Satin Ice Cake of the Month:
A bride who had a vision of a beautiful rustic themed wedding cake called upon Myton Ouano - and that is exactly what he created! Adorned with stunning succulent sugar flowers and a layer of exposed bark, the bride got the cake of her dreams and Myton was crowned Satin Ice Cake of the Month!
Name: Myton Ouano - Buckeye, Arizona, USA
Education: As an artist, I have been doing it since I was in the grade school, my parents were my first art teachers then I just continued pursuing my interest in the arts as I grew up, I have never attended a formal art class, most of my art knowledge were just from my own readings and lessons from my friends who attended art classes. Professionally, I have a bachelor's degree in Nursing, which is also my part time job.
Describe the cake, details and techniques: This cake was a mixture of techniques that I have learned from other amazing cake artists - the worn out wood I learned from Kara Andretta's tutorial, then the flowers and succulents were a mix of Nicholas Lodge's and Jacqueline Butler's techniques from their Craftsy classes.The top layer: I used the cobble stone impression mat, but I used it in its reversed side to somehow appear like a hammered copper texture. Then I airbrushed it with a copper sheen.
The bottom tier was covered with burlap cake lace and then dusted with metallic dust - and then over it I added another layer of cake lace.
What is the inspiration for this winning cake?
The inspiration of this cake was the bride's rustic/vintage garden theme - which she then gave me total freedom to execute my design! I was very thankful that she gave me her trust with regards to the design and colors. After I showed her my sketch and description for each tier - she gave me the green light to do it!
How much time did you spend creating this cake?
For the flowers & succulents, I spent a total of 3 days and I made it a week before, then for the actual cake I spent 2 days.
What do you do while you work?
I have a TV in my kitchen; it is always on when I am working on my kitchen watching Netflix series!
