The cake artists

This page is to spotlight all of the St. Louis local artists who have put their time and effort into their cake masterpieces!

I have had the pleasure of meeting some of the artists, like Genevieve Esson, Rich Brooks, Mark Swain, Jennifer Hayes, and the Harmon women.

Page is under construction at the moment...but I assure you, the reader, will love it!
