I had the opportunity to spend an afternoon this weekend with Iriene from Artylicious cakes. We met over at the WRAL gardens for a family session which was tons of fun, and then we switched gears and put the spotlight on mom. Remember the post I did on the amazing “Tangled” cake she did for my daughter’s fourth birthday (if not you can check it out here – http://www.kristikrusephotography.com/2012/02/15/tangled-up-in-birthday-fun-raleigh-child-photographer), well now you get to meet the amazing talented woman behind Artylicious cakes. She’s just a sweet as her cakes are, and I’m blown away with her work and details. I find myself at a loss for words other than amazing. I’m so glad that I found her and even more so that I can call her a friend. Here’s an extra large post with showcasing Iriene, who I may just start calling Raleigh’s cake boss!

She’s just as beautiful as her cakes =)
And now for the cakes! Iriene brought two cakes with her to the gardens. Not surprising that a crowd started to quickly gather and admire her work while we were photographing the cakes. Everyone was convinced the flowers on the cakes were real, but they are in fact sugar and 100 percent edible!
Look at these flowers. They look so real. I promise you, they are not. Pure sugar. Amazing detail. I know, I used the word amazing again. I told you, I seriously am at a loss of words to describe these cakes!
Thank you Iriene for spending the afternoon with me and for sharing your creations with me.
