Wedding Wednesday: Maggie Austin Cake

Today I wanted to share a beautiful artist from DC, I know my Floridian ladies, she is not located here in FL, however I think you will find her cakes inspiring and beautiful! I have seen Maggie Austin's gorgeous cake images floating around on the Internet, on Pinterest, on blogs, I was even so happy to see them in Martha Stewart Weddings. Until I read Maggie's story in last week's Washington Post article I didn't know her background at all. A past ballerina with an injury who taught herself most of what she does with her gorgeous works of arts, her cakes.

Below is a photo of Maggie at her new studio in Old Town Alexandria. How beautiful!

Maggie's white ruffled cake is couture and beautiful. The Mandarin Hotel in Washington loved her work so much that now she is the preferred wedding cake boutique for their couples.

Here are a few images of the lovely pieces that she has created.
The images are all shot by Maggie herself.

Ooooo, I absolutely love this pretty cake with layers of black and white call delicately ruffled up. Isn't it gorgeous! I may not even be able to take a slice it is so pretty!
Read Maggie's whole story in the Washington Post here. I found this past Joffrey Ballet dancers story really inspiring to follow your heart and turn a passion into a business. It helps that her passion is in creating amazingly beautiful wedding cakes! Check out Maggie's other wedding art on her site here, yes I said art:)
