What’s A Charm Cake? Elizabeth Mayhew On
NYC’s Most In-Demand Party Cakes

PRESENTED BY PLUGRÀ & CALIFORNIA PRUNES

Today’s guest is Elizabeth Mayhew, the cake artist known for her custom charm cakes. Think charm bracelets, but edible! Elizabeth joins host Jessie Sheehan to talk about her unique decorating style and how it came to be. She also guides Jessie through the chocolate charm cake she made for Cherry Bombe's Alex Mill event last year, and explains why her buttercream is so rich and silky (lots of egg yolks and homemade vanilla) and how she gets her colors just right. Plus, Elizabeth shares her trick for "erasing" a mistake and why being present and having patience are essential to baking.
