Best Cake Artist in the Triangle

Cake Artist Heather Singleton, Party Delights,

Have you noticed the proliferation of cake television shows over the past few years, such as Cake Boss, Ace of Cakes, Ultimate Cake Off, Wedding Cake Wars, etc.? More importantly, have you wished you could design and make awesome cakes like the bakers on these shows, or at least enjoy the delicious fruits of their labors?

Luckily, the popularity of “Cake TV” has brought with it new designer cake shops popping up everywhere, elevating cake baking to a new art form. In the Triangle, you can order cakes that taste just as wonderful as they look from bakers/shops such as Dreme Cake Artistry, Edible Art, Sugarland, and Simply Cakes, just to mention a handful.

So who makes the best and most beautiful cakes in the Triangle? Let us know by nominating your favorite cake artist in the comments section below. The poll will run from Nov. 1 through Nov. 30. The winner will receive a plaque, web badge, and bragging rights recognizing that he or she has been voted the Best Cake Artist in the Triangle.
