I sketch every now and then when an idea pops into my head but have used only one on a cake. Last night I spent about an hour going thru the latest "Wedding Cakes" magazine, which just came out, and started sketching more ideas for my cakes with the hopes that I make them. I love the Cake Central magazine and that started my latest sketching project plus reminded me of the things I have laying around in my hutch;) How often do you sketch out your ideas and actually put them on your cakes? I'm not talking about a consultation between you and your client but your own ideas.
i love to sketch ideas for my cakes and cookies too! i'm doing 4 dozen wedding cake cookies and i'd like a lot of them to look different, so i have a pad near me at all times and just start sketching when the idea hits! for cakes i like to look at pictures that others have done and modify to my taste.
