stopped in my tracks by this delightful little shop front.  (At 681 Washington Street)  I thought I had happened upon a set for Alice in Wonderland.  So whimsical .  I stood for ages just marvelling at the beauty of it.  Set against this backdrop of bits of china, buttons, spoons, old cd's and bits of mirror, were cakes, the like of which I had never seen before.

Cake making is by appointment only and they don't come cheap at a starter cost of $1000.  However, they are true creations born of the clients needs and interests. Edible works of art.  Each a one off. You can't put a price on that.

I recommend a trip to Colettes website for more information and books showcasing her work.
