It is no surprise that we're huge fans of Maggie Austin Cake here at Karson Butler Events. Maggie & her sister/business partner Jess are two of the sweetest people we know. We're just thrilled to see Maggie Austin Cake boom in international popularity over the last few years (especially after creating Blake & Ryan's celebrity wedding cake this summer!) Maggie's designs are insanely gorgeous - carefully crafted with the utmost precision, beautiful artistry, sophistication and elegance and "with the subtle but unmistakable mark of haute couture." Earlier today, Maggie & Jess invited a few of us industry friends over for an open house in their wonderful Alexandria studio to taste a few new flavors and celebrate the upcoming season. Lucky us, right?!

The studio is decorated so elegantly - Emily and I adore their fabulous fixtures and furnishings -- in fact, their sheer panel curtains inspired the ones we hung in our own design studio!  What an impressive window display cake!

A sampling of cake flavors were presented so brilliantly in little mirrored display cases atop custom logo acrylic plates.  Each cake bite was held together with a sugar-flower toothpick.  They were almost too pretty to eat - notice I said ALMOST!  Who are we kidding?! Maggie's cakes are as wonderfully delicious as they are beautiful.  With flavors like Chocolate-Salted Carmel-Baileys and Pear-Blackberry-White Chocolate, it was hard to stop ourselves from over-indulging.  So yummy! The table centerpiece included sugar flowers & berries from a recent class Maggie taught.  How real do these look?  Amazing!

Thank you Maggie & Jess for the bubbly, the cake, the inspiration and your friendship. We're so very happy and proud to know you two! #sisterteamsrule
